      He has been out of rehab and back home for a few months now and back on the drink. Im feeling fed up and worn out, ive tried numerous times this year to end it, but he manages to convince me to stay with him. He has told me to leave the house and I am not allowed to take my daughter, he is not leaving and never will, and that I have mental issues and will report me and I wont get my daughter. Even though I am working and paying for everything and keeping a roof over his head while he sits at home every day. I have anxiety because of him. I cant afford to move out and keep the house going and I am not leaving my daughter with him. The debt is rising and I feel like im drowning financially, emotionally & physically. I have finally contacted womens aid and going to see someone tomorrow, I really hope I am strong enough to do this, I feel a bit shaky, I just want to find the strength to see this through this time x

      You can do it. I divorced mine, though he made me think I couldn’t survive without him. I was in huge financial straits- but it’s gradually improving, with a few little changes to my daily living. I am getting on top of things. You will too.

      He’s only making you think you won’t cope without him. You will. Xx
