I am at home today, alone and have an infection so I am choosing to look after myself and not leave the house today, don’t really feel up to it. I’m going over possible ramifications of what’s happened recently, which I don’t want to keep putting on here, and finding it hard to switch off. I’ve tried watching rubbish and now am about to get under the duvet as I’m so tired. I’m trying to look at this as the way I would feel after ending any relationship, although it is more complicated.
I’m treating it as something I have to get over, which it is and I’m looking at months or more down the line to a place where I may ‘feel better’.
I hope you are starting to feel better today. Ending any relationship is hard and upsetting but a relationship where you have experienced abuse is even more so. Please keep looking after yourself and get plenty of support from your local Women’s Aid group and from the Helpline.
