I was with a really abusive guy a few years ago. Hard to explain on here but it was pretty bad. I ended up pregnant with twins who I miscarried after being beat up. After this he was obsessed with getting me pregnant again (I think he thought I'd never leave then however it's what made me see sense). When I was 7 weeks pregnant with my gorgeous wee boy he beat me up for the last time, he did things like put his fingers up my nose and pull back, burst my lip and punched my stomach saying "it's not too late to get rid of it". Vial vial guy. This incident went to court. He was found guilty and got a 18 month community pay back order. I chose to take nothing further to court as I struggled mentally to cope with the stress of even taking one to court. It wasn't easy. I have PTSD as a result of this relationship and have been left in £7000 of debt. My lawyer applied for criminal injuries on my behalf. Not that I even want a lot of money. I literally want to pay off the debt to truly start a fresh. Has any one else been through this process? It's so intense. It was 2 years ago it was first applied for and honestly I don't know how much more info I can give. They have police reports, gp records, psychology reports, women's aid and Eva notes too! How much longer do you guys think it will take and do you think I will even get anything? I can't cope with the intensity of it much longer. It's really setting me back. I guess my question is will it even be worth it. Oh and i live in Scotland if that's relevant.
