    hello everyone

    This book I found helpful, not sure if its still in print.

    Too Good to Leave, Too Bad to Stay by Mira Kirshenbaum

    It has many questions to think about and it helped going through the whole thought process.

    Just an idea.

    Thanks. I am thinking I will probably need to leave my husband. I have had enough of his behaviour. He’s got worse. Sick of feeling neglected and his abusive behaviour. I don’t feel safe emotionally with him. I don’t trust him. Scared of the grief I will feel.

    Any chance of an update from Goodwitch. Her words are so honest and open and it’s helping me to look within.

    I hope she’s okay.

    Elusive welcome to the forum.

    I a. Glad goodwitch’s words have helped you.
    This thread was started in 2018 amd people move on and off the forum. Sometimes people come back and update and some move on.

    As this is an old thread you may want to start your own thread. It is up to you.
    Thanks again for your post and welcome.

    I have also been reading her posts and hope she is going ok. I have come back to this forum a year after posting my first post.

    I am wondering if anyone knows of any online/telehealth counselling services that have helped them. I find it hard to get away without the kids and haven't got a lot of money left over once the bills are paid each week. I still think i need to leave my relationship, but I am terrified of the effect it might have on my kids, i can't decide if it's the right thing, the selfish things, or all of the above. My head is a mess.
