|Survivors Support Networking|
|I hope that this will be one of my most important pages. My aim of this survivors support-networking page is to link survivors to other survivors in order for people to give and receive support. The idea is that people come here and leave their names and other information if they are willing to provide support. Then others can come and look at the names and see if there is anyone they would like to chat to. Hopefully friendships should be formed and people can give and receive a lot of support. In theory the people leaving their names should be receivers and well as givers of support. I really hope this idea works, because I think it could be very useful to people.
As survivors of abuse and bullying we can feel very alone and isolated and I hope that this idea will help people if they feel like this. Just chatting to someone with similar experiences can make all the difference.
|If you want to put your details on this page, take a look at mine and see if you are happy with the information you have to provide. *Please note that the brief outline of your experiences need only be very brief and need not reveal much about you, it is just so that people, if they wish, can find people with similar experiences.*

Brief Outline Of Experiences - Bullying - Several occasions of verbal abuse, but recently, head slammed against a wall, punched causing black eye, punched and hit over head causing lumps and kicked causing bruises... :o( They chased me, but I managed to outrun them, if they'd have caught me, they threatened to kill me.
Any Other Comments - I'm not sure of anyone can help me, but if you could give me any information about what I could do, I would be deeply grateful. I'm just so scared that they are going to come after me again, because they said they would, even if it kills them...

Age - Most say I act like an adult, so I'll say a very mature 13 year old.
Brief Outline Of Experiences - I've been molested by the person I trust most, my father and the court still hasn't sentenced him. I have been in another wierd situation with my sister. I have been bullied for a long time and I am trying not to think about self-harm anymore. I probably would have died had my knife not have been too dull to cut much. I am afraid of touch, so I am, in a way, anti-social. I feel obsolete and blame everything on myself. I have severe flashbacks sometimes.
Any other comments - I am used to giving advice, so I will help you when I can.

Brief Outline Of Experiences - Bullied in primary and secondary school, have been depressed and self-injured. Feel I'm now through the SI, but the depression still resurfaces on occasion.
Any Other Comments - I'm online 24/7, and quite an insomniac, but if I don't reply on msn don't panic, it just means I am away from my computer and have forgotten to change my status.

Brief Outline Of Experiences - I was rejected by my mother and father when I was 4. They left me with my grandparents until my mother was pregnant with my baby sister. In short I was a suido mother from age 8 on, my mother was a morphine addict who beat me and emotionally abused me everyday. Her long line of boyfriends would beat me and her last ex-husband beat all of us but she would never leave him. He tried to shoot me, my mother and my baby boy. She went back to him after that too. She made me lie, steal and commit at least 20 misdemeanours before I was 16. I was what social workers call the targeted child. By age 16 I had been in an abusive relationship of my own, raped 3 times and was a recovering self-injurer.

Brief Outline Of Experiences - I was married when I was 5 months pregnant. The month after I married 'him' the abuse began. He cut the power off in my appartment so I couldn't call anyone, threatened to flatten my tires if I tried to leave him, taped my phone conversations, screamed at me when I was having contractions (while I was begging him to stop - which I have on video - he taped our 'argument' to prove I was 'antagonizing' him), claimed I was hallucinating and fabricating the things he was doing to me, tried to convince me I was mentally ill, called my doctors and claimed I was going to kill myself and my unborn child (not at ALL true), threw things against the wall, told me to get the f*ck out of his face, constantly threatened suicide (when I called his parents to help me, he told them to get the f*ck out of our appartment or he'd call the police and they left me there with him), he wouldn't take the dogs out to pee while I was on bedrest and told me I was to let them sh*t and p*ss on the floor. So i'de take them out myself then he'd call the doctor and say I wasn't obeying my bedrest and putting my unborn child at risk. Final event - put pills in his mouth and washed them down (found out later he didn't really do this) with beer and held a gun to his head, pulled the trigger (no bullets) to 'prove a point' and then lied to the police and told them I had made everything up because I was 'delusionally depressed.'
