Hi Beanyboo,

I just wanted to show you some support. I am sorry that due to technical difficulties you are not getting as much support as you ordinarily would here on the forum today. It sounds like perhaps your social worker does not have a good understanding of domestic abuse and sexual abuse. Please do have a look at Rape Crisis’s website for some clear definitions of rape at http://www.rapecrisis.org.uk and please know that you can always ask for another social worker if you do not feel that your worker is helping you or has an understanding of your situation.

It sounds like you are much stronger than you think you are and you are realising that this relationship is not healthy or happy. He is an abuser and you deserve so much to be happy. Please know that you can phone the helpline at any time, they will not judge you but may help you to see options that you had not previously considered. Please also get in touch with your local Women’s Aid for some ongoing support as soon as you can.

Please keep posting to let us know how you are.

Best wishes,
