Blain Nelson's Abuse Pages
Other People's Experiences With Abuse

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. In ASAR terms, this whole area should be considered spoilered.
