Welcome to a place I hope you can find some answers & solutions to what ever kind of abuse you or a loved one has gone through. 
For myself I have suffered Sexual , Emotional , Verbal , and Physical abuse. Today I found a way out, a way to heal the past. It took me a long time. 11 years of therapy and  the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous & Al_Anon and a loving God of my understanding. I also read a lot of books on it . Making this page helps me to. It is only what I put into my recovery today , how close I am to my God and my attitude.
Thank you for stopping by and again take your time, get the help necessary and be good to you!!! No one deserves to be treated like garbage! God didn't make junk!!
God Bless Hugs Donna S.


What is abuse? It means to misuse, to use improperly, to use up, or to injure by maltreatment. Let me give you a brief definition of the four types of abuse.

Sexual abuse: considered to be the most degrading and offensive. It consists of molestation, rape, incest, exhibitionism, voyeurism, obscene phone calls, etc.

Emotional abuse: withholding of love, attention, loving touches, or words of acceptance. Love is only given based on acceptable performance, etc.

Abandonment: would fall under the category of emotional abuse and can occur when one or both parents leave the child physically or mentally. Adults can also experience the devastating effects of abandonment if important people in their lives leave suddenly or violently.

Verbal abuse: People must hear loving words of acceptance to develop properly. Verbal abuse can be overt or covert. Overt: aggressive, angry words which tell you that you are flawed or unacceptable Covert: loving words withheld

Physical abuse: beatings, unfair discipline, locked in closets or dark rooms, food withheld, etc.

The effects of abuse can be devastating and long lasting. Many people never recover from abuse.
Many of you reading this article have also been abused, or you deal with someone in your life who comes from an abusive, dysfunctional background.  Click on Help for the Healing and see what Joyce Meyer has to say.

Abuse in families can take many forms. It may be physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, or a combination of any or all of those. Neglect - when parents don't take care of the basic needs of the children who depend on them - can be a form of abuse.

 



This page is dedicated especially to all the children
around the world who have
not only lost their innocence,
but in many cases their lives due to
some form of abuse or maltreatment.
God Bless them all.

 






 


Neglect is probably the hardest type of abuse to define. Neglect occurs when a child doesn't have adequate food, housing, clothes, medical care, or supervision. Emotional neglect happens when a parent doesn't provide enough emotional support or deliberately and consistently pays very little or no attention to a child. But it's not neglect if a parent doesn't give a kid something he or she wants, like a new computer or a cell phone

 

Family violence can affect anyone, regardless of religion, color, or social standing. It happens in both wealthy and poor families and in single-parent or two-parent households. Sometimes parents abuse each other, which can be hard for a child to witness. Some parents abuse their children by using physical or verbal cruelty as a way of discipline. Both girls and guys can experience abusive physical punishment by a parent
