Me today would have never stuck around.
Me nearly three years ago was in a much different place. I’m writing a memoir about the story. What let up to this, what happened, and how I got out. I’m hoping to release it later this year or early next.
I’m was in a very complicated situation and felt between a rock and a hard place. I also was naïve and couldn’t see the bigger picture. Plus, he’d been grooming me and I’d drank the kool-aid.
Omar Minwalla, PhD has been researching betrayal trauma and its impact on partners. My trust in myself and in my sense of reality was being systematically destroyed.
I’m hoping that’s no longer true. I’ve done lots of work examining what happened and healing my “self.”
Thank you very much for your comment. Your outrage touches me. Thank you for demonstrating the shocking nature of what happened here.
