I dont think I have ever felt so alone.. or so isolated in my entire life.
Every single persons reaction has suprised me.
My enemies have come running to support me, my family has dismissed me, my friends have sat on the fence.
Never have I been so tempted to just pack the car, drive to Cape York and start a fresh with a new name.
I can not wait until I rebuild myself solely to help other DV Victims.
So many people (and services) protect the perp.
Words can not discribe the hurt.
NOW I wish I had stayed longer, I wish he had seriously maimed me, I wish he had hospitalized me, I wish he had nearly killed me.. then maybe people would understand.
I am a DV surviver. But it doesnt feel like that right now. Right now I feel like an outcast and a lier.. because thats how others treat me.
I know what I'm doing is right.
I prey daily it will become easier.
I wish there was a simple fix.
I'm still dead inside.
Yes I'm in councilling.
Yes I have professional support.
No.. it doesn't 'fix' it.
I sleep with the lights on and wake hourly.
I hate my life.
There will be SOO many people who will read this and not post.. and that's okay.. all I ask is that if ANYONE in your life ever tells you they have lived through DV.. don't dismiss their pain.. it's like being stabbed all over again. It hurts beyond words.

Hugs, people can be very frustrating sometimes, especially those who are closest to us such as friends/family. I know some people are very good at not showing their "true" colours to other people, so when it comes out, others tend not to believe what has happened.
You sound like a strong person & I think it's great that you want to use your experiences to help others.

Thank you for your post! You are right- just by reading this I know that I can offer my friend in a bad marriage more support.
Sending you lots of hugs and to know you are so strong x
