      I was just reading back over my first few posts which I wrote a few years ago.

      The first person that ever responded to me was KIP – and she’s still here, helping out ladies who are just as bewildered as I was when I first began to understand that I was in an abusive relationship.

      I just wanted to say a public thank you to KIP and all the other ladies on the forum who helped me to understand what was happening to me and who have helped me through some of the hardest and darkest of times.

      There are ladies who have had so much more to deal with than I have but you’ve always been here for me regardless as we’ve walked our paths, side by side. Thank you!

      I’m not quite back on my feet yet – it’s a long, slow process, but bit by bit, step by step, I’m getting there.

      I picked up a lovely piece of furniture from freecycle today. It’s gone into storage with all my other stuff, ready for my new house (which I hope to move into soon). I was ridiculously excited. It’s another step along the road to an abuse free life.

      Ladies, Lisa, WA, I am so grateful to you all.

      Thank you. xx

      What a lovely post to read Eggshells. I’m excited for you.

      Thank you too. Helping others helps me in my recovery and turns such a negative experience of abuse into a positive one especially when I read posts like this. You have the freedom and the power to soar now. Life is full of such adventures when we are free from abuse so go get them. You deserve a happy safe life 💕 it sounds like you’re going from strength to strength and good luck in your new home too. How exciting x

      Thank you all for your lovely responses. I think that surviving abuse is a joint effort by us all and for us all. United, we stand!

      KIP was the first to respond to me, too, and you may well have been the second @eggshells! I echo your sentiment. Couldn’t have done it without … too many to name. 💕💕💕
