It has been over 2 years since my abuser went to prison. Over 2 years since he has tortured me, strangled me, beat me.. When do i heal?

Answered

My ex left me with broken bones, scars that will never heal, ptsd, children who saw him do these things and traumatized them as well. I have nightmares of him drowning me in the tub, bashing my face in and punching me until my ribs broke, strangling me and choking me until i blacked out, dragging me down the hall by my hair, making me choose what belt he would beat me with, just to name a few things. When and how do i get over it? How do i heal??

You forgive because you’re supposed to but you don’t forget. You protect you and your children. You walk away stronger and smarter. You teach your children to be strong and loving people. No one deserves to be hurt. Prayers for you sister.

Talk. Tell your story, whether it’s to a therapist, friends, family, coworkers or strangers.
