Hello Jade, welcome to a place you didn't want to be in. However, you will get support here, and this is also a place where you can express the hurt too. 

At the end of my post will appear the free phone line for the Macmillan service, they are good at helping on the phone, it's a great system for 'talking things through' and helping you to see the best way to turn.

Sending you a big hug xxx
