I am a 38 yr old woman who recently left my husband. There was emotional & verbal abuse. I am living in my ex husbands father's home (he passed away & he wasnt using it). My husband went to a few classes with a counsellor & now he is telling me that he haslife changed. My 2 kids dont believe that a person can change after a month & i try 2 beleive him, but then i dont know how long it will last. Life is so hard right now. I am disabled & currently tryin to live on less than $600 a month, but the ends dont meet up. I have been hanging out with my husband & he has been giving me a little money now & then 2 help. I just feel so worthless. Im tryin so hard 2 raise my 2 kids, but what do i do?

Follow what your heart and your conscience tell you to do. I will be praying for you.

Thirty eight and disabled that is tough on top of change of life just around the corner to add to your emotions

I also was divorced when I was 34, I had my emotional problem then too. I made some bad mistakes that made matter worse.

If I were you and your husband is geting help try and hang in there for your childrens sake. I became too emotionally ill and was unable to care for them. It was heart breaking to see them hurt by this.

Try to ignore his verbal abuses until you get stronger., then you can become less dependent on him and take some courses so you can support yourself

~bless your heart~

try to keep your head up dear!

if you ever need to talk, i'm online quite a bit and am a pretty good listener.
