    There are times like these

    where I'm just waiting for the storm to pass and I don't feel like trying. I don't want to do anything but cry. This emptiness in my heart is getting bigger and travels to my throat from holding in my screams for so long. I could go on and on about why I'm feeling this way...

    Emotional And Verbal Abuse By Husband

    I have been going through this forever and I'm doing something about it like:  telling family, going for counselling, and trying to respond to it differently.  I keep a positive attitude, but it's hard when I'm confronted with the abuse.
