My husband's abusive and controlling behaviour is hurting my children

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM on a hellish merry-go-round of emotions where my husband is concerned.

One moment he’s lovely and the next, he’s narcissistic and controlling.

We’ve been through so much even my kids say: “Dad will apologise and you’ll forgive him.”

We’ve been together for 19 years and are both 40.

He exaggerates things, such as how many people I’ve slept with.

He makes out I’m a slut but I’ve only slept with him and one other person.

He sends me texts accusing me of things and won’t let it go until I agree with him.

I’ve lost many friends over the years as he bad-mouths them.

The children often witness his outbursts.

I’ve done research and think he has narcissistic personality disorder.

DEIDRE SAYS: It’s damaging for your children to witness how your husband controls you – and in turn your apparent acceptance.

It won’t be easy to leave after so long but there is support to do this.

My support pack called Abusive Partner will show you where to find help.
