Personal Stories

The following are other people’s stories about their own experiences of abuse. I have not edited any of them for content — the only changes I’ve added have been to format them for html. I have made no effort to establish the veracity of any of them and will not do so — they sound true to me so I included them. Use them at your own risk; your mileage may vary.

The organization of the list is chronological by order of inclusion on this page. The stories discuss many kinds of abuse: relationship abuse, sexual abuse, child abuse, child sexual abuse, etc.

Please note that these stories may trigger memories in those who have also experienced abuse. It may be a good idea to have someone available to be supportive before reading them, or to discuss reading these stories with a counselor prior to doing so. This is not for the faint of heart.
