| | Name-calling
My husband and I have only been married since last October. Lately he's been calling me names such as dumbass, freakshow, ding dong etc.
I was going to school at the time we met and was studying for a career in IT, I've been working towards getting this specific job at a data center that began operations 2 years ago. I have an interview with them next week.
I quit school in Dec 2007 because he said I could stay home and take care of the house and the kids and not worry about work because he wanted me to work with him in his business but he never took the time to show me what to do. He used to put some money into my bank account but I think he is cutting me off.
Since leaving school, I've been feeling unfulfilled, I've always been independant and confident. Now I am depressed, my self-esteem is really low. Sometimes I don't even want to come home. I clean both my dad's house and our huge house and taking care of the kids drains me. I have to go back to work because he is now complaining about money. I've been helping my dad but in the last 3 weeks he's not been in good health and had to be hospitalized with heart failure, I never got a hug or words of support from my husband until I demanded it.
I am tired of this name-calling, I have to get myself back to my old confident self to prepare for this interview. I'm finding it hard because I want to cry every day.
