I am in the same situation as you. He has overstayed his welcome. We have been married for I think 24 years. He has always had somewhat of a temper. The past few years it got much worse. he even was in a psych hospital for a week. I can't work unless I really find something from home. He has calmed down some because I am all over his a&^ if he even raises his voice. I am not ashamed, he is a fool. I have a 16 yr. old son too . He knows it is wrong. But he has some of that temper. I have NO where to go. I will not give up my home. I have no problems calling the police. I am glad you are going o your grandmas's. If you need/want a call please send me Grandma's number. Rklein3@nycap.rr.com I have unlimited longdistance. I have been through lots of therapy. If you need to vent I will keep my mouth shut. I am here. hugs,
I have been in your shoes, so I know how difficult it is. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Visiting your Grandmother is a wonderful idea!! Be good to yourself. I left after 15 years. It was the best thing I could have done for my son and me. And I met the love of my life who I am still with after 29 years. Be strong. Things will get better for you.
I have to admit that I have not been in your shoes. Just remember that you come first; you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else. You will be in my thought and prayers. You can make it through this. Kathy

Enjoy the time with your Grandmother. You know, moms and grandmoms are like that, they always seem to be pushing food at you, it their answer to all of life's problems!lol. (I was like that myself!) But you need time away. No one deserves to be abused either physically or verbally, we are worth much more than that. But have a good visit and you are in my prayers.

Yes darlin', I have already prayed! I understand needing to get away from a verbally abusive man ... did that myself last year. One of the best decisions I ever made. May you find peace and answers ... and stick with your healthy eating decisions.

I will be thinking of you constantly.. Please know that you are not alone.. We will all be here for you.
I have walked in your shoes. I hope that you will finally take the time to work on you. Do not let your husband even try to convince you to come back.. IT WILL NOT WORK.. You can do this I know that you can. If you can find a DV program close please see about going to a SUPPORT GROUP MEETING. You don't have to talk, just listen.. you will see that you are not alone.
You will also see that once you are rid of the violence in your life the weight will come off..
Keep us posted when you are able.
Remember to say I LOVE YOU. Just three words that mean so much.
Good luck to you. I've been where you are. Took me far too long to love myself first and stop letting my former husband bully me and make me miserable.
And both my Southern G-ma's LOVED to feed us. That was always the first and last thing they wanted to do whenever we would visit. Take all the time you need and gather as much strength and love that she can give to you.
Try helping her prepare the foods while your there. That way maybe you can convince her to add or delete items to make it healthier. Easier said than done I know! My mother refuses to use anything but real butter, whole milk, etc. in everything she makes. It's kind of like eating at Paula Deen's house!
Be tolerant of the human race. Your whole family belongs to it -- and some of your spouse's family does too.
Most people are more comfortable with old problems than with new solutions.
I am going to spend the next few days at my grandmother's house, so I won't be able to log on. Grandma doesn't have the interweb...LOL I am having some very personal problems with a verbally abusive husband and I am still trying to keep my head above water with no job at the moment. Grandma gives me great advice and love, but she also is a Texas woman who believes that you have to be fed to be happy. So could someone pray for me that I resist temptation and that I can weather this storm I call a life. Thankyou all so much. I have been here two days and I feel like I have somewhere to go to just talk and get a leg up on this weight issue. My prayers are with everyone here going through a simular struggle or any struggle at all for that matter. Wish me luck.
