Survivor's Name:


Survivor's Story: I was married for 10 years and managed to leave him a year ago but now have problems sleeping, flashbacks, get suddenly teary, jumpy, anxious, and fearful of men. I'm a professional woman and cannot believe I let this happen to me.

I was emotionally abused and neglected as a child.

I saw a therapist for 5 months and she said what happened was "dead stuff" implying I should forget about it and tried to get me to talk about childhood stuff. I now see a psychiatrist who has me on several medications.

He gave me methamphetamine so I would become disinhibited and sit on is face and defecate in his mouth. He hid the drugs in the house and would give it when he wanted sex. I became addicted. This went on in the contest of emotional abuse and what I have since found out is called gaslighting.

I didn't even consider it might have been rape until I recently saw a divorce lawyer and he suggested it. I was so shocked but slowly it became obvious.

I feel so ashamed and dirty. I reel back just thinking about it.
