When you first think of going no contact with your abuser, you may think that it’s as simple as just ignoring the phone calls. There is more to it than that.
In this podcast about my no contact anniversary, I talk about more complicated emotions like anger and guilt, and how sometimes we feel tired of recovery.
PTSD really is a normal response to trauma. In this PTSD podcast, Aubrey and Mags everything from what it is, to how it can manifest and how it relates to the experiences of toxic relationships, dysfunctional childhoods, and abuse.
Many survivors of abuse chose to "go no contact" with their abuser. It is a state in which we deny the abuser direct access to us. We are often accused of selfishness (especially those who cut contact with their parents or siblings), but no contact is not about the abuser.
In this podcast Aubrey is joined by Andrew Willis and Barry Goldstein of Stop Abuse Campaign. to discuss connections between adverse childhood experiences and adult health.
