Welcome back! I'm glad you made it out of that situation. It sounds terrifying. But I'm concerned for you and the child if he's still going to be able to be part of your life with a court ordered custody arrangement?
Hello! =) I'm new here, so we haven't met, but you sound like a really strong, positive person. I've been through a similar event. Basically, my father was upset about my mom getting a restraining order against him, and when he picked me and my brothers up for custody (I brought my Pug along, too), he sped off and tried to get hit by cars, speeding and almost swerving into them across the streets and freeway. I called my mom, and he took my phone away. My mom called and tried to get a police escort to help her pick us up (since she had the restraining order), but no one would do anything, so I had to stay there the rest of the weekend, and I had to go to court repeatedly for about two years before even being able to have the option of not going with him anymore. Everyone (in the court) I spoke to seemed to think I was lying, like something like that could never happen, and up until reading your post, I think I really have believed that.
OK, i read your 2nd ruinous/terrifying experiences (I think is rite) but most of all perhaps best underlined in the long term as just terribly UNLUCKY these 2 big mishap relationships. Sad you've had to go thru that whole scenario again with father #2 (the 2nd-ex you were married with is it this time? So yah ex-#2 another, not the old love?) in any case so misunfortunate I bet in some way, at some point, you almost wish there was a miscarriage in a way, esp whilst realizing a non male based new sexuality?) .. Anyhoo, sticking with reality of course, and what IS, does #2 live anywhere near u now per not so lucky chance? Have you even got as far as sussing out an anonymous residence or is it more a case of putting all faith of the legal & law kind in the restraining order? At least you are self-sufficient for wot its worth anyhow & one wud guess a survivor as a result, but I suppose probably you still nontheless have the feeling of "now what" even tho time has passed.. Fair to say ?? Just hope u are spared any physical abuse again and that you can maintain support from some place.. (including friends/family.. Thank goodness you appear have a supportive family)
I'm currently helping an ex-gf (8yrs ago) as she is a single mother, just got out of alcohol rehab, has an abusive family and ex-husband and is doing her best to raise her kids and be positive. We're very close and she has been through so much and is finally getting some much deserved breaks. So chin up, all will be well
