      I’ve been planning to leave I’ve now got a job interview but he won’t let me go unless I tell him where I’m going because he’s busy he said I can take my child but I can’t do I’ve got someone else coming but if I get the job not sure how it will plan out.but I’m hoping it gets me away from the house just worried about day care as I don’t get support

      Rely on him for nothing. One step at a time. Tell him nothing. Go for the job interview and 🤞 good luck. Working and having an income brings confidence and an income, both of which an abuser will try to destroy.

      Good luck! If you are genuinely separated but still under the same roof you can apply for benefits, this can help with childcare costs. As Kip said don’t rely on him, even if he said he’d help he’d let you down last minute. Get used to supporting yourself

      100% don’t rely on him at all! You can do this! That’s fantastic you have an interview well done! X this is all part of taking your control back and it’s amazing x x x x be proud x I understand it will be hard as he will make it hard but you can do this x

      I did this was the best thing i couldve done.
      I lied told him I was at a drs appointment womens troubles he didnt argue then.
      I got the job and love it with all my heart.
      He hates it he stops me every day I really have to fight to go. They have put me on a course that i also love he hates it and stops me studying so i have to grab an hour in my car I doubt i will pass its so hard with all thats going on with him but somewhere deep inside i have a fire in my nelly a determination to succeed dispite him.
      Look for that fire go for that job it could be the start of something amazing.
      Good luck xx
