It has been almost a year since I left my husband and filed for a divorce. I had put up with his verbal abuse for 42 years. And the last straw was when he yelled at oue 11 year old grandson. He'd been seeing a psychiatrist for his anger issues but stopped going as he complained that the medicine had him dizzy. He felt there was nothing wrong with him or his behavior. I just couldn't take it anymore. If things didn't go the way he thought they should, he'd break out into a tirade. Also he'd started hanging out with street people-three different women. He told friends that I had cancer and that was why I didn't go to events with him. (I am cancer free for eleven years.) The reason I didn't attend functions with him as we would go and he would spend all his time with other people and leave me sitting alone.
At one point, he put up a large sheet of paper on the back room's door, and told me to write down where i was, when I left and when I expected to be back. All well and good if he did it too. But no, I didn't know he had taken off unless I looked out and his car was gone.
So I hated to leave but I could see no other choice. Plus my doctor told me that sometime the verbal abuse would turn physical. And I have too much self respect for that to occur.

Anyone out there had the same experience?
