I'm moving across the world in a few weeks to be with my abusive boyfriend. We were going through the "honeymoon" stage at the time. Anyway, he's been at it again with is abusive tactics.(no surprise, I should've known by now it would return!) I was really upset, needless to say. I can't imagine flying on a plane for 24hrs to be with him and having this horrible pit in my stomach. So I took the time to send him a heartfelt e-mail. I was very careful with my words. I felt like he needed to know how I feel and perhaps he would attempt to work things out before I go. When I talked to him on the phone, I asked him what he thought of my e-mail. He said that he read the first few sentences and stopped reading it. He said he's going through alot of stress at the moment with his career and he doesn't want anymore stress. He thinks that I should be more considerate of his feelings when he is going through a stressful time. This just killed me inside. What about my feelings and my stress?! My stress and anxiety is because of him! I don't know how I am supposed to support him with his stress when he won't even acknowledge mine? I feel so terrible right now. :-(

Long story short, the abuse was subtle but constant. He...
