I've been a mess ever since my ex-girlfriend falsely accused me of rape | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE my ex-girlfriend falsely accused me of rape, my head has been a mess.

The police arrested me, but have since dropped all the charges because there’s no evidence.

I’m 34 and my ex is 29. We were together for a year.

She was quite abusive during our relationship, especially when she didn’t get her own way. I decided to break up with her because I wasn’t happy.

When I told her, she said I’d regret it.

A couple of days later, the police turned up on my doorstep to accuse me of rape. It was a total lie.

After that, I had months of stress, waiting to see if it would go to court.

Although I’ve been cleared, I don’t feel I can ever trust another woman again. Some people believe there’s no smoke without fire.

You need support to get over what’s happened, and to deal with those who don’t believe you.
