Not an easy thing to do for sure...

Sharing stories like this does help people, Good for you !
Thanks Bella - I took the hard path for 15 years... at the time I left I thought myself a failure (even though I had the righteous indignation happening...and the how fucking dare you do this to me attitude)
emotional abuse is the worst - it saps you of your strength and any notion that you know what is right for yourself... I am still learning that how I feel and think is right ... for me.
