I’m trying to reach out to anyone who is going through a similar situation or has been through it and come out the other side.
I left my abusive relationship in 2009 and returned to the UK with my two children, then 15 and 10 yrs. We have had a turbulent time, financially and emotionally and both my children and myself have had mental health issues and are still struggling. My daughter who is now 26 is living at home with me and so is my son who is 21. As much as I want to guide them and give them as much support as possible which I do, this affects my own wellbeing also, I am recovering at the moment from breast cancer so it has been a very stressful time for me. I have been with my new partner for 8 years now although we live 35 miles from each other so we see each other when we can, this has worked well so far but I am beginning to think I need to put myself first and think about my future, I feel that if I just keep plodding along like this then nothing will change. No one seems to consider what I want. It would be good to hear from anyone experiencing the same or have experienced something like this, I feel quite desperate..
