My x husband is an adult bully! He has turned my life into a living nightmare! i wish I could write a book about it.. but my kids would see it and hate me more! I got divorced and my x made alot of money but I was verbally abused by him - Here was a great line.. I have to dumb down to talk to you! Do you even have an IQ?
So he told me give him the kids before I lose all my money - They are my kids not my lunch money! But If you met my x he is charming and personal and seems great!! ADULT BULLY!

I would say some counseling is in order, and if you didn't have court orders before, perhaps now would be a good time to look into that?

I was in a verbally abusive relationship some time ago and fortunately, we did not have children. I understand where your hurt and pain are coming from. It is good that you seek counseling for yourself, first. Before you can rationally deal with the situation, you will need to heal and release the pain.

Does he want to hurt and weaken you? Yes, because he knows that he can. Don't give him power over you.

It took time for me to be able to even listen to the voice of the man that hurt me. Now I can hear his voice and sometimes even laugh because I know he's trying to dig deep to find things that hurt me, but not today.

Would your children dislike you more for telling the truth or not standing up for yourself?

What kind of help are you looking for? Did you give him your son/kids? Is there a court ordered custody agreement? I'm sorry, I really don't know what to say, there's just not enough information.
