I Have Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm syndrome is about justifying the abuser's abuse and then thinking he/she is great and taking his/her side. Anyone diagnosed with this confusing, mind-blowing syndrome!! 31 People

    Can The Stockholm Syndrome Be Inherited?

    My mother, who passed away last year, was married to an abusive husband in the last years of her life. She told me she married him because she needed a care giver (her health was very poor), and obviously she thought she could control him since she was of a higher social class...

    My Personal Nightmare

    I were severely bullied (from i was 5 to i was 15 years old), to such degree that my psychiatrist told me that I have developed Stockholm syndrome to be able to handle it. Taking about it is really hard and uncomfortable, because I would wish I could just forget it all. On the...

    The First Time You Walked Out

    They say when one door closes, another opens- But I don't want this door to close. Perhaps with my words I can procure a stop To silence the creak of the shutting door. This is possibly what you strived for a space eating the place where we once held hands when I shut my eyes I...

    This Is It...

     Wow, this is so much more difficult than I thought it was going to be. OK, here it is… My friends in the 1st grade were two girls named Paige and Beverly. Paige created this spy game which at the time I did not know was a game, for Bev and me it was our lives. We...

    Not Yet....!

    But I recently told my therapist that there's no doubt in my mind that I'd suffer from this if it ever happened to me. She thought I was just having a fantasy seeing as I want to get kidnapped. And so it's not really the same as being unknowingly kidnapped and being scared for...

    I just read an article this morning.

    ... I believe that in life everything happens for a reason and I am not even sure how I came across this article but I did. And I was shocked as I read my own life story through the eyes of a stranger. She was a mother of three, married to a sociopath and never knew it...

    Something I Wrote When I Was In A Really Bad Place

    How could you be so cruel? I love you and I know that you love me too. Why would you hurt me so much if you love me and how could you just let us fall apart? I was yours. Everything I had you had taken from me. Was I not good enough, I promise if you came back I will be better I...

    I Think I Have Stockholm Syndrome

    I have only known the term "Stockholm Syndrome" as it relates to hostages but today it occurred to me that I might have it. I was never an actual hostage. I could have escaped my abusive situation a thousand times and I didn't. Somehow I thought the abuse was my fault and that I...
