      Hi all,

      To the women who have supported me through this horrendous period, encouraged me to go to the police and ultimately got out of my nightmare, thank you. I couldn’t have done it without you. I can’t express what you and this forum has done for me in realising that I was being abused and taking the action I needed to take to get out.

      I’m not going to sugarcoat it. This has been an extremely difficult period and I have a long road ahead. But today I had my first taste of what life can be like at the other side.

      I went to visit my friend today for lunch. A friend I wasn’t allowed to have previously because she annoyed my ex. I didn’t have to ask permission first to go to lunch. I wasn’t told before I left ‘why are you wearing that it looks hideous’. I wasn’t given a deadline of when I have to be home. I wasn’t punished before and after for the fact I went out to visit a friend.

      You know what, today felt pretty good! Xx

      Welcome to freedom LifeBegins 🙂

      And well done on taking that huge leap to do it. We all just nudged you in the right direction, ultimately, it’s you that had to take the leap, and we’re so glad you did. Now you know why we all left!
