I saw my Woman Aid worker yesterday, and we both felt I didn’t need regular meetings any more, though I can contact her at any time.
What a year its been, from unable to make a decision, like a frighten rabbit caught in the headlights, not even being able to choose where to sit in a cafe. Then I knew what to do but was to scared to do it without reassurance, then I do it then ask for reassurance, now I just do it.
I over heard my mother today say “I’ve got my old daughter back”. I look in the mirror when I got home and I saw a much stronger woman.
I still have a long way to go, and I need to sale the house so I can have no contact, but I nearly there.
This site and the feed back has been the more support and help I can ever express.
To you on the beginning of the journey, all I can say its worth it.
Off out in a minute to a fg for a meal, film and a glass or two of wine. Something I wouldn’t have been able to do in the past.

Had lovely evening.
Abuser was a nod tonight sadly so was our son, but I expect that was because I was out last night.
But just let it goes over my head.

Fallingskys, thank you so much for this post. I feel similar to how you are and I’m at the early stages of regaining my life and making my own destiny. Its been less than a month of no contact, at first I felt really overwhelmed but now I’m starting to starting to see the positives a lot more.

Whid so glad that you are getting more positives in your life. In one way ut taking a time to sale the house has given me time to see what an awful person I have spent most of my life with.
Here’s to the day I get my own place 😁
