New here- in need of lots of advice!

Hi! 5 weeks ago, I left my abusive husband after 21 years of violence. I am used to having a $600.00 monthly grocery budget to a $200.00 monthly budget. I am scared of what lies ahead.

    Well I'm really new here and your post happens to be the first one I read. First off take a deep breath and relax a little. I was you some 24 years ago. I was out and on my own with three small children, a monthly income of $350 and an apt we rented for $250 a month. Be strong, take one day at a time and you can work through this. There are so many tools like this site available to help you out that I didn't have it nearly makes me jealous. I know things will be hard but better that you are out on your own and building a new life then to have stayed in the one you left. You are a strong woman and you can walk through this, there will be hurdles but you will make it. We made it and life is so good now and has been for the past 20 yrs. Chinn up dear!
