I have been married for 40 years. My generation believe that once you are married you should stay together no matter what. I thought I might leave once the children left home but by then it seemed too difficult and I resigned myself to life at home. It was ‘only’ emotional abuse after all, I wasn’t in danger.
My GP suggested I speak to Dash – they really understood and didn’t put pressure on me to make decisions. Just knowing I had Debbie to listen to helped me feel stronger. I know I have options now and have started to confide in my children. I am feeling less depressed and starting to think about my future. It’s never too late!
