Hi, I am 44 & a mother of 2. I was married for 21 years until I split from my husband February 2013 because of his controlling, jealous personality. He found new love within 3 months so a divorce was on the cards. In August he broke into the family home at 4am and attacked me while I was asleep leaving me for dead with severe head injuries. Fortunately our 18 year old heard the noise and saved me. I was rushed to hospital & my husband committed suicide 4 hours later as he told my son he couldn't go to prison!!
Since then we have discovered that he had been planning & researching his attack for 6 weeks. He'd arranged my funeral, written his funeral speech, applied for his visa to USA, opened new bank accounts, obtained new drivers licences etc.. He was going to try and start a new life after taking my life. It makes me feel sick just typing this at his utter selfishness. I am grieving his death as we had many great years, but he planned to kill me and I just don't know how Im supposed to deal with this. Any suggestions gratefully received. Xx
