I posted on this site ages ago, about my abusive husband.

Well, his time is up!

This morning, looking at a house to rent....in a lovely situation. Feel so excited about a fresh start. But my hubby is being all nicey nicey today, almost like he 'knows' something is up.

Too late. He had 20 years of my life. He has sworn at me, abused me verbally and emotionally for years on and off, in between telling me he loves me SO MUCH and didn't want ANYONE else!!!!

He has been good these past few months, because I told him that I WAS leaving, he panicked. But he was venting on my daughter and I have a feelling its only a matter of time.....

So I have 8 days left with him. God keep me strong and resolved. Dear City Data people say a prayer for me......and thank you for all your previous advice it wasn't wasted you know!!!!

But, now is the time. My house sold in a month, this house for rent has come up and is perfect, all the signs are there....God is helping me and delivering me.

You go girl!!!!! You're about to lose 200lb of ugly fat in one day....feels so good!

You are also about to get "you" back after 20 years which is a wonderful, scary, exhilarating thing. Stay strong and safe!

Congratulations, but be very careful - especially in the next eight days. Leaving an abuser is dangerous. You might want to have a friend or relative with you when you make it official and/or move your things out.
