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 fight back... hard.

    I can't stand the stuff he's put me through. It makes me feel more angry and hurt than I have ever felt in my life. At the same time I feel crazy. I used to approach him with issues rationally, with thought. I stopped bringing issues up until he emotionally abused me, because it was the best time to do so. If he started it: he initiated the abuse; not me. If I approached a concern on my terms I...

    I don't know what to do.

    I need an outside perspective.My history makes me look bad, and I am a bit embarrased. I was married for 10 years- he cheated a lot, and left the kids and I. Dated someone for 4 years before marrying them, then 4 months into the marriage they "weren't in love anymore" and left the kids and I. Was dating someone for about 6 months and found out I was pregnant. We were in love, and it seemed...

    So I'm not sure what to even say here. A lot of stuff has happened over the past few years, and especially the last few months so it may be a long post. My therapist thinks it may be good to type it out here so I will try. I met Tyler almost six years ago. He was charming, sweet, and generally the perfect gentleman. He was twenty eight at the time and i was nineteen, still living with my...

    Does this count as abuse?

    1
    So I was in a relationship a few years ago and it really messed me up. It was my first real relationship, I was 18 and he was 26. We dated for a little over a year before I had the support and the courage to break up with him. I don't know if what happened would be considered abusive or not, but I'm pretty sure it was at least a dysfunctional relationship. It really messed up my perception of...

    i feel like the water in my body is heavy and frozen. in a lot of sorrow and sometimes fury spirals. I was in a 3.5 year relationship that was emotionally abusive, and also fits the pattern of narcissistic abuse. It ended a year ago. it ended in being discarded, and completely unresolved, as most narcissistic abusive relationships end. in the wake of this year, i have had extreme cognitive...

    hi, Lola here or Lo, I’m also new. I’m not sure how I even came across this site. But I did and I started reading some of the conversation as I could relate to a lot of it. I considered joining the convo as I think participating and/or receiving feedback could be really good for me right now but saw the posts I was reading were from 2013. About to leave when I saw Heidi’s post from just...

    Hi all. I’m new here. I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Heidi and here’s my story. I met my husband in November 9 years ago. After a month we were head over heels in love. I’d never experienced being in love like that! I thought to myself, “THIS is what the songs are talking about”! It was amazing. It was so amazing that 2 months later, when he got angry grabbed my hair I justified...

    Trapped With NPD Mother

    I've posted about this before, but I still need help and am having so much difficulty finding it. I'm almost 17 years old, and completely trapped with an abusive NPD mother. Long story short, she's incredibly abusive and absolutely no one in my family acknowledges it or confirms it. There is no doubt in my mind that she suffers from NPD- she shows all of the symptoms 100%. For YEARS all anyone...

    Earlier this year I was posting on this forum (while in therapy) about my separation from my husband and his verbally abusive ways. I've been in therapy for over a year now and basically... my therapist and I have discovered (what was suspected from the beginning), how much of my anxiety and depression and.... destructive habits have been as a reaction to the trauma I've experienced in my life...

    I'm having a really hard time today. The abuse is on my mind when I woke up this morning. I feel like these people ruined my life by severely abusing me. I suffer everyday in my life because of it. And I feel like there's never any help available for me.
