I am a 34 years old woman. I have been married to my husband for 10 years. My husband has the habit of demeaning me in public. He has an ill temper. This really gets me tense because I keep wondering what he will say to me when around a mass. I am afraid that he will get me embarrassed. When I tell him how he embarrasses me, he will only say things to defend himself and keep on telling me how dumb I am. I just get so conscious around him that I can't behave normally. I do not like going out with him anywhere because I know he will make me feel under-confident. I feel helpless.
