Hello my name is Trisha, I was in an abusive relationship for 5 years with an alcoholic. Toward the end she abused me almost everyday. It got to the point where I was always scared  I left her back in August and seeked counseling. My councillor was wonderful and i learned alot from her. However, i still feel myself daydreaming of the past and getting angry.  I am just reaching out to know that i am not alone.

people keep trying to tell me to not dwell on the past. It's not easy, because everything around me reminds me of the very fact that everything has been going wrong for over 10 years, and then when I think of where I was at roughly 10 years ago it's still no better as that's when my dad started doing drugs and ruining his life. What was life like before that? Living with a woman who hated me for reasons I still don't fully understand while my dad worked all day.

So thinking about anything that happened before today is meaningless. It leads to constant negativity. Although I must admit it's hard moving forward when there is no forward...... Right now I'm just glad I still have a family that cares about me.
