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.

Emotional abuse.Collapse )

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?

Emotional abuse: Discussion and link.Collapse )

This week's questions about emotional abuse are:
  • How has emotional abuse impacted you most?
  • How have you come to recognize and identify emotional abuse?  What kinds of behaviors do you see as red flags?
  • What are some effective coping methods you've learned to help you recover from emotional abuse?
  • What kinds of habits and behaviors do you regularly employ to promote healthy emotional interactions between yourself and loved ones?

Hey, I'm back! 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.

In every loss in every lie In every truth that you'd deny And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake to great to hide And your voice was all I heard That I get what I deserve So give me reason to prove me wrong to wash this memory clean Let the floods cross the distance in your eyesCollapse )

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.

Non-graphic mention of child abuse, rape, self-harm, suicidal ideation & other stuffCollapse )
I hope everyone here is doing well. *hugs* to you who need it. Thanks for reading.
