How concerned should I be?

My grandchildren's father makes his 4 daughters (triplets 7 yrs. old and a 5 yr. old) lay on top of him while he's laying on the couch while watching tv. It creeps me out and makes me wonder if he's grooming his daughters, he was also convicted of aggravated sexual abuse at the age of 20 against his girlfriend (16 yr. old) at that time and spent 7 yrs. in prison, he's 47 yrs. old ...

What kind of abuse is this?

Is anyone aware of a name or category, or anything I can look up for the following?

1. Growing up my parents kind of "cheated" with words so to speak. They used manipulative language, because I was a kid so they felt they could just hide things from me (even the most trivial things).

2. They manipulated me but I couldn't say anything because verbally it all checked out and sounded like there was nothing ...

Childhood abuse...

It's not something I talk about because I did love my brother and I feel like I'm betraying his memory.

It wasn't his fault either. He was abused by his horrendous mother and it was like he was doing the same thing to me. He used to beat me with sticks and as I got a bit older his mother would tell him to abuse me in front of people to humiliate me (I can ...

Was I molested when I was very young?

I don't remember any specific incident. And I had left it at that for the longest time.

But I remember having vivid sexual dreams involving myself and adults when I was around 6. It would be very triggering for me to describe them in detail. But suffice to say they involve "correct" prescient knowledge of some adult sexual activity, even though I was never exposed to that kind of information.

Whenever I had those dreams ...

Validating my abuse?

I apologize if this topic has been spoken about many times before. I'm just feeling a little insecure about my abuse as a child, and was hoping for a bit of validation that I was, indeed, abused. I'd also like advice on what to do when I start questioning my abuse, if others have felt this way and if so what do you guys do about it?

I often feel my abuse is nothing compared ...

JOKER MOVIE TRIGGER WARNING

If you were physically abused or emotionally manipulated it can be triggering. Maybe be careful about any plans you have for after the movie and maybe have some safe stuff lined up.

Many may have no problems but one scene had me close to tears.

Take care guys, but an amazing movie. Will be seeing it again.

Child abuse, gaslighting, and false memory syndrome

Writing for another member of our system (Zami) who is currently unable to write.

They are the one carrying all the trauma-related memories, and the consequences of the gaslight surrounding said traumatic events. They fight the gaslight effects every single day, to the point of sometimes regretting they had EMDR to remove some of the PTSD effects - because without the daily intrusive memories, they don't have any "proof" it really happened therefore, the "you ...

Nightmares - Trigger warning

I usually try to keep my own junk out of here, but today has not been a great one and my own dear wife gets triggered if I talk at home. She is also a survivor - but I also know that talking about my childhood causes her great pain - so I try to keep it to myself. Sound familiar guys and girls.

The" egg donor" is now 95. A short stooped overweight woman ...

Was I severely abused?

I feel that throughout my childhood I was abused by my parents and elder brother, as wel as putting up with bullying from friends, classmates and teachers.

What I want to konw is if I overreact or what I construe to have been abuse was just 'tough love' or discipline?

Both of my parents were highly intellectual people, not very much in tune with their emotions. We never talked about emotions. I was born 6 ...

Is it normal to be so afraid? *TW*

I was emotionally and psychologically abused by my grandmother for my entire life, so much so where I don’t remember all but 3 years of my life, spare a few snippets here and there. I didn’t realize this was abuse until about 3 months ago. I used to spend pretty much all of my time with her, as I came from a dysfunctional family. She convinced me that she was pretty much a saint, along ...
