I just joined this site today. Like many, I am facing a divorce and am just really sad and unsure how to move forward with my life. I've been in a mentally abusive relationship/marriage for fourteen years now and I've had enough, I just can't do it anymore. My husband is from Iran, plus he's 20 years older than I am. He's very manipulitive and turns everything around. We have a nine year old child that I have stayed in the relationship this long because of my son. In the past couple of years is when it got so bad that now there are no more happy or good days. I am so numb and I just go through the motions of everyday life with no feelings at all. I wish I could just meet people I could talk with and who could re-assure me that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. My husband is so over powering and over bearing that I'm so afraid of him even though he's never hit me it's the emotional abuse that has made me afraid. I've lost most of my friends becasue he is so controlling. I feel so trapped becasue of my son and doing whats right for him. I'm not sure what I'm looking for from this site. Each day I wish that if I could just meet someone could just sweep me away from all this!!
