oh my dear, I am so sorry and so proud of you for taking this huge step. It took a lot of courage and will continue to need a lot of courage during all of it.
Bravo for making this decision. I know life hasn't been good for you and your DH and it's time to put yourself in a position to heal your heart and feel good about everything again.
Perhaps some time apart will shake him up and you may decide to take get back together and perhaps not. However it goes, you know we are here for you in whatever way you need us to be.
I wish I lived nearby to be able to offer you refuge too.
You can do this, you have it within you. Yes it's scary but exciting too, your new life is starting. I am sure your self esteem has taken a beating but no more!
big hugs sweetheart and stand tall knowing we are right behind you, holding you up.
