I don't know why I am struggling to come to terms that I am the victim of abuse.
Welcome to the forum. The horrible past memories are tough to deal with and no doubt cause you feel low about yourself. The feelings you have is totally understandable and you must suffer everyday from these horrible memories. The constant reminder must hurt and affect your day to day activity. Please remember YOU ARE A SURVIVOR and it's about dealing with one day at a time.
Yes, I know it's hard. but you are among people who understand your feelings. I hope you are seeing a therapist or getting group therapy as that will help you. I strongly suggest that you write your feelings down in the private diary function on this forum as it will help you. It might help you reading your feelings and a way to release the pain your are suffering emotionally.

Thank you so much for those words. I am currently seeing a College/University counselor on a weekly bases but I don't think that I helping much. I feel like I am just re-living my past experiences more than ever. I also feel like I am not moving forward with healing or moving forward.
Thank you for suggesting group therapy, I have never thought of that but I think I could try it.
I have been and currently is psychical and mental abused by my father. I don't think I have ever safe around him.
I am really sorry to hear that. I think you need to tell your counselor that you do not feel it is helping. As suggested above, group therapy might work wonders.

Thank you so much. I am thankful for being in the forum because here I feel like I can let it all out, all my thoughts and emotions. In the real world I feel like I am in this big room with so much people in it and I am screaming at the top of my lungs and nobody turns around.
