I'm 28, I've been with my husband (61) for 9 1/2 years, married for 8 1/2 years. We have 2 kids, a 6 year old daughter and a 3 year old son, both have ADHD and alot of behavior problems. My husband has 12 older kids, I know 5 of them and 4 have been in jail and they all have serious attitude issues. When I first met him I believed what he said when he told me that was because their mom let them get away with anything, but now I see that it's because of his attitude and their mom just gave up fighting.
He disrespects everyone, he thinks people should kiss the ground he walks on, he's a compulsive liar, and I'm just tired of being treated like trash and when he bothers to try to help with the kids, all he does is make things worse. I have to get out of here, if it was just me, I could deal with it, but the way he acts is affecting our kids now and it has to stop.
The problem I have is that I don't have a job, I have been a stay at home mom since my daughter was born. And if I do manage to find a job while i'm still with him, he will just stop buying the diapers and things that he usually gets so I will have to get them and won't be able to save anything to leave with. He is on social security dissability, so the kids and I each get a dependancy check, total of $810 a month, but lot rent and house payment is $500 a month, so I guess I'm trying to figure out what is out there that can help me until I can get a steady job and get on my feet. I'm in Ohio by the way, so if anybody has any experience with this in Ohio I would really appreciate any advice you could give me.
The other problem that I am having is that I have never gotten my license, and I don't have a car. In a bigger city i could take a bus or taxi, but i live in a very small town that doesn't have any public transportation. Again, if anybody has any advice, I would really appreciate it.
