A few days ago I reported my husband to the police. Things had got unbearable, I told someone and before I knew it I was at the police station. (Detail removed by Moderator) and has gone to stay with his family. There were awful times, but these were when he was drunk and when things were good he was the most amazing husband in the world and we had so much fun. We had no children, so only I was at risk. I can’t stop crying. I think about what he’s doing, how alone he’ll be. I’ve been told he is sorry. I know I can’t go back as there were threats to my family and they know, so they would not accept it. This is so hard, I miss him so much and wish I had just kept quiet. I could have put up with the bad stuff and still had the good stuff. Really don’t know how I’m going to get through christmas.
