      My ex is staying the other side of town with some friends so I have been scared to leave home and walk anywhere. I’ve managed to walk around the corner a few times but whenever I’ve tried to walk down the high street since he left, I’ve had a panic attack…but today I did it! I walked the whole way, acknowledging my anxiety but not letting it take over – it feels like such a small thing but also a massive thing at the same time!! I’m not excited about doing it again, but at least I know I can do it!

      It is a massive thing and you should be so very proud. Now you know you can do it and it’s all fine. My anxiety and panic came from the abuse I was suffering at home and until I sorted that out I was just treating the symptoms and not the cause. Do you have support from women’s aid?
