Hey Everyone, I stumbled across this website and signed up...I am in an emotionally abusive relationship with my husband of almost one year. I called off the first wedding about 3 months before the date because my fiance was being really mean and didn't seem to care about what was important to me (that's the shortened version)....but we went to counseling together and he seemed somewhat willing to change but would twist what the counselor said or say she was just being sexist and taking my side, etc. We stopped going and got married a year later in July 2007. It's almost been a year and there has been good times, but my husband is very controlling and emotionally abusive and it got so bad i started having panic attacks and hitting myself and everything because I always felt so bad for not pleasing him and screwing up again, etc. I've been seeing a psychologist now for about 6 months and have come to the conclusion that I am not happy. I started seeing a psychologist and am on anti- depressants and anti-anxiety meds. I am finally realizing the situation I am in....and told my husband he needs to make a change in how he treats me or else I'm out because I can't take it any longer. My husband made an appointment on thursday with a counselor to go to on his own. I am thrilled that he is seeking help but not expecting miracles.....anyone know how difficult it is for someone who is emotionally abusive to stop? Is there hope or am I just running around in circles? I just want to give this the best chance I can.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
