This is my first time to this site although I spend a lot of time on the depression DS site. I'm 47 and have had PTSD for about twenty years. The abuse I went through was so horrible that everything in my environment including my 13 year old son, are triggers for me. I spend a lot in time in bed and am always battling depression, food addiction, anxiety, and PTSD. But now I have to face my abuser YET AGAIN as he is coming with his wife next weekend to see our new house that he helped us buy. The thing is, although he claims to want to help and has bought me a car, pays for my son's private school, has paid off our credit cards many times, etc. etc., I still can't deal with this man. I am desparately afraid of him and of what he can do and of what he has done to me. Yes I let him help us buy these things but only because I am disabled and could not buy them for us. It was a hard decision but I have been accepting my dad's "help" for many years now. How do I get through this? My husband says I don't have to be here when he comes but I dont' really know where I would go. I feel like a lost little child. Thanks for listening. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
