I managed to walk away from a crippling, mentally abusive relationship eight years ago. My daughter, after being subjected to 10 years of mental abuse by my partner suffers from severe clinical depression - I have to live with that forever as a mother who was too emotionally and mentally abused at the time, to get us out any sooner. I was strong before the relationship took that away from me but I found my strength again towards the end.
To leave, I had to shoulder a massive amount of the debt he had dragged us into (most of it hidden from me until he lost his high-paying job) so I could be free.
I've spent all this time paying off a large portion of the debt ($66,000 with interest included), and having to refinance every few years to try and make payments more manageable - I really need the last big chunk of it gone. It's torture and a constant reminder of a man I desperately want and need to leave in the past.
Please help me to put this demon debt to rest once and for all so I can fully move on with my life and also help my daughter to forget what I put her through by staying with a monster.
