Mickie discovered an on-line list and description of emotions experienced by abused women.  The information was created by Rape and Abuse Crisis Center and, along with their descriptions, Mickie adds her personal experiences and feelings associated with each emotion.

“It’s still amazing to me”, Mickie laments, “that we abused women try to save our marriages, make excuses for our abusers and are embarrassed to tell others about our life at home”.  The emotional reality of abused women is a roller coaster!
