Hi. I'm 47 years old ,and have been married for 27 years. My husband's 51 and we have 2 children. Our daughter is almost 26 and our son is 21. Our daughter doesn't live with us any more, she's very successful at her career, just like our son ,who is a professional athlete. My husband has a painting business, a couple of men working for him and he's doing really well. Me , I'm afraid that I don't know what or who I am any more. Overworked, suffering from clinical depression and after years of being very successful at work, running, the house, looking after the children and husband and helping him by doing all the administration work for his business. I'm better now but for a couple of years it was a nightmare. Living with depression, no one understanding why I would be like that, almost as if I asked for it. I know that I'm mentally and emotionally abused by my husband. I see a therapist every week but for the life of me can't make up my mind what to do....

Hi. Thank you so much for the message. I didn't know if anyone would read my email because it's so long but I just wanted to get the basics of my problems out. My husband doesn't think that he has a problem. Looking from the outside no one would think that my life isn't as happy as everyone think it is. Only my best friend know the details and our children. Even them didn't know until they got older and started seeing and understanding that their dad can be very difficult. When I finally said to him that I believe he has anger problem and that I would like him to see someone about it , he was very offended. He has 'temper' he says , and when he's stressed out about work or anything else, he just can't 'have a smile on his face and talk about it'.

Have your husband start going to therapy also. If he is emotionally abusive, have you addressed this? Have you thought about leaving him? Prime time, kids are out of the house. You should not have to live with abuse.
