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.

    Emotional abuse?

    4
    My ex would punish me. For instance, I asked him to tell me more of what he liked about me non-sexually & he took it to the extreme & just stopped sharing his sexual thoughts with me. After I brought this to his attention he'd get really upset and tell me he was holding back in that area and it was to teach me the lesson of being careful about what I ask for...another example would be when he...

    Blame

    0
    Hello everyone, this is kind of a vent/rant.I've been in therapy for a while now, and this week when I went, I realized that my mother, sometimes my dad, and one of my ex-friends love to point the finger and blame me for everything that has happened to me. I realize that I am responsible for my actions, and I'm not playing the victim at all, but I feel like their blame isn't really helpful.For...
  • I haven't posted for a while because I couldn't access my profile. I am in the process of going through a lawyer to negotiate a legal separation.We were married 20 years, the first 10 he was all kinds of abusive, the last 10 he was emotionally/phyiscally/financially so. Extremely controlling. He wouldn't let me work or go back to school...now he doesn't want to pay support & his lawyer is saying...
  • The divorce proceedings are underway, and stbx is waiting till the last legal minute to do everything. I thought he'd be out by July 1 (a date my lawyer came up with), but that date has come and gone. I was hoping by my birthday (July 17) nope. Short of proving abuse (there is emotional and financial) I need to find ways to get him out now, as I will go insane shortly. His power over me is...
  • Hello everyone. I am new to this site, I've been searching...I wasn't quite sure where to post what I'm SO confused, lonely & afraid of. I posted on "lonliness" & had a reply letting me know there was also support groups for being in an abusive relationship, & found this one. I've been married for 20yrs. for the past 10+ I've been slowly, seeing a different man, than the one I'd married, I've...

    I'm so done with his bs. Having to endure 30 minute preaching sessions about how amazingly smart and astute he is and how awful I am is breaking me. Apparently he can "be a d**k because of extenuating circumstances". Which means he can treat me how he pleases when I go against him in any way. I have tried to give in and say "fine, you're right, I'm sorry" but nope that makes him mad too. I can't...

    I know I am doing the right thing, but my head feels like a jumbled mess sometimes. I can totally see him for what he is and how he has treated me. Why does it bother me so that he is out there on the prowl again? He will do this to her as he has done to every woman. He is nothing special...I see that now but he will charm his way into someone thinking they have just found the best thing ever....
  • I need to think this through; this is a predicament I hoped I wouldn't have at such an advanced age. Denny's verbally abusive tirades are getting much worse, longer, closer together. He goes over lines he didn't cross when were were young and things were so bad. “Cunt”, “whore”, “stupid bitch”, “fat ass”, “fat gut” were some of the...

    Can it change?

    just celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary at the beginning of June. Most days things are wonderful...(mind you I am a lesbian and we share two children together). We can still laugh together and encourage one another but there has always been a part of my spouse I just can't wrap my head around. More often than not every other word that comes out of her mouth is a swear word. She seems to not...
  • Haven't been on here in a while. I was with my emotionally, verbally, emotionally abusive ex for nearly four years. I finally made him move out back in March. To say I haven't gone no contact would be an understatement. I fell for him telling me how much he loved me and wanted to make it work and have kept a semi relationship going since then. It was in secret as my family wants desperately for...
  • My ex bf would verbally abuse me, then it turned physical. I was with him for 4 years, he has held a knife to my neck, raped me twice, choked me, dragged me, pushed me to the floor when I was pregnant, forced me to have abortions, manipulated me, punched my stomach when I was pregnant, and more. I finally stood up to him one day and got away from that relationship, but hes my babydaddy now....
  • Abusers suck the life out of us physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually. As long as we focus on them, we aren't focusing on ourselves. Whatever our circumstances, it's REALLY important to practice self-love and self-care.That's really hard because we are brainwashed into believing we are unlovable & that we don't deserve to be loved, respected or cared for. How do we get past that?We...

    He punches me in the head. I stay.. He calls me vile names.. I stay. When will I be able to walk away?
  • I've been thinking about this a lot lately and I wanted to know if anyone in here has had similar experiences or if anyone thinks this is as insidiuous as I do. As well as overt and covert things that have happened to me along the way... many times I really do think it is the insidiuous things which have had the most impact. The barely detectable incidents which cut much deeper, difficult for...

    Disappearing responses

    Again, for the second time this week, I posted a response (to "What exactly is emotional abuse?"). After I hit send, it appeared "published" on the page. Then I navigated away and came back to find that it's not there. I suspect it may reappear at some point, as did my response earlier this week. But. . . there you go. This "upgrade" has been a frustrating fiasco. What I just said is to...
