Hi, I'm new to this and not sure where to go or what Im doing. But I need advice so bad. Im a 47 year old disable female after a hit and run 7 years ago. Im dealing with a husband that constantly is yelling, complaining even punches the bird cage. If he is off of work he just lays on the couch. I've tried to say just good morning and the yelling starts. I therefore just stay in my room and pray he will go to work so I can come out but he will start yelling and cussing anyway. What do I Do? Where can I get all kinds of help. Thanks to anyone that can give me advice

I think it would be useful to speak to Women's Aid? The number is 0808 2000 247.

I agree that you need outside intervention and it sounds like you need it pretty urgently. You shouldn't have to live in fear. Please call Womens Aid and get their advice

Keeping posting on here if you can - we will support you.

It might be a good idea to PM the OP too, if she's not too familiar with mumsnet she might find finding PM's easier

I have a feeling that the OP is not in the UK, so a contact number for Womens Aid may not be useful. The language used sounds North American to me.

OP, are you receiving any ongoing medical treatment?

Are there any health workers who you could confide in? Any visitors to your home who you could speak to in confidence? You are being emotionally abused by this man, and you need to be free of him somehow.

Thank you all so much for listening to me. I am in Florida and not sure where to turn or call. If anyone can please give me advice I would so greatly appreciate it. Sometimes I wish he would just hit me which I know is not good but then I could get rid of him. I think he is suffering from depression and does love me.We live in the same house but it's been months since we have had a conversation without his yelling or punching things.

Try this, OP. It's a list of resources in the Florida area:

Even if he does have depression, it doesn't give the right to abuse you. It's his responsibility to recognise and seek help for it.

Floridi's equivelent helpline would be 1-800-500-1119 (Toll free it says here). I accessed that on www.fcadv.org

If he's unstable due to a mental illness, call an ambulance or call the police. Don't think you have to tolerate abuse.
