This year has been so incredibly difficult! I finally escaped my abusive relationship and started gaining control of my life again. I finally stopped being scared all of the time. And then I found out that during our marriage my abusive husband, who had taken control over every aspect of my life, had run me in to thousands of pounds of debt. I was never allowed to collect the post. I was never allowed a phone. I was never allowed to use the computer. He topped me talking to my friends and eventually my family. He would time me on the school run and if I had taken to long I was in big trouble. Years of abuse and control, coercion. Now I'm finally free from him me and my little children are in danger of loosing everything. Most importantly we are in danger of loosing our home. I've done everything I can to balance debts and pay thing's. I'm fighting so hard, still. Because he left me in a mess. I had a terrible breakdown in May and tried to end my life because after all he put me through he still wins. He still has power. I've never been n debt in my life before, never not paid everything on time, never got credit out nothing. Now I'm stuck in thousands of pounds of debt.
I don't know what else to do anymore but I'm desperate to pay off at least a chunk of the rent so we don't get evicted. Which is what will be happening very soon. I just want my life, happiness, freedom back that he robbed from me.
