I have felt like this on and of for over two years. My husband is a bully and speaks to me really badly. Now my kids are older they are doing it too. I just feel really bullied and picked on. Want to cry. I want to leave and then they can have the house and I dont want any of the money, I want my kids to still have their home. Another reason that I feel picked on is that noone wants to help at all around the house. My hubby always complains when I ask him to help and now the kids do too. They all tell me that I am lazy and fat.

Could you go into counselling? I would put you and your family into some family counselling.

If your husband refuses make your children go with you and leave him behind.

If everyone refuses go on strike. Tell them you aren't doing ANYTHING until they go to a counselling session with you (once you find what you feel is an adequate counsellor).

Don't pick up after them, don't make them dinner, don't do their laundry. Just stop doing things for them until they're willing to go with you. If they complain tell them I guess they can clean up after themselves until they're ready to start learning to treat you with respect.

You deserve respect. Start treating yourself with respect, don't put up with this. Go into counselling by yourself until they are ready and willing to go with you. I'm not saying this will solve all your problems but you aren't going to get anywhere unless you take a stand and do SOMETHING.

If you feel bullied tell them, and if it doesn't change then you may have to leave for your mental health.

I wouldn't put up with that for a second.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
