My Abusive Life
I've been in an abusive violent marriage
22 years. I stayed to raise my 7 sons, I'm over 50 and a grandmother of 6. He's in jail for his 7th assault charge, I used to beg courts for leniency this time I won't even though his mom is trying to coerce me into lying and retracting my statement but I won't. He wouldn't let me keep a job outside the home but I'm looking for work now, trying catch up on coast due mortgage etc. I feel so relieved about him being unable to hurt me that the stress of financial ruin isn't making me crazy. I need some hope, advice etc. His mom took his vehicle tools and anything of value I could sell to catch up bills she refuses to let me have them, she isn't worried about my autistic son, so selfish...I need a lawyer I guess but since I applied for food stamps I have to apply at 30 jobs a week to keep them, I'm lost happy everything is so overwhelming.
