I am free, and still trapped
I need help getting some answers. My whole life I have suffered abuse. My mother would beat me, threaten me, and keep me in a whirlwind of confusion that began to transform into self hate. Just this last year I turned 18 and left. I live in a different town now, and I have cut contact with her and anyone close to her. For the first time in my life I have tried getting help, but to no avail. I have read about Stockholm syndrome and depression and how to get through the terrible memories. So I need to know, is it too late to tell my story and see any justice? Is there another route to fin someone who is willing to listen and actually understand? please.
