Hi TowerOfSong,

Really sorry to hear that you are dreading the Christmas period so much. Are you sure you are not putting too much pressure on yourself by seeing your ex partner and all his family? I know you feel that it’s the right thing to do for your daughter but sometimes we can get so built up with what we think we ‘should’ do and actually what maybe would be good for your daughter is for you to be happy and relaxed this year.

Christmas can be a very stressful time of year for many people. Continue posting about how you feel, also it might help you to call the National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247 and speak to someone there about your situation. Remember that they can offer you emotional support so try not to worry too much about not having your support worker.

We are all here for you too. You are not alone.

Best wishes
