      My god, it gets worse by the day. As I type he spouts vile comments at the TV, swearing, sexual vulgarity, he’s drunk but that’s no excuse. He has no filter and actually said earlier that if he was me, he’d leave!!.

      I can’t imagine a time when my stomach doesn’t churn or my every waking thought is about him.

      I long for peace. 😢

      My heart hurts for you, the dread at waking every day, the stomach churning.

      Don’t let him suck all the goodness out of your life.

      Hi Love18,

      As you can see , you are not alone in how you are feeling. It’s important you feel supported right now as it’s clear you are going through a difficult time.
      Have you reached out to your local domestic abuse service yet? Even if it is to talk and receive assurance and validation. They can provide both emotional and practical help if needed.

      Also, you could try calling Supportline who offer confidential emotional support to reach people before they get to “crisis” point. They offer support by telephone, email and post. They work with callers to develop healthy, positive coping strategies, an inner feeling of strength and increased self-esteem to encourage healing, recovery and moving forward with life. They also keep details of counsellors, agencies and support groups throughout the UK. They cover a wide range of issues, including domestic abuse. They can also refer locally. You can contact them on 01708 765200.

      No Panic is a membership support group providing services to people suffering from anxiety and other disorders. They provide telephone support groups and 14 week telephone therapy courses which offer coping strategies for people who live in isolated or rural surroundings. Postal strategy courses are available as well. Information is available in various formats for small costs on the website. Their helpline can be contacted on 0300 772 9844 (10am-10pm). They also operate a 24-hour crisis line available on 01952 680 835.

      Please do continue to post here to let us know how you are getting on. I hope you are able to engage in extra support from the services mentioned.

      Take good care,

      Lisa
