So less than twenty four hours after Michael Ebsworth arrived to live with me, he left while I went to a neighbour because he was sleeping.

Last night he told me could never be without me. I met him when he lived next door. I thought him boring. One night he got to my bedroom because he wanted to talk to me.

I accepted an apology on the grounds that he help me put things together that I needed around my home. This led to him seducing me. His ‘partner’, unaware of all this, began to be malicious to me because she wrongly assumed I had sent messages on Instagram. I never saw these messages.

Mike then pursued a relationship with me, which was very happy until we were found out. He then lied to me,

Recently I started getting emails from his account but I thought it was the woman, toying with me.

Mike arrived last night. He kept saying it was my home, but I had already assured him I was happy to change anything.

I have lived with depression on and off for many years. Right now I feel I’m looking into my left shoe with my right foot. I’m so in love with this man.

I am so low. So hurt. So betrayed. I can’t see the way ahead. I wish I had never withdrawn my complaint to the police about the sexual assaults. I would never have had the opportunity to have feelings for him.

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.

Your so much better off, even though you cant see it right now. Plus hell be back, you’ll just have to decide if you can be strong enough to say no, I’m better than this. Find yourself a great man who treats you with respect, join an online dating club. Get over him with some one else. But you cant have David, lol, hes mine even tho6he is one of the best men in the world. True, honest, respectful, living kind and a wonderful father. You will fu ind your own Dave

You can meet men, and there will be someone who will see thru your illness. David and I 100% believe there is someone for everyone, don’t settle, that devalues you. Try match (we met that way) or some other online dating (and be honest on you illness, that way you speaking the truth from the beginning) don’t be all doom and gloom, but be honest and tell them your so much more than your illness, you have a lot to offer and hope to share it with someone. I know how scary it is to put yourself out there and think no one will want you back. But the right prince will come along and you have to be patient for that. Your probably feeling really low right now, but that means taking a step up is the way to go. When I felt like that in the past, I made a plan, put it in writing with where I was and where I wanted to be, then filled in the in between and kept moving toward it. If I could get out my past abusive marriage and all the baggage that came with that and end up where I am today, than anyone can do it. Wishing you love and prayer Chrissie.
