Feel trapped and a bit lost
Hi. I am new to the forum. I am not sure I am writing in the correct section.
I am in a loveless, sexless marriage and we basically live at different ends of the house and we are house mates.
About 6 years ago he went to hit me and things have gone down hill since then.
About a year and a half ago my gp put me on a low dose of antidepressants for antidepressants for anxiety but I was quite resistant and stressed and I think I had a reaction to them.
It was not a pleasant experience.
Things here are pretty terrible as he has a medical condition and he says things, forgets and then I will be a liar etc. If is very toxic.
I have thought about attempting but realistically I know that I would not be able to do it.
I just feel so trapped as I feel that there is no way out of the situation as if I leave him there is nowhere to go, how will I survive, there is nowhere to rent.
My only choice is to stay in the marriage.
Sorry about the rambling.
I went to my appointment with the lawyer and we had to do it by phone conference which I found a bit awkward.
I gave her as much information as I could and she supplied me with a figure of division of assets.
Basically he would get the house as he could afford to buy me out and custody of the dogs and I could arrange visitation rights. This is because he looks after them the most while I have been working.
Yes I would get a settlement, my car and super but I would lose what is most important to me.
Basically I feel like I have to just toe the line and smile to avoid a conflict.
On a positive I did make an appointment to see a counsellor on Tuesday.
