It should be so very hard to need to visit your ex-boyfriend/abuser sometimes experience these panic then assaults. I’d like you to understand that it’s totally normal to help you be having these responses. It really is completely normal to be frightened and terrified for this individual whenever abuse is related to him. It should have now been actually tough and scary to need to see him and also to revisit that right amount of time in your daily life.
It seems you sa like you may have some PTSD from your past abusive relationship by the fear
