    Default Depression and separation

    I suffer from pnd/depression, and main cause is the verbal and emotional abuse from my husband.

    after my two year old started to mimic what he was doing, we separated on Saturday.

    Its for for the best, but I am still very sad for what we had at the start.

    I need some support. I've been sleeping all day the last two days, but I have a 2 year old and a 10 month old. So I can't keep going this way.

    I'm so sorry to hear your news. I am a PND/depression sufferer myself, so I totally understand you having been in bed for 2 days. Well done for getting up today. I think it's amazing what you have done so that your children have the best chance of growing up away from this kind of negative influence. All I can suggest is take it one day at a time, and let yourself go through the stages of grief - reading up about them may help you understand your feelings. There is no right or wrong way to feel right now. I know you are sad, and you probably never pictured yourself in this position, but by leaving your husband you have given him, and yourself, and your children, the message that you are worth more than that, you deserve better. Hang onto that, because it takes great strength to leave that kind of situation. You deserve nothing but the best.

    Please seek help if it all gets too much, and I know there are plenty of us on here to support you too.
