Dear Abby: I am writing this with overwhelming sadness. My 75-year-old husband is a tyrant. Our neighbors hate him and so do our children. He is an overbearing, impetuous child.

I cry every day. I can’t talk to him without him yelling. I am a subservient person. How do I go on with this? He is very healthy. I try so hard and I have no life. He says mean things to me all the time. Please give me some advice. — Floundering In Florida
