Our expert says:
What a sad story, and how much you have had to cope with, from a young age. You have had horrible experiences of abuse and neglect. What you really do need and deserve, is to see a good psychologist / counsellor, to help you work through all that has happened to you and especially the unhelpful ways you are sometimes reacting to it, so you can free yourself from unpleasant effects of what happened, and free to enjoy yourself and your marriage. And yes, some joint sessions with your husband and the counsellor would be useful, too. Check with Lifeline, Depression/Anxiety Support Group and FAMSA, maybe even POWA, to find an affordable and experienced counsellor you can reach
