I remember feeling anger and fury boil up in me when my mother and stepfather would laugh at me at the dinner table when I was in a bad mood.

It seems to trigger my paranoia and insecurities from the abuse and what I used to think it meant about me as a person.

Being laughed destroys my sense of worth. Takes me a long time to feel good about myself again.

How can people be so cruel?

Same with me. My first abuser laughed at me and I hated it. It made me feel like there was something wrong with me. I can take a joke and join in some laughter bu t if I'm not in the know or in on it then it can trigger some pretty powerful emotions.

it doesn't help that i perpetuate the crime against myself. i'm a pro at putting myself down - but in a manner that sounds like a joke. everyone assumes i'm kidding and people get a good laugh, while inside i'm dying one piece at a time.

knowing this hasn't helped. telling myself they're laughing with me instead of laughing at me hasn't helped. i still get triggered, still plummet to the depths of anguish.

i don't like this cycle and i know of no way out.
