Hi there,

Welcome to the depression forum.

What I am reading is not good. First of all, nobody makes him drink. He does that on his own. and you are not responsible for his moods. He owns them too.

As long as you stay with him, you will be unhappy until he changes. There is no excuse for the verbal abuse. And I worry that it will get worse.

I know that you don't want to leave him. You feel that he is your sole existance, but that is not true. You are your own person and deserve to be happy. I am sorry for your situation, but if you stay, you have to continue to live with this. You both could use some counseling. I think that you should go to it. It is a great form of support and you will learn self confidence. Think about it. You are not happy, and you wont be as long as he continues to drink and be selfish.

I hope that this helps some. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but it is the truth.

Hugs, Karen

HI HM. jamie here, male, 37.
 
sorry sweetie, as a compassionate man i could not nor would not do this to my loved other. he can NOT have his cake and eat it too!! he is very toxic for you at the moment. unless he is ready to put his hand up and actually do stuff, ie, counselling and assistance for his drinking then he is only going to bring you down even further. i am sorry for the situation, i too know of the pressures when i get down (medically) as a lot of us do. vomiting, blood, etc. you need some healing time. yes maybe you guys will get back? but unless he is committed then i see no other alternative at this point. sending healing prayers your way. jamie.
 
sorry for being a tad direct, i just real upset by situations alike this. hugs to you. be strong, be brave and beleive in you.

As long as you stay with him, you are going to be unhappy. Unless he changes his ways. That is the bottom line. You can't be here to make others happy. You have to make yourself happy. That is all that there is to it. You are blaming yourself for his problems. That is not right. Take care of you, and the rest will fall into place.

You are worrying too much about his happiness and not thinking enough of yourself. As long as you keep letting him treat you this way, he will continue. To put it truthfuly, stand up for yourself, or get out of this relationship. That is the bottom line. but are you going to any counseling? I think it would really help you to get stronger. He is not showing you the respect that you deserve, but you are enabling him by trying to compensate for what he is lacking in the relationship. I know that you love him, but you should love yourself more. Going to counseling would teach you how to love and respect yourself. You truly need that right now. I am sorry, but as long as you stay with him in these circumstances, you are always going to feel hurt and unhappy.

I hope that you consider counseling in this matter.

Hugs, Karen

the truth is i dont have money with me to go for counselling...im not employed and i dont want to ask my parents coz they will not first of all approve of it, they think ill be stamped as amad girl for life, and secondly theyll blame me for him and tell me how i destroyed everything...because i side him they wont even take me to a doctor...some time back due to my periods i had a lump which opened up and was continously bleeding...they woudnt take me to a doc, saying that it was a shame to them that i have it and it coz im dirty, i have my bath twice daily..they wont let me go out with my friends...i was in house arrest for the past two years since we married...they tell me im the reason they have a bad life..that im the reason why they dont have peace...i dont have anybody...god will be angry with me if i killed myself...i knw he loves me even if nbdy else does...that he will sometime bring something good into my life...that the only thing keeping me alive...my parent and him...both blame eachother for evrything about me...nobody wants to take my responsibility...to my parents i should be like my younger sis, i tell them evrything truthfully, thats why they think i am dirty, but she hides everything she does and become the best daughter...i dont want to be her... i cant cheat anybody...what should i do??? i cant go for counselling...

Try this
 
 
See if it can help you.  It has helped others on this site. 
 
You are fighting an uphill battle.  You have to learn to love and accept yourself for who you are.  You have to disregard what other people say especially when they are saying that you are the blame for everything and that you are not a good person.  Let them say what they want.  But you have to learn to not let it get to you.  If you are going to continue with this man, you have to over look what he says too.  Or else you are going to go crazy.  He does not respect you.  It sounds like he doesn't love you either.  If he did, he would be kind to you. 
 
If you have no money, go to the department of social services and get some help.  They should be able to help you to get counseling.  And that is what you need.  If you really want help, you will try. 
 
I hope that he starts treating you better.  I hope that the moodgym helps you.
 
Take care,
 
Hugs, Karen.
 
I just thought of another one http://livelifetothefull.com
 
It is suppose to be a good site.

He is using any excuse to drink. He sounds like he is an alcoholic. But I don't know that for sure. But he can't blame you for his drinking, he does that all on his own. We can say things like thanks to your actions, I am going to drink. But that is just an excuse. Just like you can't blame his drinking for your emotions. You own them. They are yours. I am sure that his drinkings help you feel more depressed, but it isn't the sole issue here. That is you. You have to learn what you want out of life. You most certainly don't deserve the treatment that you let him give to you. I say you let him, because you are letting him run your life. You are a human being, an individual, and you shouldn't be unhappy as you are. You shouldn't have to walk on eggshells or anything else. You should be happy with your life and you aren't. But this is up to you. You have to find your strengths and use them. And you will. You are a good person and things are going to work out. Take this one day at a time. Study the moodgym and see how it helps you. And eventually get yourself into counseling. A counselor will help you find your strengths, and help you gain self confidence and learn your limitations with someone elses actions. You deserve respect. You deserve to be happy. I hope that you can find these things.

