I am a mother of two children. One is 12 years old and the other is 10 years old. My husband, who was my only child’s father, died in a car accident one year ago.
Before he died, he was verbally and emotionally abusive to me and our son. He had no respect for anyone but himself. His favorite word was “I.” He would do anything to get his way and would say things like “you are fat” or “your hair looks awful.” I have never felt so depressed in my life as I did when I was married to him.
When he died, I had mixed feelings about it because I hated him but at the same time I didn’t want him dead either because then who would take care of our son if anything happened to me? Also, though he treated me badly, he did love our son very much and always wanted what was best for him so I knew that deep down inside somewhere he wasn’t all bad even though on the outside it seemed like he was just an evil person who wanted nothing more than to make people feel bad about themselves all the time!
My problems started when my husband died; my brother’s wife started calling me up every day at work.
