I TOOK A LOOK AT YOUR LINK AND I UNDERSTAND THE PAIN, MEMORIES OF ABUSE. I AM A DOMESTIC ABUSE SURVIOR. I HAV BEEN OUT OF THAT RELATIONSHIP FOR OVER 7 YEARS NOW. THE PAIN IS GONE BUT THE MEMORIES REMAIN. IF I AM WATCHING A MOVIE ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SEE SOMEONE HITTING ANOTHER PERSON I CAN FEEL THE PAIN ON MY FACE AS IF IT WAS HAPPINING TO ME. I STILL HAVE VIOLENT DREAMS. I STILL FACE TRIGGERS, DOOR SLAMMING, LOUD NOISES, PEOPLE YELLING, ARGUING, ETC... I DONT CRY ANYMORE, I CAN LOOK BACK AND NOT HURT EMOTIONALLY BUT THE MEMORIES WILL LAST ME A LIFETIME, YOU NEVER GET OVER THAT. YOU FEEL BAD WHEN YOU SEE SOMEONE IN THAT SAME SITUATION AND WANT TO SCREAM AT THEM " GET OUT' BUT YOU CANT BECAUSE I USED EVERY EXCUSE IN THE BOOK TO STAY AND GO BACK THE 7 TIMES I WENT BACK. SOMETIMES ITS LIKE YOUR STUCK, YOU SEE SOMEONE BEING ABUSED, THE AUTHORITIES DONT ENFORCE THE LAWS, ABUSERS GET A SLAP ON THE WRIST OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. YOUR FRUSTRATED BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT, EXCEPT TO VENT AND UNLESS YOU BEEN THERE PEOPLE WHO WERE NEVER ABUSED CAN NOT UNDERSTAND OR DONT WANT TO LISTEN OR HELP  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

(((Hugs))) Debbie,I get very angry when I see someone being abused.I just want to hit the abuser like I did my ex so many times... Your right that we never get over the abuse totally,but if we can change for the better,and hopefully help someone else thats in the same situation then we should give ourselves a much deserved (((hug)))!
