After being thru the abuse cycle for 23 years (sigh...I hate to remind myself of that fact)I am so used the ups and downs that go with abuse. It was very normal for me to have 2 great weeks of great marriage to have him melt down and make the next 3-4 weeks a living hell. I know you all know what I am talking about. So now I am out, loving the heck out of life, excited about the future BUT....is it normal for a while anyway to be constantly on edge thinking thoughts like "this will fall apart at any minute." "This won't last much longer", "When is the hammer gonna fall?" etc etc etc. Is that a mind case of post tramatic stress disorder or normal or....? I mean I obviously do not let it control my life but I have these fears deep down in my heart and my mind. Hoping this goes away soon. It has only been 7 months....

I guess I'll start with a question. Do you know that you are in an abusive relationship when you are? I guess a better way to ask may be. Did you see the abuse while in the relationship or did it hit you after the relationship ended?
That's just as important as it is on the discussion posts! More so for those who don't participate in groups!
