    Tryingtosurvive started a thread Needed to share something I wrote, anonymously in Public Forum
    I havenít written poetry in such a long time.... but today I needed to. I needed to get feelings out there and somehow it ended up as this... I sit and I wonder, Do you know what itís like? To stay up afraid, Scared to sleep at night. Itís easy to pretend, To say Iím okay... To hide my tears, They shed every day. To give everyone advice, Myself I can not follow. Instead I sit and I cry, I weep and I wallow. Just seeing your name, Iím right back there. This pain I feel, The ultimate despair. The feeling of choking, Youíre not even there. But you squeeze every last breath, Cut off my air. Youíre always beside me, But not as a friend. As a demon, a monster, There Ďtil the end. Iíll never get away, Escape your hold on me. I beg, I pray... please, please set me free 💔💔

    Unregistered started a thread Looking for advice in Public Forum
    I am trying to find advice on how to leave an abusive relationship. My husband and I have been together for 10 years and he has been abusive pretty much the entire time. He uses all types of abuse to varying degrees on a daily basis. We have 2 children (ages 10 and 6) and I am currently 31 weeks pregnant. I have tried leaving in the past unsucessfully and I desperately want to leave now but I am so scared. Scared of what he will do and scared that I canít make it on my own with 3 kids. We live in Canada now but all my family is in the U.S. (where Iím from) so I basically have no one here. I feel trapped. I have no money (he wonít let me work and he controls all money) and no where here to go. I donít want my kids living in this anymore. They deserve so much better. Although he rarely gets physical with them, he is verbally abusive towards them and they witness his abuse towards me. I am so lost and need advise as to how I can get out.

    Unregistered started a thread Am I being emotionally abused? in Public Forum
    My boyfriend and I have been together for eight years on and off. He has always had terrible anger problems. The minute I bring up something that he has done that bothers me, no matter how small the issue, he sees red and turns into what looks to me like a monster. He has never physically hurt me but today he got so mad that he threw a cereal bowl and it almost hit my head. When I gasped out of fear and began to cry he immediately got up and packed a bag and said that he would rather live on the street then live one more day with me and never apologized. Now he is texting me about how sorry he is and it is probably so I will let him back in the house. He has said and done horrible things to me over the years and I have always felt like I am being abused because it never got physical I never really categorized it that way. I once found out that he told a female coworker of his that he is only using me for sex. When we fight he gets very close to my face and tells me i make him hate his life and that i disgust him. Am I being emotionally/verbally abused?
