Here to stay.

This is the second ‘I’m back’ post and I’m going to actually try and keep it up, in some ways it’s really therapeutic. With the trial set sometimes it’s easier talking to strangers than it is to people who are almost ‘too involved’. I’ve been asked to start a victim impact statement in preparation and I genuinely don’t know where to start, it’s too triggering and it’s too hard – so I’ve started writing it as a story and turning my thoughts into fiction – I’ve found its been easier to remember dialogue and the way he moved, things that I’d buried so deep I was scared when they rose to the surface – but as a story it’s almost easier to accept, easier to brush off as someone elses life that I’ve fictionalised.

Has anyone else had experience of Victim Impact Statements or even just writing about their own demons?
