Dear 24yo girl
I'm sorry you're in this situation.
It's very sad when you can't trust your mum, to not be violent with you. I was in the same kind of situation.
Do you have stable housing now?
I'm just hoping there can be a way to organise some type of housing eg applying for a Housing Commission home.
The 1800RESPECT number has highly trained Counsellors and you can be put through to a Psychologist specific to your issues and they are SO HELPFUL, I cannot recommend them highly enough. You can phone anonymously but I never do. I gave my name and they've been able to keep records which has been SO helpful when I've called the next time.
I always thought it was the last time I would call.
I want you to know that you have OUR full support whilst you navigate through your life.
I would like to see you being able to be independent of your mum at some point.
Do you think you could do this?
There are LOTS of supports that can step in to help your mum and the RESPECT helpline can give you some numbers as well as the BB helpline.
I'm sure you have hopes and dreams for your own life and YOU need to be able to live these too.
You may need alot of support to understand what happened and how it has affected you.
What's happened is not your fault, you are not to blame. But with pure intent I want you to be aware that if you don't learn how to spot and distance yourself from abusive people, the cycle may continue.
You don't have to answer any of my questions at all, it may help us to help you if you can.
Please let us know how you're going.
