We can be contacted via admin.our.place@gmail.com Please note that you may experience a delay between registering your account and validating before you are able to post as we do also manually process all registrations to keep this forum free of spam.

  1. Hi all Well it has been a while, six years to be exact since I posted on this forum and other forums. My original nickname was Maddie. Four years ago I finally left my abusive husband and during my ten year marriage I kept a private diary detailing the abuse, to validate my feelings and to use for legal reasons, if necessary. Roll on to now and I decided to write a book based upon my diary, plus give some advice on how to recognise and deal with verbal abuse:- https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N0TUGD6 (UK) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N0TUGD6 (US) https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B01N0TUGD6 (AU) (amend your country accordingly) Here is some more information about my book (Emily is a pseudonym, by the way):- It was very hard to write and brought back many memories that I had buried but I wanted to share it because the thing I wanted the most during that time was validation. I wanted to know that I wasn't going mad and that the awful gut wrenching pain I felt was real and not exaggerated in my own mind. I hope you get a chance to read it - download it whilst it is free! I put a link to the Our Place forum in the self help section at the end of the book :-) I'm happy to also send you a copy if you cannot afford it. Just PM me. Love Naiomi aka Maddie
