    • Hi Kerro,

      You”re welcome.

      I am glad that they are out there. Sometimes wading through the good and the bad while you are in need of help is daunting. I’ve been collecting links for some time.



  1. Really useful resources, especially… on mothers. My mother was emotionally abusive to me for a long time. I was never believed. To a certain extent, I’m still not believed. I’ve worked on things somewhat, but it’s still really difficult, especially when talking to a therapist. “Stop telling him what he wants to hear” (concerning a psychologist) still echoes in my mind, even 29 years later. I had mixed feelings when my mother was diagnosed with Parkinson’s three years ago.. My mother-in-law has always wanted me to call her “Mom” but I say I have more respect for her than that.


    • Oh I’m sorry. I have trouble with the whole mother thing myself, my mother abused me in every way. I have recently found a woman who mothers me, but I am in terror about it all. Happy and in terror. Emotional abuse is one of those horrid things that we as a society gloss over because the other stuff is more obvious, but not less painful or less challenging to heal from.
      Good and healing thoughts to you.



      • Yes, exactly… it’s just skipped over a lot. I’ve said sometimes that I just wish my mother had fucked me, because maybe then I would have had a chance that people would believe me. Not that I really wish she would have, because I still got a lot of sexuality dumped into my lap when I was six, all supposedly for the intent of educating me. I couldn’t understand at the time why my hand was getting slapped.


      • I’m sorry that you struggle with that invisibility. I can totally understand that. I’m sorry that you were abused. Society is really good at being blind and when they can’t be blind to something then they are good at being cruel. I wish it were better. But I know that survivors can be good to one another and that that helps and heals.

        Good and healing thoughts to you.
