    The First Time You Walked Out

    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...

    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...

    This Is It...

    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...

    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...

    My Personal Nightmare
