Bodies in the Basement: A Serial Story for Survivors of Abuse
by Aubrey Cole
This collection comprises over two years of my writing for a support site I started years after I had finally ended my marriage. I promised myself at the time that I would keep the writing raw, so that others having the same experiences could feel that I was able to truly understand them, for so few people do.
I have designed this to be read as a situational resource. In other words, whatever you are facing in the moment can probably be addressed by one of the specific sections. Each essay has information that takes time to internalize, so a little at a time is best. This also means you can re-read each entry multiple times to get the most out of it, when you really need it. If you do it right, recovery from abuse is a special kind of grieving process. You have to get through the grief to find your strength and give the abuser a giant middle finger.

20 Traits of Emotional Abusers
by Mags Thomson
It doesn’t matter what you call them our parent or our partner, whether we refer to them as our abuser, a bully or a toxic person (in fact I use these three labels interchangeably). There seems very little difference in how the abuse is perpetrated. The behaviors, strategies, games… they are all varieties on the same theme.
Are you dealing with a bully or an emotional abuser in your life? Are you not sure? This book will give you some insight in the typical behaviors and tactics that emotional abusers use against their targets.
No Contact & Abuse Recovery
by Aubrey Cole and Mags Thomson
It is often a complex decision for the target, in part because it is so greatly misunderstood by outsiders. They often see the decision to go no contact as a form of revenge or punishment, which makes it even more difficult and complex for the target to implement this ultimate act of self-care.
I did not have close loving ties to my family, I had nothing but sticky stinky strings.
In order to help your understanding, and support you in your decision to go no contact, here are some resources on the topic.
