I agree with the ladies above hun…our silence protects them, it doesn’t protect us.

I’d ring 101 and talk your fears through with them, they may be able to put a ‘flag’ on your number/location so if you needed to call 999 then they’re with you rather quickly.
Also, they may be able to provide a sort of protection detail – I once had a plain-clothes officer pick me up from the train station, take me to my location, and then stayed outside before taking me back to the train station.

And definitely stay with someone at all times, it doesn’t have to be someone huge and burly to protect you, just having someone there would hopefully be deterrent enough so that if he did turn up, he might think twice about kicking off or attempting to intimidate you. And also, even if something does happen, you have a witness to it.

I think it’s a good idea to make a safety plan so that you know exactly what to do and where to go if something happens or if you feel in danger.

Please let us know how you get on Moon. xx
