Seperated and lost
Hello Witchy, one thing you can not be prepared for is the 'unpredictable' and if or when it may happen, such as going into his daughters bedroom, that's her domain and I'm sure she wouldn't be too pleased at all.
This is where trust begins to break down.
Good luck with the lotto ticket.
Thank you for sharing an update with us here. We can hear you're feeling really lost. Sharing here is an amazing step to have taken. We hope you can see it as a step towards feeling better.
We’d really encourage you to give our counsellors a call on the Beyond Blue Support Service. We are available 24/7 by phone on 1300 22 4636, and the team are really good at talking people through moments like this and working out options for support. If you’re feeling suicidal or are having thoughts about harming yourself, it's important that you take immediate steps to keep safe. If you feel unable to keep yourself from acting on your thoughts about suicide or self-harm this is an emergency and you need to call 000 (triple zero).
We’d also recommend reaching out to 1800RESPECT to get support with this, and maybe talk to them about safety planning. You can contact them on 1800 737 732 and they also have webchat here. They are experts in supporting people who are experiencing abuse and will listen in a kind, understanding and non-judgmental way.
We’re sure we’ll hear from our lovely, supportive community soon. In the meantime, here’s a few things you might like to look at:
- Blue Knot’s advice on self-care for survivors of trauma and abuse
- 1800 RESPECT’s advice on safety planning, in case it would help to think about options you could take to feel more safe
- It's really important to be kind to yourself through this, so there's some tips for practicing self-care here.
Please feel free to share a bit more and let us know what is going on for you, and what might help, if you feel comfortable.
I’m ok, very bad week I think, on top of everything else happening I’m going through menopause.
so that just adds to low moods. I’m on patches for that so hopefully it sorts itself.
I have a therapy session with my psychologist Tuesday so I should be ok till then. Just had a bad day. Feel like I’m living someone else’s life.
not my own. Out of sorts is probably the word.
im trying to walk everyday so my head stays clear. Today I drove 2.5 hrs each way with the intentions of staying at a friends house, I had a cup of tea and drove all the way back again.
trying to tell myself that I deserve to be happy and I know I need to get away from the husband who mopes around making me feel awful.
