fighting demons

Natalie Noe, 33 As my date brushed his blond hair out of his face, I noticed a speck of gold in his blue eyes. ‘Call me Matthew,’ he smiled. It was late 2012, and Terrance Lee Harris, who everyone called Matthew, had asked me out for dinner. Then 23, he was charismatic, handsome. I felt like the luckiest girl in the restaurant. We chatted for hours about our love of health and fitness. And Matthew opened up about becoming addicted to painkillers after injuring his back playing football as a teenager. ‘I’m finally clean though,’ he promised. After a whirlwind three weeks, he moved in. We’d work out together, go for walks, play music. In November 2014, we married, before relocating hours away so Matthew could work for his family business. In April the following year, I fell pregnant. ‘I can’t wait,’ Matthew…

Verified sauce An empty egg carton makes a great fridge storage saver for sauce bottles that tend to drip and make a mess. I like to keep one inside my fridge door, and they can be replaced regularly. Irene Emerson, Grimsby Sow good After sowing my precious bonsai tree seeds, I put an onion net over the pot and secure it with an elastic band. Now, my seeds are safe from birds and squirrels.

a life on pause

Jessie Shedden, 34, Cwmbran Lying in bed at 9pm on a Saturday, I listened to the hubbub of activity outside my window. Music, the smell of BBQs wafting, laughter. I wish I could join them. I wished I could enjoy carefree days with friends – but I had to be up at 3am for church and I had no mates. You see, I was the fourth generation of my family born into the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, formally known as the Exclusive Brethren. A religious order with 50,000 members worldwide. Aged 15, I lived in Yeovil with my parents and seven older siblings. But while our home looked normal outside, inside it was anything but. No TV, radio, computer, storybooks, posters or pop music. Banned for their ‘corrupting’ influence. I was homeschooled, not allowed to socialise with non-members, or to…
