My violent partner has turned my life into a blur of depression and pain

DEAR DEIDRE: I THOUGHT my new partner was brilliant but then he got violent and aggressive.

My life now is just a blur of depression and pain.

His childhood was awful.

He grew up in care homes and suffered abuse.

I feel sorry for him.

The way he is now is not his fault.

He’s 29 and I’m 24.

All my money gets wasted on drink or drugs and he’s not worked in two years.

I'm too scared to say what I really think to him.

I wish I could just walk away but he’s threatened to kill me if I try to leave.

In any case, I couldn’t handle the guilt because he has no one but me to rely on.

DEIDRE SAYS: Nothing justifies his violence.

He had a hard childhood, which is very sad, but he needs to seek help.

Whatever he has been through, it isn’t your fault and you can’t make it right for him.

He is angry and you need to leave.
