STORY CORNER: DIARY OF AN ABUSED LOVER (CHAPTER 34)

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

21st April 2017 Finding it extremely hard to concentrate at work. Keep making mistakes and staring into space. Am I doing the right thing? Why am I questioning myself so much? If I say I’ll do something, I should commit to it. Spent lunchtime picking at my food. My hunger has been replaced with dread. […]

14th April 2017 I feel sad. I had my last session with Nikki today. She’s hopeful that I can turn my life around. I hope I can too. It’s gonna be odd not talking through things every Friday evening any more. I feel a little unsure of myself. I know she’s given me explicit instructions […]

31st March 2017 I only have 2 more weeks left with Nikki. I do feel sad about it – she was great to talk to about my problems. I told her what happened to me yesterday on the train. She thinks that he is perhaps trying to remind me of how we first met. She […]

4th March 2017 The British Museum is absolutely HUGE!! I really loved it – I think it’s my second favourite museum after Le Louvre. We did arrive later than I had initially hoped, around 1:30pm. Yep, that was my fault. I took longer than usual getting ready. I’m trying to look after my appearance again […]

13th February 2017 It’s absolutely great to be back at work!! ? Getting back into a familiar routine can really be a pleasant and welcome distraction. I got up super early and left home at 7:30am to make sure I wouldn’t bump into Marcus. I knew it would be highly unlikely I would see him […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

9th February 2017 I arrived at counselling all flustered. And sweaty. And late. I was thinking so furiously about my dilemma with little Elijah and Marcus that I missed my train stop and had to back-track, only to start panicking that I was late, which caused me to set off in the wrong direction – […]

31st January 2017 I DID IT!! 🙂 I made it to the corner shop with the help of my little sister. I swear, sometimes I really do forget I’m the older sibling. We were supposed to leave at 11am but I kept delaying it until 2pm. Surprisingly, my sister was extremely patient with me. It […]

20th January 2017 I really need to return to work, but I’m still too petrified to leave the house. I really wouldn’t be surprised if I ended up losing my job, but I have to focus on getting myself in the right frame of mind. My parents know something is up – now they think […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

6th January 2017 I can’t really face anything at the moment, not even writing everyday in my diary. I just spend my days staring blankly into space. I haven’t been back to work – I’ve just said that I’m really ill – not that you would think any differently from looking at me. I’ve blocked […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

  1st January 2016 My head is all over the place. What has happened in the last 12 hours? I’m seriously doubting my own judgement here. Is Marcus right? Did I work myself up so much that I misinterpreted his actions? I can’t really bring myself to say the word again. He is right – […]
