Today was a bad day. As my husband stood at the door watching I backed into his truck in the drive way. I was lucky enough that he was holding my grand daughter at the time because he came walking towards me screaming every insult one could think of ( I do understand his anger and I did do it but accidents happen). I do truly believe he would of hit me. He continued once inside to kick the stove throw a chair at the fridge and break some of my favorite dishes (so he thought) screaming opps sorry didnt see them I’m a maroon. My grand daughter didn’t seem to be fazed at first but once she started crying he seem to come out of his anger and calmed down and apologized to her for scaring her. I’m a very passive person I never stick up for myself or speak up I just stand their like a deer in headlights. I just wanted to find a hole to hide in. I considered going downstairs to a cold, dark small room with my blankets and a heater and hide out for awhile. I did not do that which for me I thought was a win. I’m not suicidal but I’d lie if I didn’t say I didn’t wish for death to take me in my sleep, I’m so ready for freedom. They say (if one believe in god, I’m a atheist) that you are not given more than you can handle. So I’ve been put on this earth to tolerate mental abuse daily and be to cowardly to do anything about it. I call bullshit.

I'm sorry you had to go through such an ordeal, I'm glad to know you're safe. It can be harder for some to leave than stay. Sometimes we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Welcome to the site, I hope it can help cushion some of the pain you must feel time to time. We're here to listen and vent as well. Hugs
