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!!!
