i wish he'd hit me

I wish he would hit me, instead of filling my head with these words every minute of every day, why won't he hit me if i'm so 'disgusting' and a 'liar' i don't understand.
I don't know how to react in the best way, how do you react do you argue, defend yourself, cry or just say nothing and take it?
None of the above work it doesn't matter what i do or what i say i never win everything's always my fault.
i don't want this life anymore, but i don't know where to get courage from, my will power left me the minute i threw my 8 stone weight loss down the drain by gaining it all back from this horrible life i'm living this past year.
I used to have anxiety but i don't even think i have it anymore because i don't have time to think about it to make me panic. I would rather be riddled with panic attacks knowing i can fight back than fight this losing battle of trying to help someone's mental health when all they do is target you.

Are you making plans to leave him?

I would react by leaving! He's got your head in such as mess that you want to be hit so you have a reason to leave? The rest of his behaviour is reason enough to leave. Stop thinking about his mh and start thinking of yours! Nothing you do is ever going to change him. The only thing you can do is regain your own life. And that means leave. Asap.

i've had the plans to leave in my head for at least 6 months i just don't know how to do it, i can't physically walk out of that door i just can't do it and i really don't know why!

Going by your OP there are plenty of reasons to leave this relationship. You don’t need any more. Perhaps look at doing the freedom programme www.freedomprogramme.co.uk/ as a way to clear your head of the nonsense he has filled it with and find a way forward to a healthier future.

Sounds like emotional abuse to me ... you should get help.

Shplot Tue 13-Aug-19 15:24:57

Walk away. Right now. Go to family or friends.

Tonnerre Tue 13-Aug-19 15:39:35

Phone Women's Aid and get the help you need to leave him.

CassettesAreCool Tue 13-Aug-19 15:48:47

Walk to the door. Open it. Walk through it. Carry on walking. Don't look back. Leave no explanation. These six steps sound tiny to many but to you they are huge, as you have been abused to the point where you think you can't do them. But YOU CAN.

but he won't let me go and if i do it won't be the end sad

stophurtingme3 Tue 13-Aug-19 15:58:05

or if it does end it will only be because he's no longer in the world

Shplot Tue 13-Aug-19 16:01:15

He has bullied and manipulated you into thinking he won’t let you go.
Wait until he’s out or asleep and go to friends or family. Ring the police if he shows up and women’s aid for advice

cansmellfreedom Tue 13-Aug-19 16:16:46

Posting here is the first step as you do realise that things are bad.Do you have kids? Do you work? Call the police next time he calls you names .start making plans to leave or contact women’s aid.

GreenFingersWouldBeHandy Tue 13-Aug-19 16:30:19

but he won't let me go

It's not bloody up to him! You do not need his permission to leave.

He's got you so ground down it sounds as though he has sucked the life-force out of you.

You've taken the first step by posting on here and you will receive loads of support from women who have been exactly where you are, and who have come out of the other side.

It is possible. And yes, it is scary. But it is real and this is no way to live your life.

Please talk to someone in real life. Speak to a friend. A family member. Your GP. But please talk to SOMEONE.

Bananalanacake Tue 13-Aug-19 16:37:34

is it his house or yours. do you have a friend you could go to after work so you don't have to tell him you've left. can you leave your important documents at work or with a friend to look after.

HappyHammy Tue 13-Aug-19 16:39:50

What do you mean he wont let you go, he cant keep you locked up.

Horehound Tue 13-Aug-19 16:43:16

You don't need a reason to leave anyone. You can just be like "no, this is not for me" and go.
He can't keep you, he doesn't own you.

And have a think about this: if he says you're so terrible, why wouldn't he let you go?

IamHyouweegobshite Tue 13-Aug-19 16:49:35

Is there anyone irl that you can speak to? A friend, family member who can help you get away? Pls contact women's aid. You need to get away from him. Good luck op, keep posting if you can. flowers

CassettesAreCool Tue 13-Aug-19 16:54:22

OK OP I hear you. If you honestly believe that he physically won't let you go, or that he will kill himself if you do go (which is how I interpret your second reply) then what you have is a coercive control situation. Can you find a way to talk to a friend or family member or GP or social worker? Can you call Woman's Aid? If you can find your voice with some other person, I believe you may start finding the means to leave.

get in touch with your local branch of womans aid immediately. its not about him now.its about you.you are worth it.

Tighnabruaich Tue 13-Aug-19 17:11:32

How can he stop you?

HappyNOTdriving Tue 13-Aug-19 17:13:04

He is hitting you!

He battering your emotional self black and blue and stamping on your soul! The only difference is you can't see the bruises so you are convincing yourself it isn't happening.

He is ignoring your shell (your body) but he is hurting you. And he is ignoring it because he doesn't need to hurt it because so far damaging you like he is has worked well for him.

You deserve better my lovely you really really do.

C0untDucku1a Tue 13-Aug-19 17:15:23

He is a liar and an abuser.walk out the door now. Say you are going to the ‘shops’. Go to a feiend or family and tell them.

StrongerThanIThought76 Tue 13-Aug-19 17:25:14

If he did hit you what would you do?

Think about it - would it be the trigger you need to just go? Would it be the beginning of the end, ducks in a row time? Would it be time to call the police to report domestic violence?

All of his behaviour is abuse op - you don't need any sort of trigger. I've been where you are and it took me 5 years to pluck up the courage to move out. 10 years later and I'm sure one of my parents thinks it couldn't have been that bad as he never hit me.
