Do I have to continue living like this? For those of you who know my story and read my thanksgiving post know I have been living in hell with my DH. Well if Thanksgiving wasn't enough he had to ruin Chritmas now. I'm done. Ever since he came home from the rehab he has been acting "weird" and I've been trying to work through it but it's not working. He can't get over the fact that I am sick and am collecting SSI. He calls me a drug addict and every other bad thing. Most husbands learn about their wife's illness so they can help, mine learned so he can torture me with stress and aggravation so I can't walk. Now he's on vacation all week and it started already. He is running around this house like a rat in a cage so I went to bed because whatever I do he has fault with so I learned to remove myself from his presence and he still is carrying on. I haven't slept in days. I am ashamed to say that he set me up again today and we went at it loud and clear, unfortunately I can't take the stress and I get very upset well it ended with him beating me in front of my daughter and he called my mother just in the heat of it and she is such a sick person that she stood their and watched him beat me and told him to throw me out and he could stay. Do you believe this? I think she was actually getting off on it because her husband beat her. My dilemma is that the judge ordered that my daughter's money go to him because of the meds I'm on. I have called SSi and they told me that to get the letter from him and my doctor which I have for years and they still won't change it over because he won't go up there. I am the only one who is taking care of my daughter, he goes to work and that's it and since he hasn't worked in over two months he can't pay the bills. He only pays part of my daughter's school and everything else is coming out of her account, he won't give me anything so I could treat her to a movie every now and then pr anything. I'm spending tons of money on food that he is eating because he only spends it occasionly. Of course, he didn't do a thing for Christmas and I had to rely on strangers to take me shopping for gifts. I managed to give my daughter a nice Christmas but the creep ruined everything. There is no turning back now, I want him out. All he has done is torture me for getting sick. He wants the pretty wife he had and I'm obviously not fitting that bill anymore. I'm prepared to get a lawyer now and get on with it. I don't trust him and I can't live like this. My house is a mess, he won't do a thing but make a mess and I can't keep up with them.
