    Hi everyone

    I’m new to the forum but I left my abusive relationship a while ago now. I left and distracted myself with work and kids, eventually a new relationship and just life in general. It was only last year that I realised I probably needed some help to come to terms with the abuse I went through. So I’ve been getting counselling and just really coming to terms with everything that happened, but with bringing up those feelings I’m starting to feel very isolated from my friends and family again and I don’t want to give that power to my ex – so thought I would say hello and hopefully we can all help each other 🙂

    Friends and family can sympathise only so far, so come on here whenever needed.

    Hi Bubbles4,

    I just wanted to welcome you to the Forum. I’m glad that you’re getting some counselling and reaching out for support. Unpicking the abuse you’ve been through can be really difficult, and the healing process can take time, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction. Do keep reaching out for support and posting on the Forum whilst you’re dealing with all of this.

    Best wishes,
