I have made some great friends here and have found amazing support. I hope to have given it too. I have simalarish issues with my daughters. I spoke out for the first time, properly, last year.

    @WVSurvivor I have many problems with my mum. She is so critical and controlling. I take it but it makes me hurt, anxious, angry. Can’t she see that it is tall about her. She loves to give me little emotional digs, references to the past. “You won’t start drinking again will you, that will destroy your children and they need you” and so on. Laying on the guilt.

  17. I am new(ish) - not sure when I become "not new!". I am finding my way around the site and there is a lot of support here. It has taken me a while to get to grips with things and read through stuff, but the more I do the more I realise how helpful this forum is (will be). One thing I notice is that some people say "my stuff isn't as bad as other peoples". I think everyone's is different but equally bad, because it is THEIR experience and you can't compare it to anyone else. It may not SEEM as bad as other people, but it is bad to you or you wouldn't be here. Don't underestimate the trauma you
