Wow Sim, he sounds like a right s*d, I don''t blame you for fighting him every inch of the way. Good Luck, I hope you get things sorted quickly.
I know what benefits I''m entitled to, am just having to fight damn hard for them I''m not alone, if you look on any ME/CFS/FM forum you''ll find people in the same boat. I don'' think my ex would be as awful as yours, but then again, I wouldn''t put anything past him right now, he''s a stranger. I know he really doesn''t want me under ''his'' roof, so I suspect he''ll think of a few things to try & push me out. I''ll remember not to leave my toothbrush in the bathroom lol
I''ve not noticed any difference with family & friends. I''m not close with my family so they''ve been as normal & my friends don''t know the full extent of everything. I''ve not told many people. Everyone lives miles away anyway, so there''s not much they can do & I don''t want them to feel crappy cos they can''t help out. He was pretty much my closest person. I miss that side of him, the phone calls & making plans. I don''t miss much else.
