I got a call back last night. They agree that I am backed up against a corner with everything that has happened over the past week. They advised me to seek legal advice as a priority and to get alternative accommodation. I am completely shut off from his family – who once felt like my own. And I just want to show everyone what he has been doing to me and the children! I am still finding it so scary to do that though!
I have a meeting planned with my case worker to get the ball rolling, and a doctors appt too.
I’m finding it all really difficult to cope with right now, I can’t stop crying I feel so totally torn for my poor children. But he has shown me nothing but cruelty and that’s not on.
It feels like it has come at the absolute worst time. I am meant to be starting my new job soon but I feel like it’s all been ruined, I don’t know how I am going to cope alone and the whole ordeal with the coming battle just feels like such a big mountain, I feel like I have lost my whole life and maybe even eventually, my children too.
How do you all get through this?

It’s a cliche but one day at a time step by step. More so belief in what your doing is for all the right reasons. I learned a lot from my experience the exact same I was☹️I didn’t know what to do or which way to turn. The beginning off all off this is a blur I will be honest. I do remember picking myself up tho when I got a real foot up the arse. He went to find out if he could take half the house to put us out. After that I thought right it’s game on. Anger set in really. I wrote a list of everything I needed to do and chipped away just about everyday. I had a day off when I got overwhelmed. The secret is to keep pushing through endurance and belief in what your doing will see u through. Days turn to months and before you know it u have stacks of evidence and professionals behind you. There will be bumps in the road as some people don’t want to help or get involved but that’s how it goes. Keep going and this shows everyone a clear message you want justice xx you will get it – if you need a hand we’re here 💖

Thank you ladies,
Feeling much more positive today and optimistic. It’s so nice getting the silent treatment actually! I can think clearly, i’m not feeling down because of negative comments and I am arming myself with the tools to counteract the badmouthing being done to my children. Long may it continue!

That’s good baby steps and you’ll get stronger with time. Your healing and strength will do the same for your kids.youll lead them by example – don’t be scared to forge forward because kids and us for that matter are very resilient. There’s no choice we have to be. Keep going you sound soo positive I take my hat off. When your going through all of this that is very commendable xx ❤️
