Recovery Toolkit Programme (RTK)
I have 2 girls, after being with my partner for 5 years, we broke up in 2014. I was left with 2 girls and being a working mum. In the middle of 2014 I underwent Domestic Abuse by the girls’ dad.
After this I was left feeling worried, vulnerable and scared. Through the period of June to December, I went through a lot; it was all a blur to be honest. I was put forward for the Recovery Toolkit (RTK) for support.
I was undecided to go, I wend on the first day and I was nervous. As the weeks went by and I made myself go, I found a lot of help, ways of dealing with my feelings and ways to feel positive about how far I have come.
Although I still struggle with depression and my 2 girls, I have found ways to cope and be a stronger person. I now live for each day, enjoy my children, love work and if any problems arise, I take a step back, think about the issue and deal with it accordingly without stressing or worrying.
I am thankful to the RTK for helping me through my difficult time and making me a stronger person.
