Dr.Schwartz my husband wants to leave me because I am to too fat and because we don't have intercourse anymore because of my weight. He always puts me down saying that he's too young and that if I think he won't find somebody out there that would have good intercourse with him that I am wrong. He tells me nobody is going to love me cause I'm too big. Another thing till this point is we don't have children of our own due that I'm so big that all I want to do is sleep all day and eat an go back to lying down and I cry a lot because I wish to be skinny and be able to have children with him because that's what he wants in order for him not to leave me. He tells me that I 'am lazy and that I don't make enough money. He is always telling me to go walk, for me not eat to much cause I'm going to get more big. You know Dr.Schwartz I cook for him and I always make sure he has his lunch ready before he walks out the door to work. I try my best to do for him I just don't know what I would do alone. I'm not from here, I don't have relatives in this city and I think I'm lonely. I can hear my family saying we knew he didn't love you and I forgot he doesn't go with me anywhere because what would the people say about him. It's been 7 yrs that I have been married to him and I am hurt. I always have to be lying that he loves me to my mom & dad and I always say he is very nice and treats me very good.. Thank You
