Its One Thing to Call the Devil, Another to See Him Coming
I live with Satan. I also live with a loving, caring man who would do anything for me..except skip a drink or take medication for any "so call reason." When I first met him he concealed the little alchoholic factor...I found that out about 6 months into the relationship. He was at first perfect. Great sexually, still is...only time I like him. We've been together for twelve years and have two children who are afraid for us...my husband and I to be alone because he is physically, verbally, psychologically abusive. He also shows signs of paranoa. I can't go anywhere without being accused of sleeping around. So I started therapy cuz I just lost a close friend and began having panic attacks. I am an artist and I require space to be creative. This man chose to take off the whole month of July. I thought I would loose my mind. ANYTHING CAN TRIGGER A MANIC EPISODE. Once I put too much spinach on his plate. Another time I didn't make enough hamburgers so that he cold have seconds... he ended up taking the whole frying pan and putting it in the garbage. Anything I love,,,he hates,,,my daughter, my dog, my friends, my religion. So why don't I leave? Well as I have said he can be Satan or Zorro. WHen he's good he's golden. He is spontaneous, a pick up and go guy. He protects his family and will do anyhting to make sure we are cared for. H e also appears quite normal and can fix anything, but refuses to do jobs around the house because I threw him out after he choked my nineteen year old after she asked him why did he kick her cat. He has been to AA. Angermanegement and was prescribed Lexapro. He refused to tkae it. I am really running low on tolerance and am wondering if this could ever work.
