      I thought thought I was doing OK. I thought I was going to get through Christmas. Today I don’t know what has changed I just want to cry. I feel like a whole mess. I just want to go to bed and wake up on the 1st or not at all. Everything just feels to overwhelming. I don’t know how to cope.

      We left a while ago and are now in refuge. We have people to spend the big day with its just the run up watching all the families and I feel I have failed mine. I also have to testify against my husband in the near future and I am starting to panic about that too it all just feels too much.

      Hi In Need,

      Hugs I find it comes in waves on me coping and then the dread of the “Big Day” no big family day for me either. My friends are making plans I working out how to keep safe. I feel like a failed everyone at times, but we didn’t ask to be abused its them.

      The police as waiting for me to be in a safe place so we can go forward with charging him with what he’s done to me.

      Try and get through one thing at a time, Christmas, then the case good luck with it all. x
