Things have been very rocky since he found out I went back to my ex. We've stayed together but things have been difficult. Most days he is fine, but some days something just clicks in his head and turns on me.
He calls me horrible names, screams and shouts. He says he's thought about stabbing me in the head and killing me. They are just thoughts. Last week whilst out in his car he started acting psychotic. He threw food at me and started speeding down a road saying he was going kill us both. He also said he's thought about driving us off a local bridge.
I know what I did was very wrong, technically we wasn't in a relationship. But this is not an excuse. I take full responsibility for my actions, he's even said he's forgiven me but can't forget it.
He can't sleep properly and is having nightmares of me leaving him. I've offered help and advised we go to relationship counselling. How can I help him if he can't help himself? It's easier to walk away but I'm prepared to make up for all the hurt I've put him through. I've stayed with him through this violence. But should I stay now that he's threatened my life?
Any mental health facility would admit him for evaluation.
Please distance yourself from him unless he gets help!!
This is not about what YOU have done. He's having a breakdown because of a multitude of problems.
Then, with any significant improvement, you can up the ante to meeting in a very public, very safe place during the daytime.
And so on...
