Dear NewWings,

What an awful situation. Have you thought about going no contact with your mum and sister? I was in a very similar situation and I went no contact for over a year. When I eventually spoke to them again it was on my terms and has remained that way over the years that have followed. In a lot of ways it was a really positive thing to do as I felt that they did not care about me, only what I could give.

After my recent horrendous relationship, I have also learnt to say, ‘No!’. For some reason it has resulted in a little more respect for me.

Regarding your GP – why not move, secretly, to another surgery if there is another one in the area and tell no one?

Good luck x
