    My father in law passed away in November 2018 and my husband has been having a hard time, which is understandable. However, lately all his anger is being pushed on me. If something goes missing it’s my fault, if something doesn’t go as planned it’s my fault etc... I’m finding it hard to deal with being the blame and don’t know how I can help him through this period as he won’t let me in and just expects me to know what’s going on. I’m so emotional over it I can’t even focus in work and dread going home because I don’t know what I will be blamed for next
