      Hi. I’m new here. I wanted to ask if anyone has lived with emotional abuse from a parent their whole lives and are now only just realising? I’m (detail removed by moderator), have 3 beautiful daughters and am currently living with my abusive mother. This abuse has been there my whole life but I’ve only realised this in the time we have been living with her. I feel we are trapped here.

      Hello TwentyOnePilotsFan,

      Thank you for your post and for sharing what you’re going through.

      I’m sorry to hear about the abuse you have experienced from your mother, it must be a devastating realisation to come to.
      It sounds like living with her has really shone a light on the behaviour, and you’ve been able to reframe the way you view this. It could be the first step of a long journey and I’m glad that you’ve decided to reach out for support with this.

      I’m sure other users will be able to offer some advice and support soon.

      Take care and do keep posting to let us know how you are doing.

      Hiya I’m new too, and I have experienced the same from my family my whole life too. I’m sorry you had it too.
      (detail removed by moderator) I am single, without a job and no friends, living with CPTSD.
      All because of abuse from family and exes and struggling in jobs because of bullying and harassment too.
      I did have a job with children not long ago until I disclosed ptsd and they got rid of me because of it.
      So I just feel so useless and alone now. I am hoping to meet people on here and at least get some kind of connection from others.

      The realisation is painful, but it’s good to realise, so that you can set boundaries, and know that it’s not your fault. More importantly, you can seek help and work on the impact of the abuse. It’s painful, but it worths. Hang in there x
