Partner has intermittent explosive disorder, verbally oppressive
Ever take a trip with someone who exhibits road rage? Just the thought of driving somewhere with my partner causes my stomach to hurt. If the insurance payment withdrawn from our checking account is wrong he starts screaming and cursing. I try to stay calm, never engaging in elevated reactions but that doesn’t seem to help. He has never become violent, just verbal but that has become oppressive. I know his family has a history of abuse. I am entering into some serious depression because of the situation . I know I should probably leave but pets and the thought of bankruptcy are keeping me here.
