Hi Rache,

Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I hope that we can help you some.

I am worried about his temper. Are you really afraid that he might become physically violent with you or the little one? It is not a safe environment for either one of you. Do you have family that you could go to stay with if you needed to. You shouldn't have to worry about your or your daughter's safety.

You might have to check into a shelter to stay at until you get on your feet, but anything would be better than fearing for your safety. I am sure that you can get on the internet and find some places or phone numbers. If you are really afraid, don't hesitate to get out of there. You shouldn't have to walk on eggshells in your own home. So please take care of you and your little girl.

Hugs, Karen

You have us to talk to now, so don't hesitate to post if you feel the need to. You might want to consider counseling for support and direction. I hate to see you being treated badly. Hopefully it will remain verbal, but you don't deserve that either. It sounds like he needs some medication and/or counseling himself. Maybe if you talk to him about it, he will go to the doctor and get some assistance.

I hope that things become better for you. Keep posting and know that we are all here for you.

Hugs, Karen
