Thinking of leaving my husband. He neglects me & can be emotionally abuse.
Take stock of who you were, embrace the possibilities of who you can be, breath, then take every step necessary to find you, even as you walk out that door.
You can do this ...
Brave girl, I am in the same position. Just housemates, nothing more, yet my husband is very controlling, wants to know who I am with, how long I'll be, how much it will cost, I'm living on eggshells all the time. And my young adult kids who still live with us I know feel the same about living on eggshells, I just don't think they have worked out why yet. I am working towards leaving but I need to get myself a more secure job first, and its horrible wanting out but can't yet. I too have felt very along - but I have found it useful being on here, although I haven't posted much, its nice to know there is support out there. I don't have any family here and any Facetime calls I make are monitored, so I don't have anyone to talk to, except on here.
I don't think I have helped, but I hope it may help you with knowing you are not alone. I have struggled for a couple of years now and really wrestled with whether to leave or not, but ultimately we only have one life, and even if that life is living on our own I have reached the conclusion that its better than eggshells.

Hello Brave girl, really appreciate the courage you have in posting your comment, just as others have been able to do, now is the time to look after yourself, enjoy some long lost freedom where you can virtually do what you want, where you want without any fear of being abused, either emotionally or perhaps worse.
Just as Lady Nova and Sophie have been able to do is free themselves from a marriage that was unfavourably dominated by their husband, we hope you can do the same.
There are a couple of difficult decisions for you to make in regards to financial and property matters but are you able to have a lawyer do this on behalf of yourself, rather than engage in discussions with him.
Talk with your doctor to regain the strength to find a much better life and would to hear back from you.
