I have: Fibromyalgia, CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, depression
Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren.
I know where you are coming from. I have a sister who is right now going thru the same. She has Fibro & Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her ex-hubby drinks and is downright mean to her, but she stays for the money.
The thing is....she is just hurting herself more. Her pain is worse when they argue, or when she worries about money, etc. She is waiting on her court date for disability and keeps saying when it comes through she'll be able to leave.
It drives me crazy because I know she has other places for her and the kids to go, at least until she has money to support herself. Every day things just get worse and I see how badly she is feeling.
Please don't let things get so bad that you have to suffer. There are places you can go and people that will help you. I hope things get better for you. Please keep us posted when you can.
Never regret something that made you smile!

I am glad that you have decided to get out of the bad situation you are in. You don't deserve that & later you will feel so much better. It is very hard to make yourself leave. I think we view our relationships as security. We are so used to having someone there and supporting us that the thought of being on our own is very scary.
I really believe that in time you will be so much better off. Just be strong and think things through. Marlee gave you great advice on checking with the landlord & other things. You may second guess yourself & worry you're not doing the right thing, but keep telling yourself that you are making your life better. It will get better, just take one day at a time!
Come back anytime to talk or let us know how you are doing. Good luck with everything.
