RECOVERING FROM CHILD ABUSE

I Am A Child
I am a child, who has been abused.
I am a child, who was been rejected by my parents.
I am a child, who has lost my childhood.
I am a child, that has many hurts.
I am a child, who needs love.
I am a child, who needs to heal.
I am a child, that wants some one to love me.
I am a child, that needs a some one to help me.
I am a child, that has been wounded by all kinds of abuse.
I am a child, that needs some one to take care of me.
I am a child, that is some one, I am a human being.
I am a child, that wants to be abuse free.
I am a child, who needs a family. A real family, without abuse.
~By Lela Albert 2007
(In Honor of Mark.  Mark was abused and has told on his abuser.)

How does child abuse affect you as an adult?

In very simple terms, life’s challenges are more difficult and seem more threatening to you. Adults who were abused as children have less developed coping skills and therefore are overwhelmed more easily and seem to react to stress in self-defeating ways.

Here is a list of symptoms people with traumatic childhoods can have:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Difficulty trusting people
  • Difficulty choosing a supportive partner in relationships
  • Difficulty with finding and keeping friends
  • Sensitivity
  • Self-isolation
  • Feelings of powerlessness
  • Feelings of fear
  • Feeling like a “bad” person
  • Impatience
  • Feeling angry at the world
  • Denial of feelings
  • Partial or complete forgetting of childhood memories
  • Physical health problems
  • Depression and anxiety/panic
  • Alcohol or drug problems

The first stage of healing

  • Beginning the healing process.
  • Setting treatment goals and figuring out how to reach those goals.
  • Establishing safety and stability and security.
  • Tapping into and developing one’s own inner strengths.
  • Controlling one’s emotions and managing symptoms.
  • Developing and strengthening skills.

Second stage

Is referred to as “remembrance and mourning.”

The main work of stage two involves:

  • Reviewing and/or discussing memories to lessen their emotional intensity.
  • Working through grief and its negative effects.
  • Mourning or working through grief about good experiences that one did not have, but that all children deserve.

Abuse Survivors Recovery

Definition Of Abuse:

Abuse comes in many forms and types.  To help you recover, we’ve included many pages on the various types of abuse below this text.  It’s hard to pinpoint why an abuser chooses a certain type of person.  Unfortunately, that’s usually one of the first things the victim tries to figure out…”why me?”  There is no real answer, and the question implies that the victim, somehow, feels at fault.  It’s not your fault!  It doesn’t matter what your abuser said…you did nothing to cause this.  The problem and the fault is all theirs.  You are a special, beautiful person that everyone should honor and respect.  Now…you’re a survivor.  Your focus must be on your recovery, not your abuse.  That’s why we created the Abuse Survivors Recovery pages.  To help you down the road to recovery.  You’ll find recovery pages for many types of abuse…even for abusers who want help to stop abusing.  I hope you find your help, here.  You didn’t deserve how you were treated.  We’ll try to help you find a normal, happy life…even after abuse.  Here are the top-selling Abuse Recovery Books to help you down that road.

Abuse is the action of a weak person who uses a position of authority, influence or physical strength to control their victim and commit emotional, violent or sexual acts upon them.  The actions committed vary with each abuser, from neglect, intimidation and threat, to sexual or physical violence.  The abusers also vary with respect to choice of victim, from close family members (most common) to total strangers, and from infants to senior citizens.  Most abusers stay within their chosen type of victim and type of abuse, though many, if left unchecked, will escalate to a more serious form of abuse.  For example, a physical abuser may escalate from intimidation and threat, to throwing things, to hitting, choking, rape, and even murder.  Without intervention, sexual abusers have a very high tendency to escalate the severity of their abuse.  This is why it’s very important to identify an abusive relationship early and get professional help and accountability to the authorities for the abuser.  It can save the lives of the victims and the abusers.  Each of our recovery pages is designed to help you get it stopped, then get help to recover.  As embarrassing and humiliating as it is for others to know what’s going on, it’s the only way to get it stopped so you can start healing.

Post-traumatic stress disorder

PubMed Health

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a type of anxiety disorder. It can occur after you’ve seen or experienced a traumatic event that involved the threat of injury or death.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may occur soon after a major trauma, or it can be delayed for more than 6 months after the event. When it occurs soon after the trauma, it usually gets better after 3 months. However, some people have a longer-term form of PTSD, which can last for many years.

PTSD can occur at any age and can follow a natural disaster such as a flood or fire, or events such as war, a prison stay, assault, domestic abuse, or rape. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, in the United States may have caused PTSD in some people who were involved, in people who saw the disaster, and in people who lost relatives and friends. These kinds of events can produce stress in anyone, but not everyone develops PTSD.

The cause of PTSD is unknown, but psychological, genetic, physical, and social factors are involved. PTSD changes the body’s response to stress. It affects the stress hormones and chemicals that carry information between the nerves (neurotransmitters). Having been exposed to trauma in the past may increase the risk of PTSD.

Having good social support helps to protect against PTSD. In studies of Vietnam veterans, those with strong support systems were less likely to get PTSD than those without social support.

People with PTSD re-experience the event again and again in at least one of several ways. They may have frightening dreams and memories of the event, feel as though they are going through the experience again (flashbacks), or become upset during anniversaries of the event.

Symptoms

People with PTSD re-experience the event again and again in at least one of several ways. They may have frightening dreams and memories of the event, feel as though they are going through the experience again (flashbacks), or become upset during anniversaries of the event.

Symptoms of PTSD fall into three main categories:

1. Repeated “reliving” of the event, which disturbs day-to-day activity

  • Flashback episodes, where the event seems to be happening again and again
  • Recurrent distressing memories of the event
  • Repeated dreams of the event
  • Physical reactions to situations that remind you of the traumatic event

2. Avoidance

  • Emotional “numbing,” or feeling as though you don’t care about anything
  • Feelings of detachment
  • Inability to remember important aspects of the trauma
  • Lack of interest in normal activities
  • Less expression of moods
  • Staying away from places, people, or objects that remind you of the event
  • Sense of having no future

3. Arousal

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Exaggerated response to things that startle you
  • Excess awareness (hypervigilance)
  • Irritability or outbursts of anger
  • Sleeping difficulties

You also might feel a sense of guilt about the event (including “survivor guilt”), and the following symptoms, which are typical of anxiety, stress, and tension:

  • Agitation, or excitability
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Feeling your heart beat in your chest (palpitations)
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Paleness
