Psychological violence

Tetuh Enjei
Posted June 13, 2018 from Cameroon

I have been undergoing psychological violence in the hands of a man. Tormenting me in every form, like running after other women, from one woman to the next. When he comes home, from one complain to the next. Even when things seems to be normal, to him everything is wrong. No peace at home. Children feel free in his absence. I think it is time for men, to know that violence is not only physical. Instead, the worst form of violence is psychological. Psychological here means the mind is never at peace, always being disturbed from one issue to the next.

No therapist, no support group nor family. I need advice on how to cope with this situation. Am already thinking of packing out of his house.

Hello, I live North West Region of Cameroon, where the anglophone crisis is taking place. I do not have anywhere to go. I am a contract teacher trying to raise some finances for myself and family. Am also a student in the university of Bamenda, just to overcome my frustration.

Hello, Tetuh,

I am sorry that you are going through this psychological abuse. That is really not fair for your husband to disrespect you. I hope you can find a support system there who can help you with possible options.

Thank you for sharing.

Wow true to note infact psychological torture is the worst. We need to protect our hearts and minds as women to mitigate the effects of such on our health and wellness.

Dear Tetuh,
Am so sorry for the torture that you and your children are going through. Violence is any form is very traumatizing and we should make sure that women and children are free from all forms of violence. Thank you for raising your voice against this violence. It is not easy for women to come up and speak about the violence that they are facing because they have been tortured too much and feel hopeless. You are stronger and through this story many more women will be inspired to come out and speak against gender based violence.
Stay blessed my dear. Well keep praying for you and your children.

Hello Tetuh,
Thank you for sharing this here and I believe it will encourage someone and make them understand that psychological abuse which to me I feel is worse than being beaten with a cane.
