To update everyone, I have moved out. I am in my own apartment. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, but it has been wonderful. At the end of the day, I can go home and relax. I don’t have to wonder what my refusing cheater will be mad about when I get home. I can change clothes and actually transition from my very stressful job to my home. I now have a refuge, and a place where I can rest and recharge.
I don’t have to apologize for breathing. If I am a bit drowsy, I can take a little nap. I am not criticized for everything I do. If I am hungry, I can get something to eat without being questioned. If I am watching TV, no one comes in with a mean look and demands that I change the channel.
Then there is my job. I am happy to go to work, and I can really concentrate on what I am doing. I guess because I can now relax at home, I can do my job more effectively.
Lastly, there is my health. I am sleeping much better, and I am not eating unhealthy foods. I guess I am not eating out of emotion. But I have actually lost over 10 lbs.
So I am just in a much better place, both physically and emotionally.
