Customer Question
My husband call me...

My husband call me a bitch, he did it today. I told him under no circumstances do you have the right to call a woman a bitch. He also tells me that I am miserable. Everytime he starts a fight.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No, I have not seen a doctor. I am taking diabetic medications and high blood pressure only

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

My A-1c are getting any better I eat emotionally

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

A long time ago he pushed me and hit me

Hi, thank you for writing to us. I am sorry to hear you had this altercation with your husband and absolutely agree that he does not have the right to talk to you like this. Such language is abusive, and it sounds like there was some f\physical abuse in the past. I am super proud of you for standing your ground and letting him know how this treatment makes you feel and that is is unacceptable. How can I best support you today?

Should I tell him to get professional help or leave?

No cannot afford it

This is so tough. If this is a repeating pattern or you feel like your marriage is not in a good/happy place, then you may want to propose some couples counseling so you can work on these things as a team. Perhaps he would be willing to engage in help if you tackled it from the approach of bettering your marriage in general including improving your communication and lessening his anger and aggression. If you feel strongly these issues reflect on him alone and less on your marriage, then certainly, demand he get some help and explain to him how you are feeling with good examples of times when you felt his behavior was out of control or inappropriate. Hopefully, he will have enough insight and consideration for you and your marriage that he will take your concerns seriously and agree to some form of support, either by himself or with you as a couple.

And, I totally understand the dilemma about not being easily able to leave. This is one reason out of many that marriage can be worth fighting for, although under no circumstances do you deserve to experience ANY level of abuse. Hopefully he gets this!

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
