Follow up to ‘No Justice = No Closure’
I forgot to add on the end of my post entitled 'No Justice = No Closure' that as a result of my ex kicking me in the face I am now losing my sight in my right eye and will go blind unless I get eye surgery which I can't afford.
I have to wear glasses to help my vision and the optician believes it is a result of what my ex did to me, not so much the actual boot to the face, but the speed at which my head went flying backwards and hitting the brick wall.
I don't think my ex even knows about any of this.
If his Mam wasn't ill I would have gone to the police by now, but I can't, any stress could be detrimental to her, and even if I did go to the police and it went to court, I'd be the one who looks evil, putting them through all that while his Mam is so ill. So I hope you can understand the position I am in.
I have spoken to the police anonymously who have said I would have case due to having a witness who picked me up that night who saw my injuries, plus photographs of my injuries. But I just can't do it to his poor parents.
If he didn't live with them it would be a different story.
But it isn't.
Any advice on how to get over this would be appreciated, as at the moment I don't ever want a relationship with anyone ever again and it hurts because I used to have so much love to give, but now I don't trust people, don't leave my house, and don't have any ambition any more. My own parents are struggling to support me as my Mother is also unwell, and my Dad has to work a lot.
Thanks for reading my story, I will keep checking the comments for help and I am on the waiting list for some Domestic Violence counselling but all this combined with my Bipolar, his lies and the stigma of Mental Illness is just too much to deal with. It's a small town and everyone knows everybody so it would be easy for folk to believe his lies as I said earlier, I am not ashamed of being Bipolar and openly talk about it. But I've never raised a finger to him apart from a slap in the face once when he was screaming in mine.
I never thought in a million years he would turn out like this.
I thought it would be happily ever after but I couldn't have been more wrong. x
