Its taken me a long time to make this thread, about 2 weeks I think.
The reason I didn't want to write it is because most people on here know I was abused for a short time before, and I guess I didn't want to admit that I had let it happen again.
I had been seeing this guy, for only abouttt a week before this all started. Before we got close I thought he was the sweetest guy alive, but he didn't appear to like me. So I thought that was it and tried to forget it. However he started to show an interest and we started going out. Shortly after we were together fairly late at night and we got into a petty argument and he punched me. I didn't even think that much of it at the time. I just came home cried and got over it thinking it was a one off. Turned out it wasn't and things have only got worse over the last few days. I managed to tell a close friend but made her swear not to tell anyone, and she hasn't.
I have been getting really awful pains in my stomach, which I think are caused by him and I want to go and make sure everything is ok but I don't want to have to explain how it happened.
I know you may all think that I should know by now that telling someone is the best thing to do, but last time I had to go through telling my family this stuff was hell, it caused so much stress and upset. Although I know that I should tell someone, for me to tell them this kinda thing has happened all over again will be so hard. Also they will think I have done something stupid to let this happen twice to. Maybe I have? Don't think so but maybe.
I can never get my point across well in posts. But I tried :/
