I am a survivor of DV.  I have 3 kids, my  "best friend" of 22 years and  husband of 9 years, has recently been removed from my household thank God, and we are surviving with strength. I am looking for new friends and support. I feel like there's nobody 'out there' to talk to. Naturally all my family and friends have been removed and I have to start over, haven't had friends in years. Just repairing my abandonment of family.  Trying to get them to understand that I honestly mean it and will not return to the idiot again (left 3 times previously then was fool enough to get married to him!).

 We've been through alot of 'tests' in the past 3 months and came out better with each one, ie my son's car was stolen, problems with finances, etc but getting thru it.

 I'm not looking for handouts at all. I don't want to sound like a freak because I am an intelligent woman who has high morals and believe in these few rules: What goes around comes around, and patience is a virtue/ good things come to those who wait. I have a huge heart and have been fed up with being a doormat. I have strong smart children and we are determined to enjoy our lives rather than live with someone's hand shoved up our butt like his puppets. I am a people person, am very compassionate and am a great trainer, teacher or mentor. I can't believe I've allowed myself to be manipulated and trampled on for so many years and actually protect that whole part of life.

Anybody who would like to chat, I'm open. Thank you.

Feb. 3, 2008 at 11:36 AM Sorry to hear you have been through so much. I haven't been on cafe mom and only made a couple friends so far. I know what you mean about just needing someone to talk to. I was in a relationship for 3 years that was violent but was afraid to end it because i was young with two babies. But, I finally did and now I'm happy to say I've been married for going on four years to a wonderful man. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Keep your spirits up. If you need to vent or just talk about nothing I'm here.
