My husband, who I am separated from, told me tonight he followed me to a support group meeting I went to at the domestic violence safe house. We are separated because he is abusive, more emotionally than physically.
I had a restraining order against him once, which I chose to drop (dumb choice? maybe. probably...). But, the fact that he FOLLOWED me to a safe house, KNOWING that was where I was going is really upsetting to me. Do I file another restraining order and this time, keep it, while I file for divorce?
I've held off filing for divorce b/c I thought that if he got help, he might turn himself around. So far, he insists that he is getting better, etc. but its been 6 months and not much has changed. He had the nerve tonight to tell me that I just don't want to come home b/c I am living a "cushy" life right now. (Really? Sleeping on a twin mattress in my parents' living room, with my toddler son on a palette next to me? No space of my own? Crappy vehicle? Having to work around the 3 other adults that live in this house besides myself while wrangling a toddler? Trying to go to school part/full time. Oh, the list continues....)
I'm crushed, pissed... and I don't want to get to a point where my head falls off completely...
