Hello Jenn,

your not alone any more we are here with.

as for moving forward it takes a long time, so take baby steps in recovering from what you've been through each day at a time or hour by hour you will get by.

how old are your children/ child?

hello Jenn and welcome along. As "I'm doing this" has said above, the way to move forward is in small steps and sometimes you feel as if you are going backwards. From what I understand you are saying that you were abused by another family member, not the father of your child, is that right? Are you safe from this person now?

I am safe yes abused in past now trying to survive alone can't be in that situation again terrified honestly... I many of times was removed from family House. Truthfully I wish I didn't live in fear or go circles anymore all I need an want is a smile

Hello again Jenn

So you are safe from the person but you still live in fear? do you mean that what has happened to you has made you feel anxious all the time? I wonder if you have had any help with this, from your doctor, or from a support worker or counsellor, it is not good if you are still very anxious even though you are now safe. Have you some friends nearby too?

Hi Jenn

Welcome to the forum.  Being alone is scary and lonely but infinitely better than being controlled and abused.  Well done for all you are doing.  I hope you can get help to continue moving forward.

Meanwhile I hope you will find this site a source of support and friendship.  There are a lot of friendly, caring people on here, some of which have been through similar.

Love Gem
