Abandonment Trauma


Recommended Posts

Being an adoptee as well as having an abusive mentally ill adoptive parent has my brain messed up. I've only dated abusive people and withdrawn into myself. I trust no one.

Now I have a wonderful caring man who understands my past. Whenever I spend time with him it's hard to leave him. I feel the abandonment all over again. It doesn't make sense but it hits me harder each time. I know I'll see him soon, but I don't want to leave. I don't want to be clingy either.

Not trying to be judgemental or anything like that, but is this man the one you mentioned in a previous thread, who gets loud and obnoxious when he drinks excessively?..............Or is this a different man?

Yes he is. However he was very open to discussing his drinking with me. I'm glad you brought that up though. I struggle with deciphering what's normal or dysfunctional within relationship
