God knows if this will actually work but here goes.
I finally had the courage to kick my emotionally abusive boyfriend out of my life in October. We have been together for 2 years and shared a flat for just over that. He is a “musician” and a “producer” and does a lot of freelance work and touring. This meant he didn’t have a lot of money and did a lot of touring. Because of this I would pay most of the bills because he was away a lot. They were apparently my problem to deal with even though he had begged to move in together in the first place. I also took out a credit card in my name for him to use because his credit was so bad ( as I’m writing this I now my own stupidity, I swear it’s so embarrassing) and he rinsed that pretty quick.
He told me me I was fat and useless and ugly and all the other wonderful things a boyfriend should never get away with saying. He cut me off from my family and friends and he made me get rid of my cat.
Once a friend from work finally helped me see the relationship for what it is I ended things and kicked him out but he is refusing to pay back the money he owes me. I know I will never see it from him and I’m doing everything I can to pay it back. It’s becoming a massive burden on my life and I feel like I will never pay it all off. I have just under £1500 left and I could really use the help. I have no one to turn too and my credit is screwed because of him though so I can’t take out a loan. Please help. I need a fresh start and I can’t do that without this looming over me.
