Request from me: Can you write a couple of sentences as to why you join in with this forum and also what you get from it?

It will be placed in a report I am making for the sponsors.

Greatly appreciate your time.

Thank you again.

I have found the Abuse Chat every Wednesday a place where I can say my truth and be around others who 'get it'.  Due to an accident at work, and ongoing litigation Re. this, I have read recent physical and psychological reports in relation to this.  What has surprised me however, is reading information about me from my medical files from years ago of which I had forgotten or was unaware.  I.e. I suffered a broken arm aged 4 and 6 when unsupervised!  Also in 1999 and in 2001 my doctor has noted the extreme abuse I was suffering etc, referral to psychologist and her report after I only attended 2 appointments!  I felt as if I was reading about someone else.  What is clear, is that I had confided somewhat to these professionals,(my daughters were 3 & 6 at the time, clearly depressed and in the thick of an abusive and controlling relationship and there was no structure in place to get us out, keep us safe, only noted.   Also noted was that it appeared my mother was extremely controlling.  I thought I only figured this out recently.  I feel really sad and embarrassed and ashamed reading all this about myself ????

Thank you Pamela for sharing your thoughts on Abuse Talk with me. I am sorry to read about your experiences on reading your past records. Do you have some support? Or can you speak to someone about this? I can't imagine what it would be like but you don't have to be alone in it.
