Hi Princess,

Welcome to the forum. What an incredibly terrible time you’ve had, it sounds like it’s a miracle you got out alive. I am so happy to hear that you are away from him now. You are incredibly brave to be going to court you should be proud of yourself. I think the best thing to do now would be to get as much support as you can. You have already made a huge step by coming on this forum and being honest and open. Another good place to start is by calling the National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247. They have trained support workers who can not only offer really useful information but also emotional support too. They are often very busy but if you leave a voicemail they will always call you back.

You have made the big steps by leaving and you should be very proud. Now you just need to deal with everything else that is happening one step at a time. Be kind to yourself and allow yourself time to breath. We are here to support you. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Best wishes
