Why do I sit here and write my nonsense? Partially to remind myself, who I am and partially to tell all of you, who I am.
I was a headstrong, independent career woman, who came from a caring, if not perfect family. I still wound up in a domestically-abusive relationship, As Rosie Batty has said,
“If it can happen to me, it can happen to anybody.”
In fact many of the women I have met through this experience, come from similar backgrounds. We come from all professions, all socio- economic levels. The main pattern I have noticed is, that we, migrants do appear to be more vulnerable. We are not the bunch of sad, pathetic losers portrayed to me that day on my legal,studies course.
What can I say? You need to be extremely sure of somebody before you change countries with them, because once they have you away from your support network, you are acutely vulnerable, no matter your prior experiences and level of education.
Rosie Batty is herself a migrant.
It is time to stop the financial, physical and mental toll toxic people take on our global society.
We were told that something like over seventy percent of women’s health issues in my group we attended for abuse survivors, are apparently caused by abuse. When a woman presents with health issues repeatedly, there appears to be a good chance that there is an abuser in their life.
I always view long-suffering partners with sceptic8sm these days.
I would go so far as to suggest I am suspicious of gaslighting in many cases of dementia.My ex’s grandmother had dementia. It was also clear to me that like her father, her husband was an abusive bully, She had grown up having to hide outside with her mother and sblings when her father came home in a volatile mood, so she probably knew no different, He was also strangely terrified of dogs.
There was a weird incident where she had chopped up an antique table. Perhaps she had felt the same way about it as I felt about the coffee table upon which my blood had been shed. Her husband is described as having used to hammer with his fist on the table in his rage, His son had gone on to become an alcoholic and die on the streets.
TO EXPERIENCE NARCISSISTIC ABUSE IS TO FALL DOWN A RABBIT HOLE INTO A STRANGE WORLD WHERE BLACK IS WHITE AND DOWN IS UP.
No guy other than my ex has made me feel quite like it. Not even Mr “Who Can I Con Into Sewing On My Button For Me?”
For me it has been one long round of The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party,
It is apparently sane to want to control everyone. Yeah I forgot Hitler was totally sane, I mean in most circles he used to be described as an insane madman!
Didn’t he wund up dead in a bunker?
BTW WATCH OUT FOR THE ELDERLY
I have nearly been mown down by electric wheelchairs twice. I don’t even think Alice had to contend with that, Maybe some people need driving lessons and L plates 😂,
The art is not to run until you can see the whites of their eyes!
YOU HAD BETTER PRAY I NEVER GET A MOBILITY SCOOTER AS IF WE ARE EVER ON A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD, YOU AREGOING DOWN!
I have decided if I have to get one I am going to need swords on the wheels, much easier mowing people down where I would need to have good aim!
Dad used to have a point system in the car. Old people were a soft target so you didn:t get many points. Looks like some elderly are fighting back
Don’t forget I already spent months in a wheelchair and I saw what fun our French student had got up to in mine before he had his foot run over at my Aunt’s.
