I walked into a police station yesterday and I reported persons for the offences I pointed out in my last blog.
I have never ever been so scared in all my life, I honestly felt like a small boy walking up the steps of the police station, but I did it!
The officer who dealt with me was both caring, sympathetic, attentive but above all and so importantly professional to the end, she made it a calm place to talk about what I have held up for so very very long, I swear if there was not a screen between us I would have hugged her.
I'm proud I did it, I am happy I did it and now justice can prevail.
I have an appointment to attend and make full statements 8 days and have put a support system in place straight after to protect myself and the emotions I will no doubt be feeling.
For those who who suffer like I did, before taking such a step please make sure you have a support system around you as your about to tell all to a stranger.
Silent no more.
