I recently left my abusive husband. I have been constantly questioning myself... have I done the right thing? Am I at fault? Is his behaviour really just down to depression? Will he change?

I don't possess a vacuum cleaner or a washing machine and I sleep on a borrowed inflatable mattress. My daughter has been peacefully sleeping in her cot since 7:30pm, my dog is snoozing on the (donated) sofa and it has just dawned on me that I am sat here, doing what I want to do, listening to a radio station that I have chosen (as I no longer possess CDs or itunes)! Nobody has switched it off and turned on the TV or played their guitar or both at the same time!!!! I honestly can't remember the last time I have selected my own music in the evening!

Just wanted to share! I think we're going to be OK smile

I have a tv you can have if you like? It is not brilliant, and it is an older type flat screen, but you would be welcome to it. I am in west Lothian. I havnt anything useful, unfortunately.

You are amazing. I am crying blush. You will be ok and happier and your daughter will thank you for it when she is older. The best thing my mum ever did was leave my dad. You are free now smile.
