Ok here goes....I am 36 years old on my second marriage. I have 3 beautiful boys and a soon to be ex that gives his "substancs" more attention than his wife and kids. After several yeears of mental and physical abuse I pretty much decided that the marriage was over. I stuck around hoping that he would change for the sake of our kids but......nope. I went to take the kid to the grocery store when he picked up a baseball bat and told me we were not going to go to the store. Well of course I managed to get out of the house with th kids where he poceeded to chase us out of the yard with the bat....my kids screaming and crying, when I called 911. It was at that point that I decided that my kids lives were being destroyed by their father and in order to let them live normally I needed to go. I told him that I was leaving and taking the boys with me. He says that he will never lay eyes on them again because "you are like all other women". I moved 1600 miles away and am hoping to get my kids into somewhat of a normal life. I do not want another relationship because I am afraid of what it will bring, although I know that not all men are the same, I figure I didnt make it through 2 marriages why try for a 3rd. I guess I need some me time and some mommy time. Anyways that is my story and I apologize for ranting on as I did and hope to enjoy and read or get advice from any that wish to throw it my way.

Sherry,



Dont every feel sorry for posting here. There are posting that are 4xs as big as yours and some only one sentence or so.

I am sorry for your situation and I am glad that you got away from the abuse, that is never good for anyone.
