Another Penny Drops

I have some respiratory issues which I thought stemmed from my MBP as a child. Turns out it is not COPD (thankfully) but was still caused by my childhood. Spent way too long with the specialist (very nice man) who was trying to work out the "why" of my issue. We both think we found it.

Anyway the by product was the conversation. He asked many questions about my childhood, about whether I could breathe ...

I am being haunted (TRIGGER WARNING)

Hi there, I’m a guy who likes both cats AND dogs (yes, we DO exist), major history buff, avid swimmer.
And I am being haunted…
Now before you call the Ghostbusters, it is not the spirits of the dead that are haunting me, it is my mother, her voice, her essence.
Let me explain.

Me: Autism, ADHD, IQ 142, photographic memory, adheres to absolute logic, didn’t know I suffered from autism or ADHD until age ...

Done with my mom for good

Thanksgiving came and went and I didn't call my mom. I am not in her life anymore. She is not in my life anymore. I don't want her in my life. She tried to weasel herself into my life again, and I sort of got scared she would do it, force herself into my life again and make me so unhappy. She said some really mean things about me recently. Made fun of me about ...

EMDR or Something else to treat issues from childhood abuse?

I was emotionally and physically abused as a child and now have issues associated with that. I'm looking for some kind of therapy that taps into the subconscious mind and helps treat issues from childhood trauma. I've heard EMDR is great but that it works better for single episode victims. Is there a therapy better than EMDR that taps into subconscious and focuses more on general ongoing physical and emotional childhood abuse instead of single ...

Trust and socialising - or at least I saw a Picaso

Last Monday my dear wife dragged me into town to see a display of impressionist paintings from the Hermitage. This is not something I enjoy, but it was big for her.
It was a semi private showing after hours for members of her old University Alumni with guest speakers, also ex-Alumni being executives from two of our biggest banks.

I hated most of it. Not the art, just being there. I always do. Parties weddings, ...

That look we get when we tell someone

Quiet and I were discussing one of the difficult things we have experienced as a survivor and that is the look on someones face when we answer questions about our lives.

It is not just pity, or shock, or disbelief, or as another friend said "oh paw you" (which made her want to tear that persons arms off) but to me it is "I wish he would stop, for gods sake make him stop". Right ...

Loneliness because of Abuse

Hello. My name is Stella and I was abused by my mom when I was a kid and a teenager.

My mom did a myriad of things that would count as abusive in nature, but I'm not here to detail each and every thing that she did. If I did that, we would be here all day. What I wanted to talk about specifically, today, was how my mother's abuse affected me socially.

When I ...

Nmom controlled clothes me and all

I hope this is in the right forum. It's my story of abuse that while no where near as bad as many and sort of incestuous in a way.

I had a narcissistic mother. Intense but not angry out of control. Doggedly persistent. Intensely controlling. Her main area of demanding was in controlling my clothes. This was in the 1970’s. I’m now 60 so a long time ago. Perhaps as part of my middle age ...

Austism, dad short temper

My bf and I have a 3 year old who as recently been digsnosed with Austism. He has a lot of “tantrums” and dad has a short fuse. Dad is good with our son mostly, but has a short temper. Screaming, crying, being loud sets him off. Usually it’s just yelling but I have seen him grab our son by the throat and arm and throwing him in the couch, grabbing by the hair shaking ...

Dominoes still keep falling

My childhood featured extreme long term physical and emotional abuse. To explain our bizarre home our mother made up continuing lies about her life, (we now believe she was committed at 13 - or had a child out of wedlock, or both), her health, Munchhausen + we suffered Munchhausen By Proxy. My brother and I were guilted into being her slaves (the Munchausen part) and set against each other so we did not communicate and ...
