    I am disabled and I left my emotionally abusive relationship.im in a hotel and alone. I am being overwhelmed with emotion. I am not sure what to do and where to start. I’ve emailed and spoke to all the usual charities. I just keep having anxiety and panic attacks.
    Does this get better.
    I feel like so confused as he was my carer but emotionally messed me up.

    Hey well done for taking that first step. Yes it absolutely does get better. As humans we crave for what is our ‘normal’, even if it’s abuse. So give yourself time and space and start building that support network around you. My mental and physical health have improved so much I can’t begin to tell you. The first while out of the relationship is so very hard but I promise if you keep to zero contact and give things time to settle down you will thrive again. We are everything without them they are nothing without us x

    Hey Harley,
    Firstly, well done on taking back your life.
    It will feel lonely and scary right now and you’ll be feeling all the emotional pain of a break up plus getting your head around being abused by someone who should have loved you. I’m so sorry you’re in this situation right now but from here the only way is up.
    You need to have some support to help you through this. Can family help? Can you stay with a friend or family member? Have you let WA and your GP know you’re current circumstances?
    You must try and get emotional support from someone so you can talk. Keep posting here too. Above all, and this is hard when you’re feeling alone and vulnerable, you must keep no contact with your abuser as he will try all the tricks to lure you back. Stay strong x
