Hi Tammy

It really sounds like you have been through a tough time, and I'm sorry for all that you have had to experience. I would love to help or advise you, but I feel completely inadequate to do so. I'm a humble exercise expert. Is there not perhaps someone you could go and speak to about this? A psychologist or counsellor, perhaps. I have had friends and family who went through similar experiences and they benefitted greatly from this. So that would be my advice, I wish I could do more.

Good luck, and hang in there.
