Hi allsmile

2012PP Tue 13-Dec-16 21:19:58

Thanks LILAC

Natsku Tue 13-Dec-16 21:30:21

Thanks Lilac

I record all my calls. Just listened back to it and he said to my OH that he's going to come round with his friends and beat OH so hard that he'll never be able to walk again. I'm calling DD's social workers tomorrow and telling them about this.
We're still waiting for the appeal court and my lawyer has no idea when its going to be. I think I'll email her now and tell her about this threat as well.

Natsku Tue 13-Dec-16 21:30:38

And of course this just had to happen on a night when we have no wine in the house!

greencarbluecar Tue 13-Dec-16 21:36:39

All help yourselves from the WN survival bar

Natsku Tue 13-Dec-16 21:39:18

Now that sounds like an excellent bar

greencarbluecar Tue 13-Dec-16 21:41:04

Oh Nat cross posted with you there. Virtual wine won't do the same. At least you have evidence of his behaviour, it won't do him any favours.

Mine is so entitled that he thinks the law should support him in his control of me. I think there is more going on with your ex though?

PurpleThursday Tue 13-Dec-16 21:43:03

Checking in wineall round (this is becoming a habit hmm)

greencarbluecar Tue 13-Dec-16 21:44:22

I'd like to open such a bar. In ideal fantasy land it would be free, funded by WNs via maintenance top up (because in ideal fantasy land the fuckers would actually pay it, and a decent amount) and we could all have space to support each other. Skype panels as standard for those not there in person, and copious supplies of complimentary NarcAway products.

(In actually reality I quite like the idea of a little cafe serving the above plus tea and sympathy for those moments when no one in RL gets it)

PurpleThursday Tue 13-Dec-16 21:44:27

Oooh, we've moved to divorce/separation! Promotion?

Natsku Tue 13-Dec-16 21:47:30

Mine is really ill with delusional disorder, although according to him I'm the one with delusional disorder, and I also have compulsive lying disorder and I'm just threatened by his amazingness hmm He showed how much of a misogynist he is though as well - when I said its impossible for anyone to get a word in edgewise with him he said "that's how men talk, women just need to stay out of the way" and while he was threatening my OH he kept calling him a "woman" in a derogatory manner and "fucking gay" and things like that. I feel so so sorry for DD that her dad has such disgusting views, I'm going to be spending her childhood trying to counteract any influence he has on her sad

Natsku Tue 13-Dec-16 21:48:22

Oooo promoted thread! grin

Ohb0llocks Tue 13-Dec-16 22:14:41

Checking in! wine all round. There's some utter twats in the world.

Lilacpink40 Tue 13-Dec-16 22:42:20

Oops I was worried final page would fill so stuck new thread it in 'divorce/separation' as thought it was probably that before, couldn't remember. Will MN ask for it to be moved do you think? blush confused

Lilacpink40 Tue 13-Dec-16 22:47:21

Nat I was shocked by he said to my OH that he's going to come round with his friends and beat OH so hard that he'll never be able to walk again it's such a clear threat of GBH. Will you take it to police or social workers will do that?

nicenewdusters Tue 13-Dec-16 22:52:02

Thanks Lilac Didn't even know there was a topic called Divorce/Separation blush ! It feels more grown up - can we still swear and use the term WN? Did MNHQ move us here?

Can I open a tab at the bar Greencar? I don't drink much these days, but the cake and chocolate look good.

I wish you never had to speak to him Nats, nobody should be subjected to that kind of offensive rubbish.

nicenewdusters Tue 13-Dec-16 22:54:28

Lilac shall we ask for it to be moved back to Relationships, to make sure the others can find us again?

Lilacpink40 Tue 13-Dec-16 22:56:46

Yes - dusters do you know to request a move? If not I'll investigate...

PurpleThursday Tue 13-Dec-16 23:06:32

I'm not bothered where it is! I'm sure we keep popping up on 'active' anyway, and it's linked on the other thread anyway. Don't worry lilac have a wine I am wink

nicenewdusters Tue 13-Dec-16 23:11:03

I'm sorry I don't know Lilac. Purple is right that it's often on "active" and linked from the last thread. Was thinking more about the less regular posters who will search for it under Relationships if it's not on active.

Lilacpink40 Tue 13-Dec-16 23:14:07

I've had a look and quick advice in similar situation was to report it. So I've reported myself shock and very nicely asked if it can be shifted across grin.

Temped by wine but this time of night I have sweet craving for hot chocolate

PurpleThursday Tue 13-Dec-16 23:19:59

Ooooh, I used to LOVE hot chocolate with a dash of rum ( I am aware that I am starting to sound like an alcoholic here but please don't worry!!)

greencarbluecar Wed 14-Dec-16 07:26:52

dusters you can open a tab at the bar, of course. Run it high, and then (in fantasy land) WNs will have to foot the bill. Compensation for what they put us through.

I tried to add lots of tea but the pictures didn't work sad must've done it wrong.

lilac you've made me realise I wasn't shocked by what Nat's ex said, just wearily sympathetic. I've normalised that kind of language, which is terrible. flowers Nat I should have realised it needed to be said.

Lilacpink40 Wed 14-Dec-16 07:51:56

Green I may have noticed it more as my WN was very good at aggressive body language. Storming around, dark 'I want to kill you' looks, talking as though furious but not usually saying obvious words that could catch him out.

After split,,when he actually said something that matched his actions he would quickly go quiet and go back to acting like his actions were right and I was the one with the problem. Even telling me that I was always saying negative things to his family (I don't and don't have contact) that I was always posting on FB about him (I'm hardly on it and no posts on him since split) and that I was trying to hold his life back (by asking if I could have weekend contact times agreed in advance).

Natsku Wed 14-Dec-16 08:07:05

I emailed my lawyer and she wants me and OH to go to her office sometime soon. Have sent a message to DD's social workers too to ask them to call me when they have a spare moment. I think OH will be reporting it to the police but will probably wait until after we've spoken to my lawyer as she would know the best way to go about this. Listened to the call again and remember that it was just the same way he would shout at me whenever he was angry at me, just constantly shouting and telling me to shut my fucking mouth whenever I tried to say anything.

Shall have to open a tab at the WN survival bar.
