visit abuse 101!

abuse 101


Abuse and domestic violence were once included in the original site website I designed - anxiety understanding - but had to be taken out when anxieties 101 became a reality. It was important to me to include this in information pertaining to mental health because I personally lived in domestic violence my entire life, but had never known about mental illness.


Even after visiting the emergency room almost everyday for one year, no one ever told me I might be experiencing an anxiety or panic attack. I had several endoscopic procedures and saw specialists regularly, even took Percocet while pregnant to control my chest pain because the specialists didn't understand what was causing me the unbearable pain.


I was finally diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder, depression and an eating disorder. I firmly assert that all victims of abuse and domestic violence need to engage in a mental health assessment when entering shelters, as well as their children. If mental health was a priority, perhaps it wouldn't take women so long to leave their abusive husband, partners, parents, or whoever instead of it taking up to seven times of leaving the abusive situation to finally leave for good.


The following pages are found on the abuse 101 website:


the homepage

if you are being abused now

about abuse

about control

about abuse of power



about abusive people

survival behaviors

emotional abuse

child abuse

bullies - both childhood and adult

for eating & sleeping disorder info ....

night eating


Welcome! Once again, I had to personally include eating and sleeping disorders in my own personal growth recovery journey so a website emerged concerning them all. I personally have dealt with night eating syndrome, an eating/sleeping disorder most of my life. I moderate a support group for night eaters, visit the site by clicking the above link to join the group. You'll see the link on every page to join.


Eating disorders, mental health, abuse, domestic violence are all connected. This was a very difficult part of my recovery. Although I beat eating at night, my sleep remains disordered and my eating habits are still not as healthy and consistent as they need to be.


To learn more about the site, just click on the link above! Here are the pages included within the night eating website:

different religions


Throughout my personal growth and recovery journey I've had to become very truthful with myself concerning how my religious beliefs swayed my thinking throughout my difficult past.

children 101


In keeping with my original theme in anxieties 101 - I wanted to take the gender/age groups a step further with their own personal sites. Information concerning children is of the utmost importance since children don't come with how to manuals when they are born; I feel it's important to look at our own upbringings, realize the results of the parenting practices of our parents and then teach ourselves what different parenting skills are needed to raise emotionally and physically healthy kids!

the self pages


The self pages started out because I found the need to learn more about myself in my personal growth recovery journey. This site speaks to "self" emotions and feelings; for example - self acceptance and self confident. It's important that we learn as much as possible about our own selves as we can't move forward in personal growth and recovery until we've faced our own self. Check it out. The following pages are available on this site!
