    Today I had my first appointment at the job centre. I am an absolute wreck but sucked it up and went. I got there and immediately had a melt down – too many people, men, was worried about what would happen. As soon as I explained I was a new DA survivor that had just moved into the area the staff were amazing! I just wanted to let you know that there are lovely people out there xx

    Thank you ladies.

    It warms my poor battered heart to know there’s kindness around (and the fact that you are all dealing with stuff too!) x*x

    Well done. I would recommend that people tell the job centre they are survivors, if they can. I was allocated to a woman who specialised in helping survivors get jobs.

    They’re being amazing. They’ve offered me access to this well being course and I don’t have to sign on again until December. I’m hoping by then I’ll be a bit stronger. I feel so unwell at the moment but I’m guessing it’s just stress and anxiety 🙄 xxxx
