Thank you!

I’m glad I found this website, I haven’t really been able to share my experience of being in an abusive relationship, even though it was nearly ten years ago. I’m still living with a lot of psychological scars and my friends and family don’t seem particularly comfortable in discussing it with me. The general view for many of them is that if it’s not discussed, it didn’t happen. I’ve also had the classic line “the relationship only lasted a couple of years, how much damage could it have done?”
