Just that really!

With dp 16 years. Im so irritated by him that literally the noise of him breathing is annoying me!

No OW.
No DV.
No anything really!

How did you know it was beyond repair?

..because he wasn't interested in doing anything to save it.

Because my then 4 year old called me a cunt. We left that day. She had seen too much when I thought I was protecting her from it.

He made my flesh crawl . I began watching him in a totally detached way.
No dv, no OW or OM.
Best thing I ever did.

He made my skin crawl and the idea of staying with him just made me want to curl up in a ball.

I realized I had gone numb and like a pp felt myself watching him in a detached way

Yes afreshstart...I clocked every putdown, irritating habit...and mentally said "fuck off" a lot

When I realised I was clinging to the side of the bed when we slept trying to keep as far away from him as possible because even him breathing annoyed me!

When I realised that no matter how hard leaving him would be, it wouldn't be nearly as hard as living with myself for the rest of my life knowing I could have left, but didn't.

When I realised his drinking was never going to change and it was up to me to make the decision for me and the DCs to stop living like that, no one else.
