    …as I could really do with some support just now. I’ve been with my husband for almost 6 years, and he finally had to declare himself bankrupt earlier this year after struggling to repay £40,000 in gambling debts. I found out just before Christmas that he’s logged into my credit card account without my permission and transferred money over to his bank account. I am devastated, confused, angry and stunned. There’s obviously a lot more to my story, but that’s basically a summary of the current situation. I’ve asked him to leave, he’s staying at his mum’s, but I’m finding it particularly difficult to deal with everything tonight as I’ve had some angry texts from him. I only found this site last night, so I’ve only had a chance to read a little of the posts, but I would love some advice, support and understanding. I’ve never felt so alone.Never go to bed angry. Stay awake and plot your revenge! 🙂

    Hi Pinky
    W/b to the Forum. I understand the feeling of vulnerability and of course speaking in the group and communicating with the helpline is the safest way to remain anonymous. 
    I know that you want to talk more than just when the group is open though so I am glad you are back on here. I do have the capacity to read between the lines so don’t worry about updating information that would draw attention specifically to you. We are here to support you, not worry you.  
    You have a wonderful gift for humour – keep it burning but also let your sad feelings out. A bit of wallowing is fine and we would not be human if we didn’t do it.  We cannot be a tower of strength 24 hours a day but as long as we achieve it for some of the time our strength will grow.
    Nobody knows, better than you, how hard you are having to work at your future and how well you are doing.  Care for yourself by giving yourself praise where praise is due because you deserve it.
    I am sorry that I did not reply to your post of 6th March.  It is because I have had the pleasure of your company elsewere on the site.  Well done on having the courage to post again.
