I left an abusive marriage just 2 months ago. I really don't know where to begin with needing help - I feel so lost and heartbroken.
Opening up and acknowledging that you were a victim of domestic abuse is the first step.I have children, however he and I did not together. I recently joined an online group called Divorce Recovery but unfortunately there is nothing within 70 miles of me for an actual face to face meeting. I honestly hadn't even thought of any domestic abuse groups and will be looking into those locally for myself and family.
I have good days and bad days and good and bad within each. For the first time I am putting me first in the right ways and thankfully I have support where I did not think... Correction, where I did not realize I had before in family and friends. Talking took me a while because my embarrassment and shame, having had been an executive at one time in my past life, however that has been freedom for me on so many levels.
Thank you for taking the time to respond and for the advice.
