It's for the best though. My girls are still young enough that they won't remember any of this and they will no longer be exposed to the manipulative, emotionally destructive and physically dangerous environment any longer.
I am currently selling everything in my apartment to hopefully make a bit of money and then will be moving into my mom's house. I feel so much relief to know she is there for me and my girls. She and my fabulous sister! I love them both so.
So, there it is. I'm sorry if it isn't as detailed as some had hoped but it's a deeply personal situation and I (at this moment) don't care to share it with the whole world. Maybe someday. Wish me luck and peace of mind and conscience please! Thanks.
