Hello everyone, well I've done it. I just got off the phone with the police. They were so helpful and understanding, I wish I'd had the courage to do it before.
I'll let you know if there's any fall-out!
Congratulations on taking this brave but essential step. Many of us have sudffered through this problem but there IS light at the end of the tunnel!! Even if she grumbles over it, you must cling to the knowledge that you have done the right thing - for her and for everyone else.
