STORY CORNER: DIARY OF AN ABUSED LOVER (CHAPTER 28)

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

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 […]

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 – […]

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 […]

24th December 2016 Seriously, where does the time go??? I can still remember last Christmas like yesterday – getting ready to make the cheesecake and jam roly poly. No doubt everyone who is coming is expecting the same deserts this year. I want a change though. I haven’t told anyone yet. I really hate my […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

21st December 2016 I’m not sure I’m doing the right thing. I can’t back out now – he’ll think I’m a tease! I really don’t want to mess him around. Why did I say ‘as soon as possible’?! Stupid, stupid, STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How long does that give me to wrap my head around it? A few […]

20th December 2016 Where should I even start???!!!! I’m so glad I’m by myself right now. I need space to think. Work (the last day of work until the new year) finished at 2pm today to prepare for the Christmas party. I got ready from home, went to Marcus’ place where he was waiting for […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

16th December 2016 Right. I’m nearly ready and prepared. I managed to bag a personal shopper appointment tomorrow at 5:30pm. The shops are open late anyway so I’m hoping (fingers crossed!) that Saturday will be the last of this awful clothes hunt. If all goes well, that should give Marcus two full days to find […]
