Last year I finally plucked up the courage to leave him. He beat me, called me nasty names and cut me off from my family and friends.

I have my freedom but little else. I only had a small amount of money when I left and nowhere to sleep but my car.

It’s too humiliating to get back in touch with my family and friends, and admit they were right all along – that my partner was controlling me.

I’ve even sold sex for money just to afford food and a proper night’s sleep.

I’m tempted to go back to my abusive partner. At least there I’d get a roof over my head.
