    I’d just like to say things do get better. Obviously there’s still ups and downs. I’m slowly getting my life on track two and a half years down the line. My PTSD symptoms are subsiding, I’m still anxious though. However I no longer feel unsafe, I’m not looking over my shoulder wherever I go. Things are looking up. The only advice I can give is to go completely no contact with your abuser if it’s at all possible. If you have children with your abuser then keep contact to an absolute minimum and only about child arrangements.

    Life does start to improve when you start to believe your own worth.

    This is good to hear Dragonfly, agreed that no-contact is the way to go, took me a while to figure that out but it’s true x

    i totally agree the no contact is the best healer. i changed my phone number only gave it to close friends and family. im lucky there is no kids involved. im not constantly looking at my phone and waiting to get a message.
