I just wanted to let you all know how I was getting on and the decisions I've made. I spent the day searching for new places to live and I found I could afford it. Just. I looked into benefits, and I don't get much, but I do know that I would be able to make it on my own. So doe smy partner. I confronted him and told him we had to go to councelling and on no uncertain terms did I find his excuses plausable or acceptable. I removed my engagement ring. This, he knows, is a big big deal for me. I refused to remove it for my c section, and hadn't taken it off since he first put it on there. Since this has happened, we've done a lot more talking. He appreciates how close we came but I do not thik he sees much wrong in his actions. Hopefully this is where counselling comes in. I have to be able to look my son in the eye and tell him "I did everything I could." I would like to thank all of you who advised me, in such a supportive manner, and had such lovely things to say to comfort me. This has made me so much stronger. I feel really glad I am a part of this support network on line, and again want to say "thank you," from the bottom of my heart. Fingers crossed for the future hey!
