Hi doctor,

My husband abused me emotionally and physically for five years. He feels very low, sad and feels negative towards everything. He has self-pity. It happens for a few days to few weeks. After that, he starts having anger. Finding fault in everything especially in me. He has the habit of doing emotional abuse which again goes on for a few days. On following it, he becomes aggressive and then there is physical abuse too. Then, he becomes ordinary. He is a very loving, and a caring spouse. He is dependent on me. Then again the whole thing gets repeated. What is happening to him? He had taken Fluoxetine for eight months before 15 years.
