    I'm not handling this well. I'm not strong enough to be in pain every day. I'm on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Between the fibro dx and the realization that I cannot stay in my marriage, I'm a mess. I contacted a lawyer today and have an appt on monday. He seemed very nice. My husband is out of town for a bit. I considered telling him while he's away, but decided to wait until after I speak to the lawyer. I called a local domestic abuse hotline and was told that the kind of abuse he's doing is valid. Emotional and mental abuse is real. So, that's good. I can't believe this is my life. I can't believe a person can be happy and hurt so bad and feel on fire.

    I do not know where you are from, but most states now have some kind of shelter for abused women. They will help you, not only in giving you a safe place to go, but also in job assistance and counselling. Do talk to them, you owe it to yourself. Remember you are not the one with the problem. Please read up on abusive relationships and it is well known once an abuser, it is hard to change that person's actions.
