After being married to an alcholic for almost 16 years and living a life of a roller coaster, taking all his abuse (mental, verbal, and at times physical), putting my kids in a bad environment, and just over all living a life of chaos...

I RENTED A UHAUL STORAGE YESTERDAY AND WHEN HE GOES TO WORK EITHER FRIDAY OR MONDAY, I AM PACKING UP AND LEAVING!!!!

I have friends helping me move. I have support from my family and friends. I live 2 hours from my parents and 10 hours from my sister so they can't help me move out but they will be there for us to go to. My kids and I will be staying with my sister until I get a place of my own. I am scared to start this new journey but I have complete faith in both The Lord and Myself!! I know it won't be easy but I am ready to take it on!!

 

PLEASE DON'T RESPOND UNLESS YOU HAVE WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT OR ADVISE!

Good luck to you!! I know how hard it is to make that leap!! You won't regret it. If you need a shoulder, drop me a line. I've been in a similar spot.

Is there a chance trouble could start if he found you? A good start may be at a shelter to get some legal paperwork rolling. BTW, good for you :) It's takes balls to finally say you've had enough.

Congratulations on starting this new journey.  

Although, legally ... there will be ramifications.  You need to talk with a lawyer as well.  But congratulations on this first big step.
