Default An end to strife in my family

My husband is screwing me (pls excuse) on the divorce, last minute. My parents may be involved.

I found out that being beaten with a fire poker as a child (as my father was) can cause 1., seizures and if not that then spasms and 2. Post-traumatic stress Disorder, anxiety, a panic disorder, and other disorders, so I sent my father an e-mail, for which I am afraid to go to sleep for fear of his raping me in my sleep, I realized he does this, whether consciously or not I don't know, I feel compelled to lay down, pass into oblivion, and wake up in pain, fear, anger, exhaustion, barely able to move a muscle. That's his reaction when you're nice to him. Similar to my husband--his reasons I don't know other than that his father fought in WWII.

Afraid to go to sleep but have to talk to the lawyer tomorrow and maybe get on a plane asap. Supposed to be talking to Catholic Charities here about safe housing and Project Rachel.

Everything was looking up, I thought, but as usual he (my husband), my mother and my father get together to screw me. They made a pact years ago and just won't give it up. My doctor back then warned me about it. They just can't let go and you can't tell them that. My husband found financial profit from this situation. He can't give me back my babies and he can't unharm my son but at least he could just let this go. But no.

I know this is ugly but that's the point, it is, everything was supposed to be just peachy--he's been play-acting for months.

And the psychologist I talk so much about (hoping against hope, taking it on faith) took a two-week vacation the moment I left town after promising to be around if I still needed him.

Feeling generally betrayed, worse. I don't even know if I can trust my son, my mother has him under her control.

Default Re: An end to strife in my family

I am truly sorry for all of the problems you're going through. I know what it's like to have these kinds of family problems, and I know that no one should have to endure what you are right now. This is probably a futile request, but I ask for you to try your absolute best to get away from those in your family who are hurting you. I know this may be impossible, and I know you may think you can change them or fix them if you try hard enough, but you don't deserve to be treated like this. I'm not recommending divorce (as I Catholic I could not in good conscience do this), but if you could separate from your husband or even ascertain an annulment, you really need to. This is causing you such deep damage that is undeserved so far as I can tell.

I hope and pray that you can get out of your situation, that the wounds your family has inflicted on you can heal and that you can overcome whatever prevents you from getting out of these problems. I also pray that your family will see the terrible sin of their actions against a member of their own family, that they will repent and come to live in the beautiful light of God's love and truth, treating you how you deserve to be treated, both as a family member and a human being made in the image of God. I pray for your protection from all sin and all evil, as well as from all mental and physical affliction, and I pray for the forgiveness of all your sins and the sins of those in your family.

I ask the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, your guardian angel, St. Michael, and St. Eugene de Mazenod, patron saint of dysfunctional families. Also, if you ever need to talk privately, feel free to PM me on these boards. God bless.

Hail Mary
Full of Grace
The Lord is With Thee,
Blessed Art Thou Among Women
And Blessed is the Fruit of thy Womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for Us Sinners
Now, and at the Hour of Our Death
Amen.
