It started with stress at work

It started with stress at work and then led to depression, I had a few bereavements one after the other.

I’ve been in 3 violent relationships one after another.

I was abused by my father and blamed myself. I now have an eating disorder. I keep attracting abusive, controlling violent men. My husband kept attacking me.

My community care worker referred me to Next Link. I feel safe here now and the women in the house and support workers have been excellent and given so much support.

I hope to be settled in my own place and work again and regain my confidence and self esteem and start a new life.
