My husband lost his job and hit me for the last time. I went out of town for work. I had no choice but to go.

I said goodbye to my husband of 24 years and asked for a divorce because he wouldn’t work, and was abusive to me mentally and physically. He was cheating on me again and he lied to me all the time and was very fraudulent with money scams payday loans. He had a gambling habit and a alcohol problem. I couldn’t live the rest of my life on egg shells, and continue to live with an absolute crazy man. He was bipolar and had manic episodes constantly. He hurt me physically so badly that I have pain daily.

I reset by moving out of the marital home. I moved out-of-state into a friend’s house.
