To make a long story short,I was abused for as long as I can remember in my life. By my mom,her b/f and then marrying and staying with an abuser for 13 years.
I am in a good environment now,but..there are many mornings that I wake up,and have to remind myself that I am safe. It usually takes me a couple of hours to shake that feeling.
Last week,I could not shake the feeling that either something was wrong or something was going to happen.
I sat down and thought about it over the weekend and realized that last Tuesday would have been our anniversary date.. and the reason I had the bad feelings was because every year he would become physco because I refused to celebrate being married to him,and the fights and abuse would usually last for days.
I am certain that when we are traumatized in some way,it seems that it takes us a little longer to realize that we are ok once it is over.
Try to keep your mind off of it somehow,reading a book,or listening to music..
