Today, as opposed to the past when I pathetically drank away my blues...I can face them. Be sad if I need to be, without falling apart. Be grateful for the time I had with them. Keep the good memories alive. Two very different men...each one so very special to me. Both having a huge meaningful impact on my life. Learning something precious and valuable from each.I honor all both of t... Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:01:14 EST domestic viloence http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5967777 domestic violence <BR> After I left DV I was so relieved and so happy I wasn't killed. Now I almost wish he did kill me because the agony keeps getting worse. I mean like being suicidal and in terms that each day I discover another way in which DV has permanently impacted my life. Besides being impoverished with more health problems than I can count, it's the little things. DV teaches you that you don't have control over your life. And life doesn't get better. Studies show that DV is permane...

Tired of trying so hard, to keep moving forward, to think the right things, to not miss...ect ect! My life is lonely. Nobody looks at me and says I love you. How do I keep going through this everyday? Sun, 21 Jun 2015 14:05:52 EST I GOT OUT ALIVE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5947056 I GOT OUT ALIVE: "Why did you stay?" It's my least favorite question. No matter how nicely someone askes me, with their tilted head and sad eyes, it still sounds derogatory. It's my fault. <BR> Yes I stayed, more times than I can count. I stayed after each bruise, after each horrible insult and his cheating and lying and stealing and manipulating . Yes I stayed <BR> Do you want to hear "because I'm an idiot"? "because I looooved him"? <BR> Why not ask "How did you get out?" instead <BR> Be...

At the end of the day when I crawl into bed and all the lights go out, my thoughts can finally rise to the surface. Yes I’m a little bruised, slightly broken, and permanently scarred but I’m still here, I’m still fighting, I’m still waking up everyday to go through it all over again. This life may be hard as hell but it’s still a gift and I’m going to live every moment of it....

I feel compelled to share it with the rest of you, in the hopes that you will see that there is life beyond heartbreak. I truly pray that it will help. TRIGGER WARNING: I once fell madly in love with a man who hurt me very badly : physically and emotionally. I didn't care; I was just so much in love with him. He told me that he didn't want to see me anymore and my world just fell apart. I took every pill and drank everything that I could find. The next thing I knew I ...

He fed on it and became bigger and bigger until he became the God of my life with the ability to give or take away pain or to even give or take away my life. I'm not going to be silent anymore. I'm going to keep writing and tell my story to every...

I am the one who is choosing to kick him to the curb and I am the one who is choosing to move on with my life. I prayed for God to deliver me from his abuse and had hoped that God would miraculously turn him into a human being but instead my answer came in the form of him walking out on me and locking me out when I was sick.

I think of it as a spot/scuff/sticker/mask/dirt or smudge that is on my heart. like a stain.

Thu, 9 Apr 2015 08:29:31 EST JUST RUN http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5907885 I know a few people who are in some sort of an abusive relationship. Recently a woman died at her ex-husbands hands. She was dropping off their pet and all the public knows is that she was beaten to death and he's in jail. My point is, Don't minimize what happens or what happened to you. Stay away from the person who abused you. I've personally have lost one too many from DV. I was one of the lucky ones. I'm alive and thriving. Once someone abuses you, they usually don't change. They may act ...

He was hateful He twisted everything around. He didn't physically harm me this time but verbally. What he did though was threaten to make my life a misery. He wants to run me not only out of town but out of the state,and he has done it... He is hell bent on destroyi...

This is my great task, to find peace & acquire serenity. I must not harbor disturbing thoughts. No matter what fears, worries, & resentments I may have, I must try to think of constructive things, until calmness comes! Have A Beautiful Day!!!

He was extremely abusive and controlling. I mean we're talking borderline captivity/torture. I've attempted to leave tons of times, but always returned. I've been doing really well with my newfound freedom after many many years of living under his hand. So why is it I've been thinking about him, and feeling like I want to go home these past few days. I am slowly slipping back into a depressive episode, and can't turn it off. I'...

I know I can never go back and I don't actually think he wants me back either but god it is hard. I miss my home and my cats and all the years we loved each other What the hell is wrong with me? Wed, 1 Apr 2015 20:43:30 EST FREEDOM ISN'T FREE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5899594 FREEDOM ISN'T FREE: My abuser/husband kicked/locked me out while i was in the hospital. I have envisioned this day, listened to the audio I have of him threatening me and wondered what life could be like. Now that he's gone out of my life I find myself frightened of being alone and wonder what's to come. He controlled me for so long I don't even know how to act. He kept me from my friends,and family ,and he has kept my cats from me too.but all i do is feel sick and cry now that i am alone.Wha... Wed, 25 Mar 2015 17:54:13 EST depression http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5898942 What I hate most about anxiety is waking up with it. It’s like an emotional hangover – the first thing you feel before you open your eyes. I want to be able to tie my anxiety to an event or person or thing. Maybe then I could make sense of it. But I can’t. It is just there, tight and nauseous in my chest. I so badly want it to go away. It is Saturday! It is gorgeous outside! <BR> <BR> I run down my gratitude list, hoping that will help: I have been unscathed by the recession – keeping my job...

There have been fleeting moments in which I had a functional relationship. When is it supposed to get better? When am I meant to stop feeling damaged, alone and unwanted. I'm trying to be independent and pick myself up from the recent abuse, but I'm tired of always looking after myself and having nobody looking out for me. Tue, 24 Mar 2015 07:24:34 EST home is where the heart is. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5896823 I feel like the little boy that cryed wolf.I asked my daughter many times when my husband and i would disagree to come and rescue me and help me get a apartment and she never would so i was mad at her.Things were going ok and 6 weeks ago she picked me up and refused to take me home as a intervention and said i had to sign myself in the hospital cuz i had been sick.I did not know what to do and was so angry n hurt she would not take me home.i have not even been allowed to tell my husband why i...

As soon as I feel I am getting a handle on this being homesick a panic attack comes screaming in. I'm not sleeping well or even eating much, for that matter. This is a definite struggle.I am so sick of it controlling my physical n emotional health.

I looked under the bed, in the closet, in the laundry basket and even under the rug and just can't seem to find my give a damn!! Why don't people understand that when I get angry , that means to back away, not to just keep provoking me? Oh well back to bed,, seems my middle finger has had an erection longer then 4 hours!!

I'm convinced it doesn't just happen; those who find that focus bring themselves to the cusp of making everything happen and then they begin to see weight loss occurring on a consistent basis. <BR> As I watch myself and others, we are certainly trying but ...

My doctor has no idea what causes it, my x-rays and scans have all been clear. I dont smoke, and I am 56 years old and a housewife. <BR> <BR> The phlegm is white and very thick. Sometimes it gets stringy and I start to choke on it. If I'm not coughing, I'm clearing my throat, because phlem is always there, no matter how much I cough up.

But, you can do a great deal about your future. You don't have to be the same person you were yesterday. You can make changes in your life -- absolutely startling changes -- in a fairly short time.

Some of us go around with controlled smiles while underneath we are grumbling. Others blast everyone around them. Some of us save our most critical reactions for those we love while staying sweet and friendly with the outside world. In any case, we are caught in a blinding trap.
