Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

it's been almost a year since I managed to get my kids and I away from my abusive ex of 5 year....its took me a year of rebuilding my own self self esteem up enough to resist his constant attacks. although he was so manipulative that he had my own mother siding with him through it all, losing the house, my car, being homeless for 2 months with 3 kids, etc, I still managed to maintain all of the positive changes I'd made to myself. Now, here I am, 10 month later....and I am so broken that I don't know what to do anymore. what caused the crash? the relentless attacks from my mom, my dad backing, her up without even speaking to me for months, being completely isolated and not able to leave my home for weeks at a time due to my anxiety and PTSD.....and to top it all off.... I found out 3 months ago that I am dying.....Which I've kept to myself because I of the lack of support- even emotionally- from my family. I just wonder now why I fought so fucking hard to get my life back, when I wont even be here 6 months from now......

  • Don't give up so fast. You never know what will happen. Miracles happen every day. I'm not saying to bank on that, but don't necessarily limit yourself either. My grandfather lived 15 years longer than any doctor said he would, and if you count the doctors saying he wouldn't live past 2... He lived 91 years longer than they expected. Live each day like it's your last. Cherish your time with your loved ones and enjoy the life you've made for yourself. Everyone's life ends eventually, don't let it stop you from being happy during the precious time you have. Be proud of yourself for what you've done not just for you, but for your kids. It takes a lot to do something like that and I've watched my own mom go through it. I have so much respect for you. If your own family is too dense to realize what was really going on... let them go. You don't need people in your life who encourage toxicity and negativity to rule you. You are your own woman. Don't let anyone else tell you what is best for you.
