Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

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 […]

  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 – […]

31st December 2016 ********** Dinner went from bad to worse. Surprise, surprise!! Not that I should have been anticipating anything else. Does he deliberately try to hurt me or does he just always manage to put his foot in it? The madras and pilau rice was nice, but I was too nauseated to eat much. […]

31st December 2016 The day is finally here. I feel sick to my stomach. Marcus has already text me three times and called me twice and it’s only half one in the afternoon. He’s waited so long for this, I suppose it’s only natural he wants to make sure that I don’t back out. I’ve […]

28th December 2016 A remarkably dull day, considering we are in the Christmas period. I’m still nervous about Saturday though. I’ve spent hours on the weekend researching gluten free foods to try and take my mind off of it. Why is gluten free food so expensive?? It’s beyond a joke! There’s no way GF breads […]
