Hi ladies. Am very. Sorry to hear that, rachey. I guess am looking for a kind word too, maybe we could give them to each other. My story is that I went to counselling after cancer treatment cos I was so depressed and just not getting any stronger, and my counsellor started off by wandering if my bf was selfish, and then suggested I go to woman’s aid as he is being abusive emotionally. Shock! Luckily cancer has taught me all sorts of strong skills, but this has still knocked me for 6. I’m up late and wandering around forums looking for support because I think I may have just been an idiot. We were going to see his family then his friends after Xmas, and I got more and more concerned about my mum 85, being on her own. She lives in Spain and he makes it very difficult for me to see her, I don’t earn, and he won’t pay for my ticket so she has sent me money. Last time I went, 4 months after treatment, he yelled and nagged for 2 weeks before, telling me I’d booked the wrong flight, Id done it all wrong. Etc.The woman’s aid lady said, don’t tell him till the last minute. But of course now the in laws are upset, and he’s furious. And I’ve ruined Xmas and am a bundle of nerves. Help!
