Mental illness

I have been going through a lot of abusing by my partner which has put me emotionally and mentally down. He does that when ever he gets angry and he even slapped me once. Abusing on my character, my parents character, and many of my personal and sensitive stuff. It has created a lot of negative impact on me. I have stopped communicating with people. Lost appetite and I cry over everything and get hyper for simple things. I feel worthless in life and I feel like ending this life when I hear more of abuses and these abuses keep disturbing me every now and then. I lost interest in everything and don't want to do anything life. And prefer staying alone. Can some one advise if this is depression and what needs to be done for this?

Hello,

What you're going through is understandable. There ofcourse is alot or trauma that comes with abuse and violence with multiple other issues. Your helplessness and frustration is understandable. There are ways out of what you are feeling. Take support of your family, friends and we'll wishers. It's recommended that you take immediate help from a trained psychotherapist near you. If there is none in your area, you can take help from someone who does therapy online. Please feel free to get in touch personally and someone from my office will guide you to a good therapist near you.

Hello dear, despite all that is happening around you, what you need to know is, you as a life partner and an individual have your own identity, expectations & emotions. Do not let these things pull you away from what you are. Do not stop valuing yourself or internalizing all that your partner tells you and start believing in all that is told to you. Appreciate yourself for what you are. Have a daily routine(walk, exercise, hobby, prayer, social outings, chatting with friends etc amongst many others. Do not build a wall around you rather strengthen your support system(family, friends, colleagues). Start working professionally if possible and if not already doing so to become financially independent, even if it's only taking English or painting classes for kids around your house.
Realize and assert your self worth. Then seek professional help in form of marital counseling along with your spouse. Convince him by telling that this is important for the relationship, that both need to know the areas & ways in which you need to improve. Your requirement for medication will be assessed by the psychiatrist when you go there for marriage counseling. Hope this helps, good luck!

Sometimes some of ur own behaviours could have caused some of these behaviours in your Husband. ?? Hence do consult a Psychologist in your city and have a clarity about your and your future.
