  • ‘It took me 35 years to get over boarding school’

    Thirty years after I left school, I was invited back for an old girls’ event. I packed my overnight bag, kissed my husband goodbye and made the drive there from my home in Suffolk. Hours later, I was standing in my old dormitory – I’d been curious to look around – and was hit by an overwhelming desire to escape. I’d been a bit nervous to come, but nothing could have prepared me for the rush of distressing memories. I’d planned to stay at a nearby hotel, catching up with other former pupils. Instead, I got in my car and drove straight home. Walking into that dorm had uncovered feelings I’d buried for years – fear, loneliness, worthlessness. And although I was a grown woman of 46 with three children,
