      I’m so drained but I’ve waited so long for this. Her specialism is domestic abuse. We talked about how I met him I feel sick it’s bought it all back. I knew it would make me feel this way and I know it needs to get worse before it gets better. I hate him x

      Hi Positive,

      It’s great you have a new counsellor and even better she is a domestic abuse specialist. I have just started counselling too so can relate to how hard it is to talk about it all, it makes me feel sick thinking I was in a relationship/manipulationship with an absolutely, truly vile, horrible person and had no idea. It will be painful but hopefully help you to heal and learn from the whole awful experience.

      I never realised I was in an abusive relationship with a dominater till the penny dropped once all the fog had lifted. Omg I seen how truely evil he was .I also studied the power and control wheel .. I’ve learnt so much I never want to relive that ever again .. Keep strong ladies X

      It’s really drained me and taken it out of me. I have snoozed on the sofa most of the day just felt so lethargic didn’t get out of bed until 12p. I think its really hit me talking to a professional face to face it’s awful saying it all out loud. I rested as much as I could today because it was really tough. I understand that we have to start from the beginning and I have to talk about how we first met and what it was like but the thought of talking about him in a positive light absolutely violates me!!!! I’ve frlt so many emotions I’ve felt angry, heartbroken, devastated, pure betrayal, numb and in utter and complete shock that someone could be this evil to me. It’s going to get worse before it gets better I keep saying that I need fo get this dirt out of my system it’s good for me to do this. X
