Hi Doglover – SO pleased for you and SO proud of you for getting this far – not long to go now!!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

It must be do hard on you – knowing that you are leaving and yet trying to keep things as ‘normal’ as possible – so he will not suspect anything.

The thing is at the end of the day the bond between a mother and child is always there – and your husband is not the father of your son, and so he will never really understand the mother/son bond you have – a mothers love is unconditional – always and forever…….

Yes your husband will be getting annoyed with you as you are no longer doing what he wants all the time – you are no longer doing as he says – its hard on you – you are being very brave doing this but at the same time you don’t want to arrouse his suspitions that ‘something is up’ – maybe best to try and ‘keep the peace’ if possible, just ’til you are away and safe.

Yes it is a scary thought, being on your own, and the will be good times and bad times – things will crop up and you will think you can’t cope – but you are strong – you have got this far – you can, and will do it.
The freedom is SO worth it – being able to do whatever you want – whenever you want- after coming out of an abusive relationship – there is no feeling like FREEDOM!!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Will he/has he not noticed that things are disappearing from the house?

Does your son know you have a flat and are leaving in 3 weeks?? Can you trust him not to say a word?

You seem really upbeat and positive, I’m please to see you so happy keep us in touch with how you are doing.

Good luck. πŸ™‚ x*x. πŸ™‚
