It has taken me years to finally wake up and see that my husband has been keeping me prisoner in my own home. together for 9 years. I didn't see that he was and keeps me from having friends, jobs, going out, not even letting me visit a downstairs neighbor! "Because she smokes!" I never did anything and then got pregnant, perfect! That is when my depression got worse. He puts down any friend I have. The more I saw the excuses the more I get angry at me. He even pretends to "act sick" when I'm going out. Which in the years 3 times or so,(just w/ friend). Some of it has to do with him cheating too, found out 3 years ago. It used to be excuse after excuse. Now its weird he offers so I can go out by myself to take photos! And now his guilt is setting in, he puts down my friends a lot, he picks out all my faults, we rarely fight. Lately we are and he threatened to hit me again. No contact yet and I dare him and stand up for that BS. The more I realize the more I get pissed. After, we finally went to places in the area (after)living here for 8 years. Now after major suck up time! Like a kids indoor park, never been and our son is 7! It hits me more every time we go somewhere new. Has any other women gone through this?? How did you take a stand? I was a loner and never learned how to stick up for myself. Thank you all for your replies. hugs
