    It's time to start facing the facts here Amy.
    You deserve a lot better than what this guy is offering you. You sound like a great mother and a caring, nurturing partner. He doesn't deserve you and he never will.

    You want to do what's best for you and your daughter? Walk away.

      Amy, I'm NOT sure you deserve better than what you have if you're so willing to be a doormat. You allowed someone you barely knew to move in with you, and then you allowed him to take advantage of you on many levels. You are reaping the results of your poor choices.

      If you don't like the situation you've put yourself in, then I suggest that you give him a deadline to move out of your place. If he causes a commotion, then serve him an official eviction notice. If you're renting the place, does the landlord know you've moved all these people in?

        Amyx2: You've done a pretty good job narrating your story and you already have your own thoughts and feelings. I'm curious - what do you want to do?

          I didn't fiinish reading, you need to kick them all out if your life, NOW. His kids are not your responsibility. You shouldn't be taking care of them, paying for them or being bullied by him to pick them up from school. They are all taking advantage of you and massively disrespecting you. Your only responsibility is your daughter. Keep her safe. Get rid of that disrespectful asshole and his minions.

          I say it as I see it. Don't take it personally!

            amyamy Yes, you should leave your partner from hell. Your child and you are top priority.

              Tell him to take his children and GET OUT and do it when you have a strong male role model with you. Either a male friend, a male relative or the police.

              You have to make sure you are providing for your daughter in her future and this asshole you've hooked your star to is just going to be the evil "step mother" and his children the "cruel stepdaughters" to your daughter's "Cinderella."

              Do SOMETHING now.

                I am so sorry. This sounds very stressful and overwhelming. Have you done counseling? You mentioned depression and I hope you have someone to work with on that. That person can also give you guidance on your next steps. You deserve happiness and peace
