I have PTSD from severe child abuse.
My father abused us. Physically. Mentally. Verbally. Emotionally. Any way he could, really.
My mother never stopped it from happening.
She would further give reasons why we were abused.. As if it was our fault.
Then, she would tell us that we were not abused, after being abused.
I truly believed that.. Until I was 29 years old. And I had a mental breakdown.
My father also killed our family pets in front of our family. I have night terrors that keep me awake at night. When I first cut ties with my family, I would lock the doors during the day and keep checking the locks when I would hear loud noises.
My oldest brother, molested me from the ages of 9 to 11.
After I confronted him that what he was doing was wrong, he hated me so thoroughly. And then he became physically abusive towards me.
I am no longer in contact with my parents or brothers.
I am struggling with the abuse that happened.
I have a lot of anger. Frustration. And difficulty speaking my mind.
I am trying to overcome a lifetime of abuse.
I have a few serious health issues.
I was diagnosed with acute chronic kidney failure in September 2017.
I am currently on Dialysis, every other day.
I have Diabetic Macular Edema that I receive eye injections for, every 4 weeks to prevent me from going completely blind.
I have PTSD, anxiety, and depression from said abuse.
And a few other things.. Endometriosis. Gastroparesis. Retinopathy. Neuropathy.
I am married to an amazing, kind and generous man.
His name is Phill.
He means the world to me!
I have known him since I was 7 years old and he was 9 years old.
We have been friends longer than we haven't been friends. And he is the love of my life. He knows me better than anyone.
I need help to heal my kind and beautiful soul. I just want to live life and be as happy as I once was.
