Hi @Mysticrose. Have you gone to social services? Hopefully another round of stimulus checks should be coming soon too. And yes, I think it's worth leaving abusers. Please PM me anytime. I've been there.
You escaped an abusive toxic life, I think that is an amazing thing to have done. You have every reason to be proud of yourself. Are you happier? I bet you are and glad you made the decision you did. I hope this month is going well for you. Check in with us, okay?
