Hi Marthamoo,

Really sorry to read that you are having such a tough time and suffering from headaches from all the stress. Have you thought about calling the National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247? I think talking to someone directly might really help you. Sometimes just getting everything off your chest and speaking to someone who understands make all the difference.

Try not to focus on what you haven’t managed to do (like speak to him before Christmas) and focus on what you think could help your situation. Like you mentioned, going no contact, despite how hard it would be, will make all the difference. You are not able to think about anything else at the moment and that is exhausting.

It’s really great that you have come on here to vent about how you are feeling. Keep talking to us. You are making important steps all the time.

Best wishes
