I was in an abusive relationship for (detail removed by moderator) years and have been living on my for (detail removed by moderator) years now. I continue to have panic attacks even if something little reminds me of him and get upset for no reason just get emotional and I think this happens because you are trying to hard to stay strong. It is nothing to feel ashamed about. It can take along time to heal but the best thing you can do is talk to someone about it. a true friend would respect how you feel and would be supportive even if they didn’t understand. My friends don’t understand but they will always listen and say I can’t believe that man has done this to you.
