My ex always raped me when I was ill. Every single time. Luckily I didn’t have a child with him. Perhaps you could celebrate your child’s birthday in a completely different way? I remember someone at Christmas writing about establishing new traditions. I found this really helpful and created new ways to spend Christmas Eve – Boxing Day:I found it really worked and I felt really happy on the days and now I look back. I made sure I took photos so we can remember new good times.

I hope the day goes OK.
