Twisted Sister

sorry to hear how you’re feeling Scully 🙁 its so good that you can express yourself here especially as there’s noone else you feel can be there for you.

I wouldn’t worry about anyone having loads of psychology books, they’re meaningless in terms of whats going on for you. Even if he didn’t have those books or know about CBT he’d still be who he is.

I would also think that the lady that runs the group is specialist in PTSD (or would hope so) and not necessarily very aware of how abuse works, and that he is her client not you, and that he will twist things to his own justification.

Maybe the point is that it doesn’t matter what he calls you or says to others about you or him because you know its causing this for you?

you mightn’t ‘logically’ have any idea why you stay, but on other emotional levels you feel the pull to stay anyway. you recognise it and sounds like you are fighting it anyway. I think you are giving leaving a lot of energy and fighting for it.
