After the Abuse: The Price of Speaking Out



Speaking Out Anyway

Before I opened up about the abuse, I had taken into account that there might be consequences. I was terrified of what my abuser would do if he ever found out I’d talked. Maybe some people would get mad at me, call me a liar, a drama queen; maybe some would stop talking to me. But I decided to speak out anyway, and I do not regret it.

I know I’m telling the truth. I have no proof and no witnesses. Some people believe me: there’s nothing I can do to convince those who choose not to, or those who for their own comfort simply decide to turn a blind eye.

But I’m not gonna stop speaking out. And if there are people who decide to shun me for it, so be it.

  1. I’m in the phase of trying to separate and no contact with my boyfriend of 12 yrs. My story is very long but is quite similar to the rest. My abuser has/continues to mentally, physically, emotionally, and psychologically abuse me. I’m afraid of him and what he might do if I completely stop contact with him. And a piece if paper or a 911 call will never prevent him from anything. I’ve empowered myself by reading blogs, others stories, and any information I can to try and help me. but still I am being pulled back because of the threats of harm and having our daughter taken completely from my life. He keeps me on a tight rope by ‘making’ me do meth with him so its in my system. I am currently under dss for his CDV and meth use. No one understands what I’m going thru and the reasons I can’t just leave him alone. This is very stressful and I knowit’s only going to get worse. I don’t know how to get help or get someone to understand my situation before I loose my daughter. I’m desperate and would like anyone’s advice please thank you
