The church we belong to ignore everything. My husband is both verbally and emotionally abusive and I truly believe is bi-polar and I can get help from no one -- not even the psych doc who is treating him for depression. My husband refuses to be honest about himself -- everything is my fault -- he has the doctor convinced I have bi=polar -- our friends and acquiantances not to mention an incident early this fall at work speak more the truth. Talking to him just causes more arguments and heart ache -- I have given up on our church -- I am ill and have 3 children and currently stay at home -- I pray and pray and read and read ... and feel very forgotten and forsaken. I am told over and over if he doesn't want to help himself. Both of our families are 6-8 hours away. Mine is Christian but give denial a whole new demension -- his family is fed up with his rapid cycling -- it is like that old saying, when she was good she was very, very good, but when she was bad, hide under the couches. There is not physical abuse, though he will destroy things -- but he says he is provked -- my things not the children's -- the older ones (13 and 15 1/2 <-- he is a boy) suffer now from his sarcasm, etc. No one knows what to do and I am just weary and was in a very physically abusive marriage for 10 years before I left -- when I finally did I weighed 90 lbs. at least had my 2 kids and a job, a good one. Does anyone have anything to say other than the platitudes -- I am a true Christian, I know God is in control --I also know that this life on earth is short in comparison to eternity and our hope may be just that and nothing more.

Sad, lonesome, ... 2sense (aka Sue)
