Hi stomie and welcome back. I am very happy that things are coming together for you. It is amazing how we can see things when we are away from our abusers. I am happy that you are ready to continue with your healing.

Welcome back, stormie.

Always nice to be in company of other Michiganders here on the site. Sounds like the the past few months have been a very hectic, but healing time for you. It is very brave to leave what you know to move and to move on, so I am very happy for you.  You will find the site changed is some little ways, but it still has many understanding and supportive members. I wish you the very best.

Welcome back stormie!

I'm glad you feel good about your move,  and it sounds really healthy to be away from the day to day drama of your abusers. I hope things work out for your boyfriend to move there too if you want him to. We are still here,  I'm sure it's a bit different but it's still a supportive place where you can share how things are going.
