My mom passed away a little less then a year ago. In the years I took care of her I was trying to care for her, raise my child, and stay in a relationship despite the fact my mom hated him beyond words. In that time my mom was raised to pop off at the mouth, a trait she got from her mother. My mom would say mean things to me despite the fact that I gave up working to care for her, I gave up my own home my own life and raised my child around her. Her condition made these pop offs worse for example "I wish I had believed in abortions because you would have been one!" those type of pop offs enough to hurt me and send me into a spiral. Now to my relationship. I love him always have but he hated my mom as much as she hated him and he was not allowed in her home. I felt guilt ridden when I spent time with him because I knew when I got home I was getting yelled at (as a grown adult). Vise versa when I was with my mom too much he would make me feel bad. He cheated on me he even lived with another woman and gave her all the love and affection I deserved. Now I can't get him to be loving with me because he says I did it to myself. I love him I do but now he is just verbally abusive every single chance he gets, he makes comments how I loved my mom more then him. How I didn't give him all my love. I did I never cheated I have only hugged another man once in the time we have been together and that was because the guy found me crying and he was an acquaintance and he wanted to show his support and understanding to me finding out I was cheated on. I haven't moved him in with us because I do not feel I'm emotionally stable in this relationship he has me on pins and needles all the time. I want to scream because he drinks ALOT and he thinks it's okay when he isn't with us he drinks 12-24 beers a night. It makes me sick then he will say it's my fault he drinks. I feel like I went from abuse to abuse. I never do anything for myself for fear someone will get mad at me my mom always did now I'm afraid he will also. I try so hard to get the love from him that he gave the other woman I make elaborate meals, when he is here I do his laundry and I do everything I'm basically a 1950's housewife I just want what he gave her I think I deserve it after staying with him. I found out only a month before my mom passed he lived with the other woman. I'm ashamed of myself for wanting to be loved so bad by him I know I should run but I don't know how . I'm grieving still I also lost my oldest daughter 1 year before my mom was diagnosed. I am a wreak. I tried to seek help but therapist just say leave him they don't try and help me understand why I feel like I do they don't even let me talk about it they change it to how is my relationship with my father. Stupid topics that have nothing to do with why I am there to talk to them. I needed a place to really open up I have brothers but they were never around for our mom they won't be around for me. I tried several times to reach out to them. Sending texts and leaving voicemails asking to talk please and never a text or a call back. I just wish I had people to talk too. My priest says turn to God, I have been since forever ago. I just am at a loss I don't know how to get past what I feel from grieving to my relationship. I guess what makes me really confused is am I thinking he is being abusive because I'm used to being abused or is he is abusing me verbally.
