    Default Hello

    I'm not new, but haven't posted for a long time. We've had a lot of changes the past few months, my dd and I are now on our own after finally having the courage to leave a man who treated us very poorly, both verbally and emotionally.

    We love our new freedom even with the challenges of trying to do everything on our own now. My biggest challenge right now is trying to support us on my income.

    I've also started doing some things I haven't done for a long time. Exercising in the mornings before work and trying to do some sewing on my free evenings to make curtains for our new home.

    I'm hoping to find some new money saving ideas and maybe share some things I'm learning with everyone.

    Good luck to you on your new journey. I know from experience how hard it is to find the courage to leave an abusive husband. There's lots of support and help on the boards so welcome back.

    Hello, Mary. It is nice to meet you. I am in a similar situation to
    your former one and I am trying to find the courage to stand up for my DS and myself. How old is your DD if you don't mind my asking?

    carolyns - my dd is a senior in high school now. I raised both my children for 8 years on my own before I met my second dh. This was supposed to have been our second chance at having a real family. What I didn't realize was the children and I had been as much a family as any with both parents.

    My ds in now a senior in college but will be continuing for an additional year to finish his thesis work and a minor to compliment his degree. Dd plans to attend the same university in the fall. So I will really be on my own then.

    I hope you find the courage to do what is best for you and your ds. I know its difficult to leave an abusive relationship. I had some very good advice given to me from someone that had been there before and finally admitted to myself that living with someone that controls your life and is verbally and emotionally mean to both myself and my dd was abuse. I started thinking about leaving over a year ago and it took me many months to finally confront him with my decision.

    I hope things go well for you and I know you'll find lots of support from others here also.
