Last May, my son and I left my common-law husband (on the advice of the local police). I now have a lot of resentment towards him. The problem is, since I left him, I have been gaining weight. I am at my highest weight ever and it's bugging me. For some reason, I am not really trying to lose weight and don't really even care about it anymore.
My ex-partner was abusive: emotionally, sexually and physically. I am lucky to no longer have him in my life and I just don't understand why I am packing on the weight. I thought I would be happy since leaving him, but I guess I am not doing that well. I am currently in counseling, but I don't feel it's going anywhere. The only thing the anti-depressants did was help me quit smoking.
