I haven't been on here much recently as i have mainly been on Eating Disorder support groups. But i wanted to pop by and share something. Today is ONE YEAR since i left my physically and emotionally abusive husband. The people on this site really realy helped me to realise that it was an abusive relationship and i needed to get out, and helped to give me the strength and the belief to do it. One year down the road i haven't regretted it once. Financially it has been really tough, i have moved a couple of times, and the Eating Disorder i developed within the relationship has carried on getting worse. BUT, i am now so much closer to friends and fmaily, i have found out just how supportive people are, i have a good new life and live with two wonderful women in a new town, and every day i am thankful that i left, and i am really begining to realise just how awful the relationship was, and how unfair he was to me. I am getting help for my Eating Disorder, and i don't think i could have done that within the relationship at all. So it has been tough, but worth it, and i truly feel like i am rebuilding myself and my life after 10 years of being ground down. I am beginign to see that actually, i am a strong woman, despite what i was made to believe for all of those years. I wanted to share this with you to give hope to those who need it righ now. And let's all toast my one year leaving anniversary, whoop!!!

This past week, an extended family member was murdered by her psychopathic ex whom she was trying to get away from. She had just turned 21 yrs old and had her whole life ahead of her. He burned her body beyond recognition and tried to make it look like an accident. They couldn't even ID her. Over 10 years ago, this was almost me. I was stalked relentlessly by a guy I had briefly dated. It turned...
