Hi! I’m Audrey and I am the founder of The Mighty Daisy blog. Several years ago, I left a verbally and sexually abusive marriage. The truth is I should have left long before I
When I was finally on my own, I was a mess. Slowly but surely, I started to remember how capable and resourceful I was, and I began to find myself again. My years married
I started to notice that there were some other changes in me. I was constantly anxious and I always seemed to have a knot of anxiety in my core. I would snap out of nowhere in certain situations. I dreaded the weekend for some reason I couldn’t figure out. I felt so ashamed of what I let happen to me and what had become of me.
What really clued me into how bad my marriage was, was when I met my now husband Tom. He’s wonderful, loving, and so supportive. Now I know why it never worked with anyone else. I also know now what a healthy relationship looks like, which really shined the light on everything that I tried to hide during my marriage to Steve. This led to me falling into a depression and my feelings of guilt and shame grew exponentially.
I decided to seek counselling and learned that what I was feeling were symptoms of PTSD from narcissistic abuse. Everything in my world all of a sudden just made sense. I started learning everything that I could about it and was fascinated that every story I came across was my story. I started to feel so much better knowing that I wasn’t the only one who had this experience in a relationship.
Then in 2016, my worst nightmare came true. My daughter disclosed to me that she was sexually abused by my ex-husband, her father. I was devastated, but I knew that how I reacted would affect how she would heal, so I went right to work to get an attorney and fight my abuser for sole custody. No longer was a afraid of Steve and have been fighting him to present in court.
I had so much support and encouragement from friends, family,
I plan to post around 1-2 times per week about various topics related to empowerment, narcissistic abuse, mental health, and other topics related. I also will be blogging about frugal living, money, and savings because I have found that finances are a lot of the reasons why women stay way too long in abusive relationships. Remember if I can do it, you CAN too!
So that is the very abridged story about me. Tell me about you! Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
