Thank you, it helps so much that someone is there for support, it means the world to me and i don’t feel as alone. I don’t think he has had a drink tonight although I have been out of his way all night so if he has I haven’t noticed. I would like to stay in the house So I will contact a support worker too and get more of an idea where I stand. I also have dogs so it makes it harder finding places to stay in an emergency, In the past I’ve got my daughter and dogs in the car and driven to a car park to escape him. But I am promising myself I won’t buy him alchohol either, he prob will kick off but like you say when he does I can report it. Thank you so much I am going to be strong and determined, I think that is why he is with me as I am a soft touch, when I stand up to him he says this isn’t like me and I’m acting like my mother and I’m a b***h and all the other names under the sun. I guess this way of life is all I know as I’ve lived it for so long, I just want to be me again. Thank you I will keep you updated xx
