    Found a picture of my dog today.

    He died last year. I grew up with him ever since I was 2. He reminds me of every single happy memory I had. Now I can't stop crying. Lovely.

     I know he has treated other girls this way. It started when I was 17, before I fell pregnant. I was kicked out of home at 17, as my mother has never liked me, and after my parents got divorced and she kept the house, and my sisters and I, it all went wrong. Two of my sisters...

    Is This Emotional Abuse?

    Dear all, this is my first post so here goes! I am writing this the day after a huge row with my parents. I am 36 years old and ever since I can remember my mum and dad have belittled me, put me down, criticised me and ignored me. My twin brother moved 100 miles away a a few...

    My grandmother has been emotionally(and

    sometimes physically) abusing for 7 years, but I have never told anyone. She is the kind of person no one would suspect of doing something like that. she is loved by, our church, and our family. She knows my life could be a lot worse than what is right now, so she always reminds...

    I'd say it has affected the way I maintain

    intimate relationships in my adult life. I have severe trust issues due to certain boundaries being broken and certain obligations that were expected to be carried out, never being carried out. It's hard accepting what happened, but being able to talk about it does help.

    You went on your way

    My step mom emotionally abuses me.

    I'm not sure if she understands how much it hurts, but she does it consistently. I am the bad child in my family, I have accepted that I guess. She doesn't tell me I'm stupid but she takes every chance she gets to put me down. She points out my GPA is only a B+ when her kids...

    at my school, but it really took a toll on me when a new nanny came into my life. There are many situations but I'll only talk about a couple. One time she came to my school claiming to be my mother, then she emptied out my locker and brought everything home in a trash bag. She...

    I Have Been In a Too-common Way

    I feel I have been emotionally abused too, in a way that is becoming all too common these days. Last year, out of the blue, my wife said " I want a divorce". Now after 35 years together, and not having any obviously big problems, this can be pretty flattening. I tried...
