      I never really realised how it is possible to be surrounded by people but feel so alone. Now I do.
      I just feel so helpless. I can hear them downstairs all normal and I’m upstairs not allowed to be with them. I want to cry out for help but I just can’t. Sometimes I think if I was to do something to myself then surely someone will have to help me but I can’t do that to my kids and I’ll just be attention seeking. I see people at work and they talk about their lives and I come home to this and I know i must have done something wrong and I need to change but I don’t know how.

      Hi loveis,
      I’m sorry you’re experiencing this.
      It’s really hard so well done for reaching out this evening. Could you discuss this with your GP tomorrow or a trusted friend?
      You haven’t done anything wrong and you don’t deserve what you’re going through, it’s how abusers want us to feel. They knock our confidence and self esteem to make themselves feel better.

      I just feel so sad and I’m sorry because I know you must be experiencing something too but I just don’t know what to do. I want to scream and cry but I don’t want anyone to hear me.
      I just went to try and do (detail removed by Moderator), I’m just trying to do the right thing.
