    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...

    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...

    I Also Had Stockholm Syndrome

    My story is one of terror and captivity, and what I thought to be love. I had met someone who I fell completely, head over heals in love with. He wanted to be married three weeks into the relationship and I was completely enamered by that and I told him I wanted a commited...

    This is something I hate to admit.

    . After being kidnapped, used, and abused, it still makes me cringe when people say "he'll get what he deserves" and much worse.. I hated him for a long time but after the abuse he would hold me and tell me he loved me and made me promise to never leave him..I almost miss all of...

    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...

    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...

    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...
