    And It's the Hardest Thing I've Ever Done

    I just don't know what to say... Update: June 21 I have moved into my own place and tonight will be my ninth sleep here. It was a long time coming, and so hard, but it is done, and I couldn't be happier.

    I have been in a bad marriage

    for 18 years. He is emotionally and verbally abusive and very controlling! We have 3 children together so we have to share custody and figure out all of that. Who will live where? do we sell the house? But this is a good thing. Something very upsetting I went through 8 year ago...

    Whats Next?

    So i got the nerve to leave after 3 years of marriage. I am leaving because I am tired of his selfish ways. I need to let him go and convince him to let me go. I need to stop leading him on and just be honest about my decision.

    I know I have to do this.

    It will be difficult. I don't have a job. I will probably have to give up going to school for a while. Not sure where I can live. I don't want to be dependent on anyone, but I need help! I am going to have to ask my mother to help me. If I have to go live with her I will...

    Giving up on a monster...

    The first few months of our marriage was the happiest...I loved him and I was thankful to God (well I thought I WAS) for giving me him as my partner in my life. He loved my family and accepted me for who I was and my past (I have a daughter of 1 year, not his). I knew about what...
