This has been the hardest year of my life and I wanted to share some experience strength and hope
  1. In February I was diagnosed with advanced osteoporosis aged 47 and my prognosis is v bad
  2. I've been a single parent for 15 years and my ex used my depression about my health to carry on the brainwashing of my son that I was a terrible mother who then left to live with him and I haven't seen him since
  3. My ex then stole my dog
  4. I tried to kill myself and the doctors cannot explain how I survived
  5. I then dedicated myself to getting well. I also have fibromyalgia cfs and osteoarthritis
  6. In June I came off most of my meds including painkillers I had been on for 27 years (6 years of them being fentanyl)
  7. I got a lawyer for the first time in 16 years because I wanted to show my son that men cannot treat women the way my ex has
  8. My ex made it clear to the lawyer my son was accusing me of neglect and abuse and never wanted to see me again
  9. I decided to provide my ex and his lawyer every factual piece of evidence possible that these allegations are false and not press charges against my ex but find compassion and forgiveness instead
  10. I just celebrated 21 years sober
