Moon, KIP is right. This is about breaking old habits. It is so hard when you have no sense of normal after making such a huge step but as KIP says do not go back until you are protected. Yes he appears to have kept his promise so far but only because he wants to kill you into a false of security. If you go back without protection you will be in danger.

It is completely normal to want some thinking space away from your daughter but I remember the same sense of guilt. You need to look after yourself and have mental and physical breaks where you can.

You are strong enough to do this. We’re all here x
