Marriage over after 26 years.
Sorry I missed your post yesterday, I was at work, then I went to the park to read a book. I had to get out of the house, it is sending me insane, literally!
Please don't feel useless. I know that feeling too well. Centre link were great with me, the problem was my 'partner' told me she wouldn't agree to classing us as "separate under one roof", she said I am just a stupid person and should get over it, as she has.
Years of putdowns have rocked my self confidence, that was the whole idea I now realise.
And now that I want to leave, they are more frequent than ever before; I am served hot putdown for breakfast lunch and tea.
That is my rant anyway, I hope today finds you in a better place Arnya.
I have a lot on my plate, BUT through the site/and the air, I am sending you positive vibes and thoughts for your happiness.
Please read "GoodWitch - I want to separate from my husband but don't know how".
If you have already read it I apologise, if you haven't I highly recommend it. It is a life changer.
It is a long thread, a journey for a number of people. It is in this family and separation section.
(The forms don't need a second signature, go into Centrelink and tell them at the counter you want to speak to a social worker. I was shocked at how genuine the help was. They will provide you with everything you need to know). BUT, read that thread (if you haven't), it is astounding.
