Quick Update

It has been a very stressful month - feel like I have been to hell and back (slowly). I had to move out, since AH came back after 2 days of leaving (I do not even remember how many times, we have done this back and forth). I again called the cops but same story - he has every right to the home as much as I do and if he resfues to leave, they cant do anything. So, I moved out. The kids came back home (to the new place) from my sister's and have started school. The younger one had a tough time adjusting to the change, since he is missing all his friends at the old place. He is doing ok now and we are slowly settling in. I got internet connection at the new place only during the past weekend..

So, within the past month - filed for divorce, moved out. Now looks like I might have to start job hunting again. My contract job ends this month end and no word yet on whether it is getting extended. I am past being stressed out now.. Have the first court date (temporary custody hearing) coming up on sep 1. Lots of drama going with the STBXAH - am trying to hang in there.. I have lots of paperwork to fill and other stuff to take care of and completely overwhelmed. Trying to take it easy whenever I feel overwhelmed..

Thanks for checking in, BeProactive.
It sounds like you and your family are working towards a better, healthier place. I'm happy for you.
It's stressful, dealing with an alcoholic, and then removing yourself from one. It does get better.

Here's wishing you lots of "better."

I'm sorry it's stressful on multiple fronts for you right now. I've found that when I am feeling particularly overwhelmed, I shave things down to 5 minutes at a time.

Sending you hugs of support!
