one in a million!

Growing up in a military family, I’ve always known the comfort of a close-knit atmosphere. However, when my marriage of three years broke down in 2014, my life fell apart. I was completely blind to his manipulative behaviour. So, I was absolutely crushed when he suddenly announced that he was leaving me. It robbed me of everything. Things got so stressful that I even had a heart attack. Thankfully, I had a speedy recovery, but I couldn’t believe my life had ended up like this. Over the next few weeks, I fell into a dark depression. I’d always known a life of love, but now it was empty. After a couple of weeks, I couldn’t take it anymore. I just wanted to die. So, I rang a help line. ‘I don’t want to be here anymore,’ I cried. ‘Yes, you do, think…

you promise ?

Whipping off my top and bra, I stood in front of the mirror and snapped a quick selfie. Then, I attached the picture to a text message. I hope you like what you see, I typed, adding a winking emoji before sending it to my boyfriend Josh. You look amazing, he texted back right away. My confidence boosted, I then slipped off my pyjama bottoms and knickers, snapped another picture and clicked send. What about this one? I asked. I sent the pic with a winking emoji Gorgeous, Josh replied. It was July 2015, and Josh, then 18, and I had been dating for a few months. We went way back. Best mates since year three, Josh and I had always been really close. He supported me when my parents, Donna, now 42, and Roy, 57, split up, and we kept…

Our saucy relationship was in full swing, but just over a year later, by March 2016, I started to see the cracks... Josh became possessive over me, constantly texting to find out where I was, not allowing me to go out on my own. It was all getting a bit too intense for me - after all, I was only 19 and not really looking for such a serious commitment. Even his mate James started to notice the cracks. ‘He’s a bit controlling, isn’t he?’ he whispered one evening. It sent Josh into a rage. ‘You’re sleeping with James, aren’t you?’ he yelled later that night, furious. ‘You’re being ridiculous,’ I said, frustrated. I’d had enough, so the next day, I called him round to Mum’s place. ‘I’m sorry,’ I said. ‘But it’s over. I’m just so tired of arguing…
