Dear Notorious,

Firstly, you are important and it does matter. It sounds like you have been enduring emotional abuse for a very long time and that must be draining for you.

You are somebody and you deserve everything. its natural to want to stay with your daughter, your husband knows how much she means to you and is using this to continue the mental abuse.

It may be worth contacting your local women’s support service about your situation. You could also call the helpline on 0808 2000 247 where a trained female helpline worker can talk through options with you.

I hope you find the forum a supportive place to be.

Take care and keep posting

Best Wishes,
