    Emotional Abuse Can Leave Scars Too

    Gradual Unravelling Of The Truth.

    I had the fantasy of a normal childhood. I wouldn't go so far as to say happy, I never fit in at school, had trouble socially, felt different, like other kids didn't like me. I had a very high IQ and was an early reader, academically gifted, however I never topped the year at...

    Making Our Own Family Connections

    I grew up thinking that I wasn't good enough or worthy of a good family or true friends. I was alone, lonely, and self hatred had gotten to me. I need to be nurtured, cared for and listen too. I just never wanted to be accepting of that when I was young and in to my later teen...

    When I was a little boy my mother took all her

    problems out on me. She blamed me for her "stress" and when other things were going bad she'd find something to get mad at me about. She yelled at me and heaped verbal abuse on me and made me cry. She would only occasionally hit me. Mostly slaps and shoves, a few times she...

    She Said I Was A Mistake.

    For years, I have been abused by my mother. I never realized it was abnormal. I thought it was my fault. She always said if it wasn't for me she wouldn't be unhappy. If it wasn't for me she could escape from my father, her cheating husband. I have 2 other sisters but I guess...

    A Psychotic, A Tyrant, And A Bully All Rolled Into One

    This is VERY lengthy, so please bear with me here. My Mother, simply put, is the meanest, angriest, most unpleasant person I know. She is a psychotic, a tyrant, and a bully all rolled into one. My parents split up when I was around 5-6 years old. I'm not exactly sure of the year...
