Moving On

It's been the worst three weeks of my life but I am now at a friend's place awaiting a flight to England next Saturday. Alcohol is to blame. I've tried my best for years but can't cope with the alcoholic rages any more so now he must try to get sober without me.
Thankyou all for your support and messages.
I'll be staying with my sister in Dorset while I work out what to do next. I'll keep in touch from there.
Cheers Gillian


  • So sorry you are going through such a miserable time. I hope you find peace in your new life.

  • Oh Gillan

    I do so feel for you! So glad to see your message as I was quite concerned about you. Having been through something similar, a husband with brain damage and prone to anger problems to say the least I want to assure you that you have just made the best decision of your life. It may not seem like it at the moment but enough is enough.

    I look forward to catching up with you when you are in England. A bit further to go to visit tho! :)

    Take care, Beverley

  • Life can only get better, and at least now you have your family around you for support. I do hope that one day we can meet up again too and have a knit together. We are sending warm hugs your way and hope that Bloke the teddy bear is looking after you too. At least now you only have to worry about yourself and you will be much happier down the track. I am sure there will be a lot of bloggers you can catch up with in England too. Happy Knitting!

  • Best wishes to you Gillian, I hope all turns out well for you, keep in touch with your blogging. Lucky you, you will be probably be having a lovely White Christmas, hope it doesn't get too cold for you.

  • Gillian, big hugs from here. I'm sorry to hear about the alcohol problem, but I'm inspired that you have the strength to move on. This is one of the hardest decisions a person ever has to make, especially when you still love or care about the person with the problem. But life is too short to live in fear and dread. Besides, this is probably the best wake up call that he could get and maybe it will motivate him to seek professional help. And in all seriousness, we do have lots of room and if you want to come spend some time in the States then we would be thrilled to have you. I know the airfare can be quite dear, but once you arrived then food, lodging, etc. would not be an issue. Please keep access to a computer so that we all know where you are and how you're doing. And really do consider coming. Hugs, Heide
