30 Something Moms 30 Something Moms

**I FINALLY DID IT!! (AND HE HAS NO IDEA)**

Posted by   + Show Post

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!

I HOPE YOU ARE PROUD OF YOURSELF it takes courage and strength and you proved that you got that by doing what you are doing. Someone asked if you filed the necessary papers to protect yourself I agree that once you arrive to your destination you get orders of protection just in case and make sure you do what you need to do to protect the custody of your children so he dolesnt try to use them to get you back in town. MAY GOD BLESS YOU and if there is anything I can do besides keep u and ur family in my prayers get in contact with me. Good luck and god bless

Good luck!!! Maybe consider a restraining order as well? He probably won't react well. Stay strong!

He will be at work


Quoting Acid:

I'm honestly curious here but isn't he going to notice the rather large moving truck parked in the driveway?

I'm sorry, I hope things change before the worst does happen. I was promised many many empty promises, they get old. Good luck, obviously you and I are not the only ones struggling with "drinkers"...
I'm here if you need to chat!


Quoting Lyzmom:

Way to go momma! Good luck in your ventures. Stay strong, talk to someone, anyone... and often. You can work through it. You deserve better!

I did the same as you 1 1/2 years ago. Only, I went back after a few months because he quit drinking.

Well...he fell off the wagon two weeks ago. His choice, but I'm preparing for the worst.
