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.

    Is it too late?

    I posted in the divorce group and was told I needed counseling and I should come over here!  Now, I feel self conscious. I left my abusive husband about six months ago after 16yrs and one 13yr old daughter.  Verbal abuse and emotional abuse started pretty early on and some physical abuse soon after. Physical abuse, pushing, throwing me on the floor, threatening to punch, about once a year to...

    How did it come to this?

    I'm curious to know how other survivors have gone through the mess of trying to process everything that occurred within their relationships? I've been stuck for a long time trying to prove to him how his treatment of me; the cheating, the lies the name calling, the yelling, the discard, the threats, intimidation and so on, have been contributing factors to ways I've responded to him when he's...

    Emotionally abusive mother

    I'm a 20 years old, and I have been dealing with a more than dysfunctional relationship with my mother for the most part of 8 years now. I used to think it was a teenage phase and my mother's controlling personality would wane when I moved away to university, but that didn't happen unfortunately.When I was 13 I got involved with 'emo' people and self-harm - I was a silly child, there wasn't...

    Any safe space from trauma in Trumplandia?

    I've found nothing but support in this group so I am trusting to have the following discussion. But if you're prone to name calling (libtard, snowflake etc), this post isn't for you. I'm wondering, in the current political climate, with the gas lighting, lies and manipulating mind games, are there any other abuse survivors who are having a hard time coping with this administration?  Like any...

    Does Karma Pay Back The Narcissist

    Hi there, had this article from Melanie Tonia Evans,Sorry I cannot put a link to it. I've spent many hours pondering sweet revenge on my ex, and had I have been a lot lot younger I may well have done so, but I've learnt not to lower myself anymore, for any revenge action to them isn't seen as revenge action..just attention... so it's a pointless exercise... Today I simply smile at the fact that I...

    Emotional confrontation turned physical

    Hello, I really don't want to make this too long. Soo sorry. my guy and I of 2 years broke up about 2 months ago due to my jealous issues, and extreme insecurities. He said we could work it out if I could prove to him that I could try to change. However, we still live together because we're both on lease. Neither of us can/could afford to live on our own. I do love him, and I thought things were...

    Hello, I'm new.

    I came here for support because it has been very difficult to lean on friends and family. My partner became verbally and emotionally abusive after our child was born, I have moved out more times than I'd like to admit. Control is very important to him. Publicly he is a likable person and I feel like I am the only person he treats with such obvious contempt. I'm having a hard time not feeling...

    Is it real?

    I believe I have been involved in an emotionally abusive relationship. It is not verbally abusive as in name calling. But it is abusive in demeaning, belittling, discrediting, blaming, accusing, false accusations, lack of acknowledging my feels, invalidating, and constant regurgitating of the same negative things over and over again. I have gone through hours upon hours of listening to how bad,...

    #Maybe He Doesn't Hit You

    I am 28 years old women with a university education with a double major and a minor with distinction.

I travelled around the world, living day by day with big dreams for the future.  I have no dark secrets, I...

    Moving On?

    I was in an emotionally abusive relationship for three years, and it's been about seven months since it ended. I recently started dating again and met someone I really liked. The new guy broke up with me, and all I can keep thinking about is every negative thing my ex ever said. It feels like confirmation of those things. That I'm boring and stupid, that I really will be alone forever. I keep...

    Need Advice for Moving Forward

    After 28 years of marriage, I have finally stopped denying that my husband has been emotionally abusive. This past year has been the one that tipped me over the edge in recognizing that. My husband initially left our home in October after his second psychiatric hospitalization within six months, but came back. At that point, I walked out because I did not feel safe in my own home with him. It was...

    Need help

    Hi folks,A guy and I were in a relationship for more than 5 years. We were in deep love and attached to each other emotionally and mentally. I had an abortion of our 5 months old fetus 4 years ago because we did not think that was the right time of having a baby. I was mentally disturbed and not in a normal mental state due to the trauma. We started living together soon after then. Everything...
