I am so overwhelmed! My separation is really taking its toll on me and I'm not sure how much longer I can do this. I finally got a lawyer and while I feel better about having someone to protect my interests I am feeling shame and guilt about having to fight with my ex. He is being rediculous about financial matters, and is trying to bully me constantly but I don't want to fight. I never wanted to fight. I left so that I could find some peace, and now I'm just going through more crap. Now he's asking me to give back gifts that he gave me, refusing to do financial disclosure, claiming that I am being "mentally cruel" and threatening to take me off benifits because he knows I can't afford my meds
I want to get better! He won't let me, he does everything he can to upset me. I am so angry with myself for letting him continue to do this to me but I don't know how to stop it.
