Hi there, my name is Martha. I am new to ivillage and of course, these forums.
I just left my husband of 12 years on 8/8 because any time I tried to do anything my ideas, likes, thoughts were always shot down. He'd critisize me, tell me I wasn't good enough, call me names, even went as far as to control me for 12 years not letting me go places, see people, or have friends. Even limited me from going to the doctor... which on 8/20 I had a massive heart attack. My main artery was 100% blocked. I had a stent put in.
I am wanting a divorce. It is hard for me because I am an only child and I have had to move in with my parents (which is 4 hours away from my soon to be ex). My mom busts her butt working everyday as a merchandiser for a flower farm that puts plants in Home Depots. My dad is a retired electrician (vietnam vet) who has LOTS of health issues too.
I am 34 and my whole world is turned upside down. The doctors tell me I still have blockages of 60%, 50%, and 40% but they think the pills they have me on will take care of it in time.
I am stressed and scared... and my esteem for myself is at an all time low.
Well, that's my story. Thanks for listening.
