  1. Welcome to the forum maria. Im sure you find lots of support here. Its great to hear you want to move on. You are not alone. I was in an abusive relationship for 6 years and left her some months ago. I am also in the process of moving on and still a bit hang up in the denial phase. Often I see my ex as a good person who didnt mean any of that. Then in some moments I see her for what she is but then fall back into my fantasy world where I imagine all the good things and block out the bad. It can be a real mess. Sorry for rambling on just want to let you know you are not alone with your struggle

  7. I feel the same. When I tell my story im completely detached from my emotions. Its like I narrate a newspaper article. It seems so strange I dont feel anything. In fact one of the reasons my first therapist thought I made it up was that I was not emotional when telling it. You are not alone. I believe its just a way to protect ourselves from the pain.

  18. Welcome to the forum. Im sure you find lot of supportive people here. Sharing with others like me really helped me so much in the healing process. You are not alone.
  19. Im sure nobody here will be offended by visiting escorts. I believe its very common for victims of abuse to cope with the abuse in that fashion. I feel kind of unable to being touched by a person for a while now but I have what I consider a porn addiction and compulsive masturbation.

What I find so interesting in the healing process is that lot of issues seem to disappear of themselves once I progress in the healing. I still watch porn and masturbation really often but be
  20. well I meant I went back to denying the abuse effected me and later that it even happened. I started to stuff down my feelings and ignored them. I began thinking the abuse wasnt really that bad and it dont affect at all anymore. I decided its best to forget it and never mention it again. Later I thought I dont have any objective evidence it ever happened and people often have false memories and repressed memories are not really reliable. I convinced myself the abuse probably didnt happen and even if it doesnt really matter because it doesnt affect at all. If anything got to the surface and I b
  21. Im 33. When I was about 18-19 the first flashbacks came and I had a complete mental breakdown. That lead me start healing.

During that I had severe issues with getting intimate which convinced me the abuse was still effecting me very much. That was the motivation for me to pick up where I left.
