Just updating since I started here ,I think I have grown in my knowledge of the abuse that I have lived in for so long and I have found so very much support .I feel very empowered in my decision making process now that I finally have support and can read what others have been through and are going through.This site has been a blessing to me an makes me feel alot stronger and more confident in my own decision making.

Hi Tony, I cannot recommend the book \"why does he do that?\" enough. It put a lot of things together for me. I feel so much stronger now. I also read a really good free PDF entitled Empowered Recovery... I think their website is empoweredrecovery.com. It\'s very, well powerful. I also struggle with my Mom but she\'s more the cold as ice type. Let me know how it\'s going!

You know, I only joined here in March, and I\"m blown away by how much I\'ve learned here.

My very first post was entitled: Is this emotional abuse?

I really didn\'t know. To me, abuse was getting hit or getting called a bad name. I just thought that my husband was mentally ill. Well, I still think that he is, but now I know that he\'s abusive, and I can\'t believe that I\'ve gone all of these years living with this and never seeing it for what it really was.

I\'m so glad that we have this site. I\'ve learned so, so much.

I agree the book why does he do that by Lundy Bancroft is such an eye opener. I think you need to update this to at least 50% =)
