Over the Years I lost all of my friends. He would tell me they were a bad influence on me, did they even really like me? He embarrassed me so much in front of them many backed away from my situation. I was left with no one. I had a very fractured relationship with my family and for years I thought that was all I deserved. When I decided I didn’t want my lovely children to grow up feeling that way I finally phoned Wirral Women & Children’s Aid. Even that first phone call put so much into perspective for me. And I walked away from my previous unhappy, lonely life with an abusive partner once and for all.”Best thing I ever did.
