I have to say I was horrified by the comments made by Dennis Waterman during a recent interview with Johathan Ross, due to be aired within the next month! Domestic abuse is not only physical, it is also emotional and the scars stay long after the situation has ended. I lived in a war zone in my head for years afterwards and still I see the effects on some of my behaviour. It can take years to recover.
Having experienced Domestic Abuse myself, I find it really shocking to hear the other side of it. At the same time, I have found it so helpful to hear the responses from so many people, the outcry on Loose Women yesterday was fantastic.
I hope you find these videos helpful, I made them over 2 years ago, and feel it is so important to share them for people who, like me, had absolutely no idea what it was all about.
You can find the rest of this series at youtube/exploring domestic abuse. Please pass it on if you know anyone who may find it helpful.
