    Hi everyone!

    I haven’t posted for quite a while on here but I authored the “separating after domestic abuse” post back in December.

    I’m really struggling ladies and gents. Since I left my husband, the rest of my life had fallen apart. My job has been difficult since I told them about my ex-husband and I have been treated unfairly so unfortunately I found out on Friday that I have lost my job, I’m selling my house but wont see the money for a few months yet, one of my friends has completely dismissed me because I didnt go to a party the other day, unfortunately, I didn’t do this because I was in hospital following a collapse,  I’m struggling in many other areas too but dont want to bore you.


    What can I do?

    As long as your kids are safe.

    Theres the option of a womens refuge. Getting time out for you.

    Have family look after your kids until you get straight. The Citizens Advice Bureau can help you with finances etc.

    Just take one day at a time and dont become reclusive or isolated. Keep talking and keep working it through. One day at a time.

    Hi Chez86

    I’m sorry you are going through a rough period of time.  You can always call our Single Parent Helpline.  Sometimes it can help to explore what options are available for you.  Hope this helps, Justine

    I didn’t want to read and run but wanted to send my best wishes to you. It is always traumatic coming out of an abusive relationship and having to become independent again after years of feeling like you are worthless. Surround yourself with those you trust the most and explain to them that sometimes you may let them down because you don’t want to be at their events but because life does take over and that you are struggling and need their support not their judgements or cold shoulders. I know it seems all is bad at the minute but there will be a turning point and you will feel stronger again it’s always very uncertain when you just come out of abuse xx

    It will get better..I know this! I was there 5 months ago. CAB, is the place to start, they may even be able to get something out of your employer,  and help you with the other issues.

    No matter what keep going .

    all the best
