I'm due to start the freedom programme tomorrow morning and am very nervous I was referred by my social worker as my children were put under child protection due to my partner having a breakdown and beong sectioned and also the dv that led up to this Anyway, if u have been on it how was it? I'm not really sure what to expect, ive been reading the book they gave me but cant really put him under any category they mentioned sort of bits from each
Thanks, I'm beginning to see things a bit clearer im realising that things in our relationship are not right Hes very depressed, so he goes weeks and weeks where all is good the only real complain is hes a lazy bum who doesnt want to help around the house/with the kids etc, then he has weeks hes great with the kids. But then he has days hes really depressed and says hurtful things doesnt do anything to help and just wallowed in self pity
But I know I still use excuses for hes behaiviour I worry about him constantly when hes like this, but at the same time I feel so angry, why do I have to put up with this I just want a happy relationship with him
Still so nervous about this programme, and not sure it's for me, will have to see tommorow!
Completely worth it! You will be in a group and all of you will be nervous. The facilitator should be well trained and understand that you will all be very nervous. You don't have to do or say anything just sit, listen and get to know your group.
Hopefully first session will be a coffee and biscuit session. You will not be asked anything direct and remember you can always say your not ready to talk but would like to stay.
