How Did You All Cope?It'll be 6 months on Valentines Day that my boyfriend attacked me. I am far away from him, surrounded by my loving family, and have even found an amazing guy. But I'm still having a lot of trouble coping. I still have nightmares that keep me up all night, which isn't good when you have a one year old. Any touch to my neck, any raised tone, any thing that reminds me of what happened, destroys me all over again.
I think my biggest problem is I feel like I have no one to talk to. Well, I do, but they don't know what to say because they don't understand. They haven't been through it. So I feel unsatisfied with a lot of those conversations.
I want to live. I want to be happy and enjoy every day. And most of all, I want to find myself again. Those two years with him were spent with him tearing every part of me that I loved, away. I don't know where to start, so that's why I'm here.
Where I'm getting at..
If anyone wants to talk about their experiences- new or old- and how they are coping with it, feel free. I'd love to help others as much as I need helped myself.
