      After falling apart at the star of the year when i really realised what the abuse was and seeing it all so clearly, I have the past two or three weeks picked up somewhat, not all good but stronger which I attribute a lot to being able to read and post on here and pm people as well and getting support form WA. A neighbour said to my husband that I looked well, I have been seen a few times walking across my (detail removed by Moderator) which I hadnt done in ages due to agoraphobia and standing outside talking to someone then today a man came to do a procedure, normally my Husband will open the door but I let him in myself. I have to have this procedure done (detail removed by Moderator) and he said how well I look, I cant say I feel wonderfully well as such but what I think they see is my strength and confidence growing, change of body language maybe be as I stand up to my abuser and not pulled right under by it anymore so I feel its positive that people are noticing some change in me.

      Dear God’s child, that is lovely to hear. There is light at the end of the tunnel & recovery from abuse is possible ,it takes some time & the road is fraught with challenges, but it is possible xxxxx (I have smiled, laughed & felt excited about my future lately)

      So pleased you feel stronger, Godschild! That’s fantastic! I know how much you’ve suffered.

      I know you have it in you to beat your fears.

      I think you regain a lot of strength from having your experience validated and from continuing to receive kind support and understanding. It gives you a kind of ‘armour.’

      It’s a whole lot better than feeling alone and our abusers trying to make us concede to their warped version of the truth.
