My problem is this. I have been in a relationship with a man for 3 years who does not treat me well. He has the tendency of being overly critical and verbally abusive. It's not the verbal abuse which involves name calling, but he criticizes everything I do. He is unpleasant the majority of the time and jealous of my new career. He seems to find ways to make me not trust my judgment, and blames his bad treatment directed towards me on me. Everything seems to be my fault. I want to get out of this relationship, but am having a very difficult time of it. He was once a very charming sweet and kind man, who has turned into this angry and bitter person. When he wants to "punish" me, he will not return my phone calls sometimes for 2 or 3 days, and then when he does, pretends he didn't hear the phone, or get the messages. I become a nervous wreck, and can't concentrate on my new career. Then for a week or two he's sweet again, but it will start up soon thereafter. It is very hard to end a relationship you've put so much time into and start all over. Fear of being alone is a terrible thing.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
