@wishnforhappiness:  Leaving is the hardest part…and you’ve done that and even though i dont know you personally, Im so proud of you for taking that step.

You’re right, these next few months are going to be tough, but you’ve got your family supporting you 100%

I am so happy you have taken control and removed yourself from the situation.  I understand that you want to get your things, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring someone (a brother, father, etc) with you. Your safety is worth so much more.

I know this is a difficult time, but I’m glad you were able to leave, and that you have the support of your family. Also, as PPs have said, please bring someone with you when you get your clothes and personal belongings. Even if you’re sure he’ll be out of the house, better safe than sorry. Also, if you don’t have someone to being with you, then you can ask your local police to send a police officer with you. They’ve done it many times, you won’t be the first or last to ask.

@wishnforhappiness:  girl I have been thinking about you like crazy! I’m so glad to hear you are safe, have your family’s support and have a plan! I’m glad you’ll be with family. Helping them out will give you something constructive to do (though I’m sorry to hear about the cancer diagnosis). were you able to get your dog too?

best of luck! This first step is likely the hardest. While you’ll have more challenges, you’ll pull strength from reserves you didn’t know you had. ((Hugs))

I am so glad you are leaving him.  You ARE special and you DO deserve a much better life than being stuck in abusive marriage.

Retain a lawyer asap and forge ahead to the wonderful adventure your life will be soon.
