Exclamation Types of Abuse. - March 18th 2009, 06:03 PM

Hello everyone, sorry i haven't been on for a while but i've been dealing with a lot still on the unit, off the unit, and just don't go online as much as i used to.

Recently i have been reading many books relating to peoples' experiences of different types of abuse; it has prompted me to make this thread, and to ask people if they could be brave enough to state what types of abuse they've been through in a poll.

In terms of myself, i suffered emotional and physical abuse from my mother from a very early age; she took out her miserable, failed life and existence, unhappy marriage etc, on her only child - me. I grew up with both my parents being very violent and abusive towards each other, with my mother starting things on the whole. I have also been exposed to some sexual inappropriateness from my father, and although it has been called abuse, i do not see it that way. He has never raped me, but i suppose that other things can also be counted by psychologists as sexual misconduct towards me.

It took me 7 years to speak out about the abuse, and it has been a very tough past 3 years for me. My mother will forever be in denial that she ever harmed me, and blames my father for my hatred towards her. Unfortunately, we are all still living in the same house at present, but independent living accommodation for me will be arranged soon, through my psychiatric unit. I still have mixed feelings about my father, and have worked through some of these things with him in therapy. I consider him my only parent. One of my most painful experiences which made it all worse is social services not believing me and siding with my mother. I have been through many therapists, suffered a great deal of depression, self-harm and substance abuse. It gave me hope that, one day, during my last-ditch attempt to find a good therapist, she looked me in the eye and said: "I believe you. I believe everything that's happened to you, and you did not deserve that". I still have complexes and massive amounts of insecurity and problems with trusting people, to this day.


I would just like people to know, that no matter what abuse you have been through, however hard it's been, you can overcome the trauma. A part of it will always stay with you, it's part of the person you are, but it is not all of you. I have an enormous amount of respect and empathy for those who have battled through this.

For those who are too frightened to speak out:


I understand that by telling anyone about it, you risk losing your whole world, and everything you've known up until this point. However, i have been there, and i fullheartedly believe you, and believe in you, and hope that one day you may find the strength in yourself to reach out and stop yourself going through the pain and the torture on a daily basis, and gain the ability and support to rebuild your lives.

Hope is always there.

Love, Michelle. x

Emotional abuse from my father, and peers all through school.
Physical abuse from my peers at various points.
Emotional neglect from both my parents.

And, although I've not experienced sexual abuse, the other abuse has effected my concept of myself as a 'sexual being', there's lots of damage and neglect there.

physical abuse from my moms exhusband
verbal abuse from parents (including my moms exhusband, my mom, and her current husband) and peers at school
sexual abuse from exboyfriend
and i guess u could say i was neglected by my biological father, he got off without any child support or anything


~~Jessica and Michael~~

We started dating 11/22/08
He told me he loved me on his 8th birthday
And i never believed he still would
After all that time....
until the day that changed my life

I did suffer some physical abuse from my dad when I was younger but maybe it was counted as harsh discipline...
The emotional abuse I have most days by my parents but I don't think they realise they're doing it.

Emotional and verbal abuse from a family member...although I don't believe that person is aware of what he does. Physical and sexual abuse but that's another story.

I agree with this so much, Michy. When all else fails, hope remains. Hope is the most valuable thing a person can have in life, because when you lose hope, you lose it all. Recovery is always possible.

Wow Michy. I think that's all I can manage to say after reading your post. Personally I've been finding things really hard recently in regards to the past and your post really hit home. I think it's that hope and belief that I needed to hear, and I'm sure others did too, so thank you for posting. I know this might sound cheesy, but you really are such a strong person and like you said about people here, I believe you and in you too.

To answer the poll I was sexually abused by my 'dad'. I don't know how old I was when it started as my memories are all in bits, but all I know was it started before I started school and continued until I was 11. During that time I also witnessed him domestically abuse my mum. I have been physically and emotionally abused by an ex.

Verbal/emotional abuse and Physical abuse by my family. Although I'm not sure if they even knew it was wrong or realize they did that to me.

I wish I had something brilliant to say to you in return, but all I can manage, lame as it may sound, is thank you for that. <3 I hope to one day find your strength and your courage to speak out about what's happened to me, and this post has made me feel as though one day, I might.

I have suffered through emotional, physical, and sexual abuse, as well as online sexual harassment and abuse, but I would rather not say how or by whom. I still blame myself to this day.

Wow. I try not to think about this stuff. I clicked all four boxes.

Emotional--a family member when I was young.
Physical--my father.
Sexual--a non-family member when I was a child, and an ex a few years ago.
Neglect--my father, again.

Emotional, all my life. Even now. I mean, I'm 18 and in university for crying out loud, and people around me STILL emotionally abuse me. People who call themselves my "friends"

Physically as a child, by kids that I went to school with. My most vivid memory of being beaten up as a kid was when I was about 7 years old and 4 boys in my class threw me to the ground and took turns jumping on my back..

Re: Types of Abuse. - March 30th 2009, 05:09 AM

Emotional; My biological father has "guilt-tripped" me, claimed that it is my fault that our relationship is minimal, called me names, intentionally made me feel guilty and unlovable, and has ignored me for long periods of time since I was very small. Once, when he was angry at my mother, he told me that if she ever tried to ask for child support, he would sue for visitation, so that I would have to come visit him whether I wanted to or not. He then disowned me for about four months.

Sexual; By another child when I was ten years old.

Neglect; Again, by my biological father. He has refused to provide child support, clothes, and food, even when he had the means to do so. I've lived in infested and unheated homes and he still refused to assist my mother and I.




"For the first time
in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"
