    I’m new on here and just feel at the end of my tether and so alone and dont know how
    things ended up like this. My husband is verbally and emotionally abusive, i’m constantly called names, told by him eveything is my fault, the problems he has are my fault, i dont suppourt him, that the marriage usnt working etc. I’ve asked him to go, he never does and i’m just stuck in a awful situation. I dont want to be with him but cant carry on like this, we have a mirtgage on the house and i would rather he leaves, i’m constantly on egg shells with him and just cant see a way out

      Hi Literaldust. Your doing ok! You got your message out here. Lisa suggestions to post a new topic here on the forum is going to give you some practice using this forum, and get you noticed! You just have to press New topics on front page, the yellow one, go to bottom and press create new topic. Then give it a heading to give clues to what your saying. Then press send after. You should get replies hopefully? There’s a lot of people coming through now! Sometimes it takes a while…but someone should come along. If they don’t? Just post another to get noticed because they slip down and off the page quickly appearing on previous pages. Page numbers Found at bottom of New topics. Good luck x

    Hi @bonnie

    A good place to start is here. You’ve found the forum and are sharing and posting which is a massive step. Welcome 🙏

    Next step for me was reading loads of posts on here and reading books such as Lundy Bancroft’s Why Does He Do That and Pat Craven’s Living with the Dominator. As I mentioned on an earlier post, these were real eye openers for me. Then I contacted Women’s Aid. They gave me loads of good advice and I saw a solicitor they recommended who dealt with domestic abuse. A lot of these solicitors will give you a free 30 mins so you can use that to get your most pressing questions answered.

    And of course, utilise the wealth of knowledge and experience that the women on this forum can offer. There is a way out for you. You just need some help to find it x*x

      Hi BurntOut,

    Hi to the newbies
    We were all new once wondering if it was abuse and sadly finding out it was. The ladies here help so much and it’s comforting in a sad way that we’re not alone. If you need to ask if you were abused then by the answer is yes because people in well adjusted, not maladaptive,relationships never question their happiness in that way. You’ve come to the right place and no matter how long it takes you to open up when you do we’ll be here side by side all together 💙
