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.

    Staying strong is a challenge.

    There are days when I feel undeserving. Even when I haven't spoken to him in months, I still hear his voice in the back of my head telling me how unsuccessful I will be, that I'm not good enough, that I'm not smart enough, that I won't ever make it without him. And most of the time I think that he's right. I have days when anger fills my whole body, a blinding rage seeing nothing but red. I hate...

    Okay well here it goes. It started with a relationship I had for about two years that I found out he was cheating on me with another woman for the entire relationship. He was very argumentitive towards the end and would tell this woman very personal details about our fights and even our sex life. His mistress would contact me every few weeks to inform me about the affair and say nasty things to...

    For those of you who have left an abusive situation how did you do it? I think so clear when he isnt around but when he is i feel like im in a fog. I keep thinking it isnt so bad and that maybe i overreacted each time we fight or that i am doing something wrong. I feel stuck. I dont want to be with him but i cant get away either. Any advice?

    Harassment

    My husband has just shared his feelings with me by yelling at me , demanding that I answer him, following me to the toilet where I was crying and starting at me again, threatening to sleep on the other room, continuing to badger me for an answer after I gave him the best answer I could. The issue? That I am not emotionally supportive of him. So his answer is to yell at me. Like this makes me want...

    I was bullied by my older brother

    Hi everyone. Even though I was a Social Worker and Therapist, I am seeking counseling for PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety after surviving a near-fatal MVA 1.5 years ago. I realized during my second intake session, when I was asked the question, if I had ever been bullied, the answer was yes, "by my own brother." I realized after he yelled at me while I was in a rehab center bound to the bed with...

    Abuse or not? Please help me heal

    I have been through a traumatic situation and I am wondering if you can give me any insight? I had a friend who was a lesbian, but she was with a boyfriend so her parents would not be disappointed, and she wanted to reproduce. I would always find myself telling her I was not bisexual. She would tell me all about porn that she watches, and say things like "she wished she could touch a woman". I...

    Still experiencing trauma because of other woman

    1
    Long story short I was in a relationship with an individual in my professional graduate program that was severely emotionally and psychologically abusive. His behavior reached the point where I had to speak to the Dean and almost got a restraining order.  To this day he tries to talk to me and act as if everything is alright. We just graduated from the program a week ago and I thought I was well...

    abused by a female

    thanks in advance for anyone taking the time to read and respond to this. I broke up with my girlfriend this past January and it ended horrifically.  I was very calm with her and was willing to do anything to make the situation easier on her.  As we discussed things she told me to just say that I didn't want her.  I refused to say it and she kept getting verbally louder when asking so I said...

    It gets better!

    It gets better! Some nights when I read posts of other members, I can’t help but get upset.  I read about so little expectations for the future.  So many people post about feeling helpless, hopeless and not believing things will get better.  Whether you are a direct victim, or know someone who is the victim, I am here to say..things get better!I was once a happy and confident young woman. ...

    Sent Flowers...

    Hi again,My emotionally abusive brother sent my mother flowers for Mother's Day from a couple hours away. However, before that point he hadn't talked to us in months. Is it possible I've been imagining the abuse? When he's not home he's much better, but when he's home again with us, he's worse. Can someone help explain how he can sometimes be nice and generous?
