Back in December 2015 I left my abusive husband due to domestic violence. He has had.no contact with our 3 children since then. Today I received a text to contact centre care to advise of address for postal of.mediation documents. I am so scared. He abused me and my eldest physically. He was emotionally, socially, financially abusive. My 13 yr old and myself suffer from ptsd due to the domestic violence. We are awaiting counselling at the.moment. it has taken nearly 5 years for anyone to help us. The children are now 13, 8 and a half and 5. The 5 yr old doesn’t know him. The 8 year old only remembers bad things. The 13 yr old is confused, scared and depressed. I don’t know what to expect. I habe tried so hard to keep the kids and myself safe. I don’t want to go back to where we were at first. All the nightmares, crying, hurt and pain. I am just after advice and reassurance that what I am feeling is normal. I feel sick in the stomach. It’s like all the memories I habe tried to forget have came back.
