My husband is a disabled veteran with severe PTSD and TBI. He has become unbearable to live with my children and I. He has serious bouts of hostility, talks so nasty to myself and my children, and has become extrememly paranoid with dooms day type feelings. He's been receiving mental health treatment and they are now talking about him needing inpatient treatment which he is refusi, and I've been supporting him and trying to help him get better for himself and for our family for a very LONG time. I don't want to give up, but I don't know if I can take anymore. We're not intimate anymore and my kids are obviously being affected by this behavior. I feel bad for the things my husband has had to see and deal with at war, and I love him and I am so proud of his service he has given to our country, but I don't know how much longer I can keep trying to stay together. How much longer would you try to hold onto a relationship like thsAnswer Question

If it was just me in the house with him, then I would try and stick it out. He did a great service for his country and I would want to give back to him as much as I could.
BUT there are kids in the house and they are being verbally abused. That is not okay for any reason.
I was a kid in a house like that and I have to say it sucked. Never knowing what was going to set my dad off was hard on my siblings and I.
I agree with KTMOM. Lay it all out there. "You have the oppurtunity to get help, if you choose not to I will no longer be a party to your misery."
You can't help those that don't help themselves.
