mixed-up mum

Hi Falling Skys – good to hear from you – thank you for reading my post and for taking the time to reply.

I never kept a diary as such – too scared to in case he ever found it- but in the worst times – my darkest days – my moments of greatest despair – I found it a great release to get it all down on paper when there was no one else to talk to.

I would pull out my bottom drawer and hide what I’d written under there. I don’t think he ever found that hiding place, but he did used to search through all my drawers and beside cabinet – I was never quite sure what he was looking for but nothing was safe from his prying eyes.

I hope you find the strength to read what you have written – we are always here for you to listen, sympathise and advise if we can.

Take care. X
