Sounds like me.
Dear Nola, I have just read your story and it sounds like me!
Please know that you're not alone. There are many women out there that are going through the same thing as you will have ... the same fears ... the same unanswered questions.
My abuser moved out 3 days ago, signed a new lease and everything and I'm staying in the old apartment under my name. It seems like he's pushing away from me and it scares me but then I think "how stupid" right? Why would I still want him after he strangled me when I was pregnant with our daughter? How could I still love him and want to be with him? When he spat in my face? You see how I can say that your story sounds like me?
It's normal to feel alone, isolated and scared, but please know that you're not alone.
But we have to be strong when we have to get away : otherwise that cycle starts all over again and like I've seen from many other women, some haven't survived. :(
But we are survivors! But while still in an abusive relationship, we are only ever survivors for one day at a time ... we're not promised tomorrow.
Stay strong momma <3
