I Have Been Abused

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 522 People

    Right when I got out of high school,

    I started working. From there, I met this man whom I thought was the most wonderful and amazing guy ever. We hit it off and started dating and we were together for about 4 years. But already into the relationship, he was lying to me. Whenever I would question his whereabouts or...

    I've been Abused Physically

    but I'd have to say, Emotional and Mental Abuse is the worse. The Physical pain stopped after while when he was done for the night but it was the Emotional and Mental pain that never did.

    I denied it vehemently

    for a long time. Mainly, I was (and still am) afraid that I won't be taken seriously. I grew up in a middle class white midwest family with both parents around. Who would believe that my dad, frustrated with his overbearing parents, would beat on my mom and tell me how fat I am...

    When I was in elementary school,

    my dad would get frustrated, and make quick random decisions, some were harmful, and some were exciting but terrifying. For example, he would decide during the day that we would go on a cruise, he would come pick us up from school, and we would go that day, no toothbrush nothing...

    I'm scared. I was in my teachers room at lunch

    with a couple other kids. My teacher locked us in the room and told us to not let anyone in until she comes back. My "gf" was yelling screaming banging on the door to let her in. I'm afraid she's going to beat me. I don't want to be here anymore.
