@Kalynnj24 Hey, I took a look at your profile and saw that you have PTSD like me. I hope you're ok, going through abuse is scary. PLEASE if you need help you can call the national domestic violence hotline. Their number is 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). I think they have a chatline now too online on their site. 

Or you can talk to us on here!

I can totally relate to the spousal abuse.  In an abusive marriage right now and could use support.

@jasmine1092‍   @castledepress‍  i just wish it was easy to get out but I don't make enough money to get out on my own and support myself and child. It really makes it hard trying to go through everyday walking on eggshells and not want to upset him or make him mad cause of how he will react...

@Kalynnj24 Omg.....I do the exact same thing.  Always walking on eggshells.  I never know what's going to make her explode.  Before I always said that I live in a prison with a time bomb, now with this quarantine it's like living in a prison within a prison with a time bomb.  I don't make enough money to get out either.

Yeah that's exactly how it is! And now since I've gained some weight I can tell he looks at me differently. I mean not too much I'm an XL and used to be a medium. But I see him looking at other women and it hurts me so bad. I just wish it could be easier. It makes my depression so much worse.

@Kalynnj24 Girl big is beautiful, you don't need to feel insecure about your body, be proud of what you got and who you are. Don't worry about the way them other girls look, because being skinny is not really always a good thing. Just be confident in yourself.

@castledepress Girl if that man is hitting on you, LEAVE!!!! You do not need that in your life, cause a real man would never put his hands on a female like that and that's just the truth.
