When I was 18 I was forced to get married. My parents lied to me to get me to go to Pakistan where they had pre-planned everything. When I got back home to the UK I wasent the same person. I refused to sign any documents that would help my 'husband' get to the UK but a family member forged all my signatures and within 6 months he was living in my parents house. I resigned to the life chosen for me and for years I have been lonely and scared of my family.
I have a daughter who is now 13 and recently I became very aware and worried that the same thing could happen to her. 2 months ago I left. My family have threatened me and even though I am still afraid I can never go back to that life or religion. My daughter and I are alone now without any outside support. I am struggling financially even though I have started to work part time. My credit is very bad as my ex would take out loans in my name and not pay them back. Please help us... turning away from Islam and my family has been very very hard as I have never been alone before. I will never go back but the struggle sometimes is unbearable and I'm scared everyday that they were right and I'm nothing without them. I hope you are able to do what you can for us to tide us by until we have our own place to live and a car so I can work more hours. Thank you so much
