I've been a member here for about 8 months now and it has been a lifesaver! My husband of almost 3 yrs is emotionally and physically abusive and has been since before our marriage. I ignored the signs and my gut instincts. He mocks, makes fun, and ridicules me. Discounts my feelings, tells me I'm crazy, and goes out of his way to show me how little I matter. He drinks and picks fights then shoves me or twists my wrists and breaks and kicks things. He says I provoke it all and that I have ruined our marriage. He has no remorse or empathy ever. There is a cycle of abuse but never the apologetic "honeymoon" phase. He is gone now but I can't bring myself to let go totally and file for divorce. He is cruel every time we talk and says he doesn't know if he wants ME back or not. I've been in counseling to help deal with his abuse but he refuses to go for himself. He is on medication for his rage and anxiety. How can I gather the strength to move on? How can I make the final break? I'm really so sad and depressed, I just keep hoping he will come around and change but he never has!
