Thought-Stirring Post: Public Entry

This week's topic is one that has been repeatedly requested by our members, quite possibly because it is not only so prominent a phenomenon, but also such an overlooked and minimized form of abuse.

This week's questions:
  • How has emotional abuse affected you?
  • What particular forms of emotional abuse were most difficult for you to recognize as abuse?
  • How does the way you view/treat/talk to yourself compare to the way your emotional abusers view(ed)/treat(ed)/talk(ed) to you?
  • What further questions do you have or what further areas of emotional abuse would you like help with?

I spent... uh, well, actually, I'm just going to cut this whole entry for triggers OF: hospitalization, SI/suicidality [not graphic], child abuse, contact from parents, triggering songs, healing, therapy, The Bleed, endo, PCOS, etc. Also talks about religion, specifically Christianity. please do let me know if I missed one, it's... not a good day for me physically.

So, I'm nearing the end of my first month of an outpatient treatment program - I start week four on Tuesday night (Monday is a holiday here). While therapy itself is interesting, I'm still nowhere near actually connecting to my emotions when I speak about my history.
