Most vicitms are trapped in a bubble of inhumane behavior towards them daily…
It is abuse that goes on and on from their toxic abusers. A person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder will do anything to cause pain for their victim being that of all 4 types of abuse.
When a victim is able to attain an Order of Protection it can cause even more rage and fury in the abuser. That being said a victim literally gets further punishment for protecting oneself.
Diana found these numbers alarming…
In an article in the Huffington Post dated from 2014 states that 85% of women are victims of domestic violence and are held captive through physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and the last of the cycle is financial abuse. Granted 15% of these victims are men.
The Goal of the Abuser…
The main goal of the abuser is to destroy the target in any way possible to “Win” or to “Break them”. It is a demented mental state that their loved one is the person they wish to destroy.

Recent Research from Frederick Schiller University in Germany shows just how serious toxic people are. They found that exposure to stimuli that causes strong negative emotions, causes subjects brains to have a massive stress response. Furthering her research Diana found that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder along with Situation Depression and Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome (NAS) can follow these responses preventing victims from focusing on every day life. In other words they are not living, only suffering.
Once a victim is separated from the abuse they are in a realm “In Between Heaven and Hell”. They are away from their abuser yes but then the financial abuse has been placed upon them. Then there is the fear of not making ends meet, not having enough food and losing their home.
Americans can and do critisize other countries for the treatment of their women and yes the oppression is astounding however what are we doing to our own women? We’re abusing them, breaking them down, breaking their spirit, breaking them financially all the while expecting them to be the perfect mothers under this kind of duress. It becomes ironic when one thinks about how these women are abused and expected to “Rear Children While Being Abused”.
When you look at the statistics, the reality is that there is very little help, very little hope and very little chance these vicims will make it especially with more than one child. The court system does very little for victims and what’s left? Many stressed mothers trying to make it against the odds.
