Also re what I can do for 'proof'. I've hand written a statement of everything I can remember happened while it was fresh in my mind for my record, so should I get someone to witness this? I did that yesterday, the day of the incident, at work. Several people at work saw me writing it (for several hours) as they kept checking on me because I was upset. I don't want to get other people dragged into this problem but if that is what really should be done, a few of them would probably be prepared to witness that they saw me write it and when. Ive signed it and noted the times I started & finished it.
Thankyou. That gives me some hope. Lyn
