Physical & Emotional Abuse Support Group

Abuse is a general term for the treatment of someone that causes some kind of harm (to the abused person, to the abusers themselves, or to someone else) that is unlawful or wrongful. No one deserves abuse, period. Abuse can be emotional, physical, or sexual.

    I was reading somewhere about narcs and their sense of entitlement and how alot of them are aggressive drivers and also steal. Mine was both. His driving petrified me. He pulled maneuvers that were not only embarassing but downright dangerous..why? I suppose it's because he just thinks he is above others and rules. He also shoplifted constantly. Ridiculous stuff. He got caught one time and had...

    I just need somewhere to vent. Sometimes I feel like I have it all sorted out....like I've done a great job at starting a new life without my abusive ex. (I've left an almost impossible situation, landed a great job and got a new place for me and the kids). Then I start by saying the abuse was physical, verbal, emotional, sexual and financial. We were together for more than a decade and have...
  • I recently moved to a town (Colwyn Bay). Staying positive in this town is a task & half. In an additional negative situation.I have not been around such a negative, derogative, demoralising, manipulative, jealous, calous, spiteful, petty, small minded, resentful, aggressive, nasty... etc people for a long time. These people seem to spend their time trying to get one up on each other and competing...
  • Some days I think Ive got this.Most days I cry all day. For the silliest reason, in shops in banks just sitting on the sofa....today I started crying in the library and the only thing I had to dry my eyes was a panty liner in my bag. Thats quite funny but I wish I could just stop.I spoke to him today. I knew I shouldnt and I didnt mean to but we started a text conversation and he started saying...

    Hi everyone, this is my first time on this site. Today has been a bad day so I decided to try and find something new I've never tried to help a little.I have recently "ended" my 6 year relationship with a physically/emotionally abusive boyfriend. We have a 4 year old son together. I say "ended" because I never really feel like it's over. I always let him back in. I can't stop. I feel like I love...
  • Every day is a struggle. Some days are good and I feel like I've got this. And other days are absolutely horrible. I cried pretty much all day on Saturday. I feel like my son is having to put up with another thing he shouldn't have to. I text people and call and they are supportive, but I feel getting frustrated with me. I get responses like "keep busy" or "find a hobby". I know their intentions...

    WHaaat just happened?

    Just to fill you in, I have just left my emotionally abusive husband of four years. I am pretty wobbly about it all but I was resolved to move on and keep away from him. I arranged to pop down to see him and discuss what was going on with us. But he chose to be out and not see me so I took that as a sign he really wasnt that fussed about me.We have been emailing this week about finances mainly...

    Hello

    I had to create a new account because the new site wouldn't accept my old user name/password or e-mail. So here I am with a (slightly) new name! I was formerly Daydreamer73. I've missed my friends on here and can't seem to get used to this new format. I will be inviting everyone I remember from before to be my friend and I hope you'll accept and then I can see what my "friends" are up to on...

    So the weekend came and I got extremely sick this weekend. I have been so sick. I cannot keep any food down, nor do I want to eat. I make myself because I know I have to. I have developed some serious stomach issues and feel like I have the colon of a 90 year old and I am a 42 year old vibrant woman. Not right now. I feel broken. I am angry that he came back home and just sort of sat and...

    Angry

    I'm very sad and angry not only at the plain overpopulation of abusive men in this world, but also at the lack of empathy there seems to be towards a woman's suffering of abuse. I realized that I am not uncommon in having experienced abuse as a woman. I have experienced a lot of trauma in my life; some damage done by men, other damage done by women, but the truly difficult part of all this for...
  • There's a line that is crossed when a parent has used something against you for the hundreth time and you finally just have had enough. Upon having a friend visit me after me being sick for a week, my parents decided to rain some hatred down on my life choices. First of all, yes it was in the evening - he just got off work and wanted to see how I was. Secondly, yes he's a male, doens't mean he is...

    Been out five months

    Hi everyone,I haven't been around for a while - this is my first time posting on the new site. Anyway, I wanted to say today marks five months since I kicked my abusive husband out of the house and I'm SO proud of myself for staying out for this long (before I never would have been able to compliment myself that way :P) It's been a hard, hard road and I still have a lot of work to do. Last week I...
