Surviving Abuse

How I Recovered from Depression I Didn’t Even Know I Had

Between 2016-2018, I was depressed.   REALLY depressed.   Nobody noticed… not even me.   Because I never had any thoughts of suicide, I didn’t know that it wasn’t okay to wake up sad every morning for “no reason.”   (Because I was oblivious to the reason.)   I didn’t know it wasn’t normal to […]

The Lost Lie: Exposing the Covert Manipulation of Gaslighting

A key ingredient in covert domestic abuse cases is a MASSIVE, insidious lie the abuser tells a victim’s friends and family to skew their perception of reality. This is called “gaslighting,” and it is one of the most sinister forms of psychological abuse and manipulation. Many states recognize it as a crime. Usually on a […]

What is “ABUSE”?

Abuse has the same root as the word “abnormal” … “ab.” Which means improper. ab-use. improper use. You’re being used. Which is improper in itself… but yeah, that’s what the VERB “abuse” means.

An old post from late October 2018

Found this hiding in my Google Drive… I wrote it on FB originally but I took it down from there. It’s good writing. I was definitely on to something BIG 🙂 I had no idea what would happen in the following six months! I had no idea I was being abused at the time or […]

When it comes to abuse, AWARENESS is the cure.

AWARENESS IS CURATIVE… When you know the REAL reason your life is a mess, you give yourself the power to see clearly again. And FYI… ALL TYPES OF ABUSE (financial, emotional, psychological, sexual *in addition to* physical abuse) happens without the influence of cannabis, Internet Geniuses. Abusers love to blame some external influence for their […]

Facebook’s censorship is OUT OF CONTROL.

Facebook’s censorship is OUT OF CONTROL.   I wonder…   … how many more abuse survivors are they silencing?   Fortunately, I’m not an idiot.   I’m going to keep writing, but I will do so in a place where the Facebook Nazis aren’t censoring truth in the name of “safety” — and in the […]