Take care,

Hugs, Karen

You are basing everything on the way that he is feeling. What about how you are feeling??? You are strong enough to get out of this situation. Get to counseling. They will guide you better than we can. They are professionals. We are not. We just go by what we read and what we have experienced. He is not treating you right. I wish I could change your title to your thread to "how do I keep myself happy".

Stay strong.

Here is a site that I found, I hope that it helps.  Though I really think he needs to get into anger management counseling.   Or classes.  Only he can do this.  You cannot fix him.  Just so that you know.  You can be there and support him, but you cannot fix him.  It has to come from within himself.
 
 
 
I hope that this helps some.  There are other sites too, just type in anger management sites.  That is all I did.

Quit blaming yourself. If his mood gets spoiled, that is because of him. He has to learn to control his way of thinking. You are not to blame...

Hon-
 
I came on this site because I was feeling super blue not only because of my situation with my husband but he is a big part of it.
 
What did I see but myself 28 years ago- in your post.
 
Please get yourself out of this relationship. I know it will hurt but believe me you will heal and get over it and find someone you deserve.
 
Please do not stay on this path with this person. Before I knew it the children came and then I felt further tied to this man. He has always said that he loved me but his actions don't support that statement. He is often angry and even when his anger is not directed right at me- it affects me. I am absolutely miserable.  He does not hit me but I am a broken woman emotionally. He often calls me an abuser when I stand up for myself. The longer you stay the harder it is to leave. My youngest child is 18 and will soon graduate from HS. Since the kids were little I told myself when the youngest turns 18 I'm gone. But guess what I am scared. Now I also have a health condition that makes me a ticking time bomb of whether or not I will be able to continue working to support myself. I know the hell I am living in but I am afraid of the hell I might have to live in.
 
Please- you are young- get out get out get out!

i cant....if i could i would have times there are times when i feel i don't love him as much as he loves me...sometimes i know it is his inability to show his love or that he feels showing me love will mean that he is surrendering to me and that i'll rule him.,..today he is different person...his real self...he wants me near him, wants to know all what i'm doing...i'm also not a very good person...i irritate him sometimes..its just that i don't do everything wrong as he sees...he would never be ready for counselling...i know that hell be a mess without me...i cant see him like that..there is a pleasure that he gets when he hurts himself through me...sometimes i feel he is punishing himself by doing this to us...he understands everything about me without me saying even on the phone...its just that i bug him to know where he is...coz when i sit at home all what im scared about is if something will happen to him...i just want him safe and i go overboard caring for him..he feels suffocated then...i wish i could go stay with him..and look after him...i know deep inside he is always scared if ill leave him but he'll never show it out...he would rather take the pain of me leaving him than accept that he cant do without me...i feel everything he feels so clearly that nothing is hidden...sometimes i think its because of that he shows such behavior to me...cause i see how weak he can be...however hard he tries to be i always find the little baby in him...its just that now he does not have any control over himself when i care for him...he is not like this when he sees me in person..he is the most caring husband ever...true sometimes when i stand up for myself, he accuses me of abusing and using him for my needs and playing around with him...and he says real dirty things...i just want to find the strength to cope up with that....im doing the program from the website karen had suggested...its just that sometimes the pain is so bad i dont know what to do...i have not done anything bad to anybody..nor has hubby done...he never goes around judging people or doing bad things to them...god will give us a normal life...i dont want it to be happy always..it will never be.. im young but i love him so much that i know that this life won't be enough to love him...i know he loves me the same way...sometimes you most hate the person you love na...maybe its that...i know he loves me...i just want the strength to fight and bring him back...please do pray for me and for hubby....god will surely listen to all of you...he will put things right for us..please do pray for me....

I will keep you in my prayers.
I know you don't see it but you are a very unhappy girl and there is so much more to life.
I have a 26 year old daughter who was in a 4 year relationship with a man who did not make her happy. He had some good points but there were a couple of times I thought he put her in danger and he said things pretty often that made her feel bad about herself. She is a stunning girl with a masters degree and a good heart. I really should put those items in reverse order. It seemed as if it was going in the marriage direction even though they had a couple of fights big enough to split for awhile a couple of times. I have always told my daughter not to take that from a man. I encouraged her to get the kind of education and job so that she would always be able to support herself. I however was an awful role model. I am an awful role model for my sons as well who will probably treat their wives as I have been treated and I hate myself for this.
 
Anyway- I got off track.
 
My daughter finally had it and broke it off for good with this guy. Even tho she was the one to initiate it she was very upset about it. Her heart was broken.  My heart broke for her. We cried together on the phone. I was her lifeline for a good piece. You see his friends were her friends...all guys and her girlfriends kind of got left in the background.
We discussed that she really had not been happy at all those 4 years but that she was just in a "comfort" zone with this guy.
 
The good news is- she was so over that guy a lot quicker than anyone would have expected! Yes she hurt- but she healed completely.
 
I can see the same thing happening for you.
 
I truly wish you all the best.

I am so happy that things are going well for you and your hubby right now. I hope that it continues.

We are so happy to be able to support you during this time.

I just want you to remember that you aren't responsible for somebody elses happiness. Though it is a nice thought that you are trying to keep him happy. But know that it is not your responsibility.

Best wishes to you.

Hugs, Karen
