    Hi, I recently separated from my husband of 9 years. We have a 6 year old son. He was physically and sexually abusive in our relationship and I am struggling emotionally to deal with the guilt with what my son has encountered. I never told any of my family or friends during this time as I thought life would get better, it doesn’t and I cant believe what an idiot I was to think it could. I am trying my best to help my son with professionals. Would be nice to meet some new friends…

    Please don’t feel bad. I know its difficult, but you weren’t responsible for your ex’s actions. And the important thing is you’re out of the situation now.

    Have you talked to your friends and family about what went on? This really isn’t a burden you can carry on your own. And you could probably benefit from some counselling yourself. I’m going through it now, and it really does help.

    You are much stronger than you think, and you and your son will get through this together.

    Sending you lots of love x

    As  above. Dont feel bad. You did what you could do at the time and now youve moved on. Take that as a positive. Take what advice you can and take any help offered. x
