I just need to vent :(

Thanksgiving night, we woke up to a fire in our living room. The fire was contained to the living room, but smoke destroyed everything we had. I am so glad that we all got out safely and that is what really matters.

Exactly one week later, right down to the time of the fire, my dad passed away due to a massive heart attack. I miss him more than words can express. All I ever wanted was for him to be proud of me and I know that he wasn't proud of me when he died. I would give anything to have him back with us. I am trying to adjust to him being gone, but it still just doesn't feel real.

Just 4 days after my dad passed my husband got drunk and jerked me back by my collar as I was walking out the door and I banged my head really hard on the door frame. I am thankful that we are in a hotel (due to the fire) and the security guard heard me screaming and came quickly. I truly believe that if the guard would not have heard me scream, he would have killed me. My husband is in jail and I have made arrangements for my son and me to get away from him for good.

I have been through hell within the last 2 weeks and I feel so alone :( I don't have friends because I wasn't allowed to have them. If you have read this whole thing, thank you for taking the time to read. I really just needed to get this out 😥

I am so sorry for the loss of your dad.know deep down he loved you and was proud of you. Don't think otherwise.

Things can be replaced from the fire. The main is you walked away from the fire.

Things may happen for a reason (fire) so, that other things get better (your huband is in jail now)

Go into Christmas and the New Year with New outlook. Things will be better. Hugs

I'm so sorry.  What a horrible time for you and your son.  I know it doesn't seem like it but things will get better.  Years ago I left an abusive man and thought the world had ended.  I had to start completely over again.  I had no friends.  Everything looked and felt different.  I felt numb some days and like I'd been hit by a truck other days.  It got better though.  Therapy helped a lot.

I'm sure your dad was proud of you and I'm sorry he passed.  Remember how much he loved you and don't torture yourself with any negative thoughts about him.

You put your abusive husband in jail and are doing right by your son. Your dad is so proud of you. He's by your side and he's going to help you get through this. I wish you the best.

I am so sorry. I have faith that your dad is watching over you right now. Talk to him and may it bring comfort to you.

Things will improve.
