A post shared by Allie (@allie) on Aug 7, 2018 at 3:42pm PDT This is a great post!
I’ve been a teacher for more than two decades.
I’m a teacher of English, and I’ve had a great time helping people through my job.
I’ve never experienced abuse.
My wife and I were not involved in any kind of abuse or harassment by our students.
When we got married, I had been teaching for about ten years.
When I was asked by my wife about my experience teaching in my 20s, I was shocked.
I wasn’t a trained professional.
I didn’t know much about psychology.
I had never taught at all.
But I did have a passion for teaching, so I took the risk and went into my own teaching.
I was incredibly lucky to have a wonderful, supportive wife and kids.
The next couple of years were really hard for me.
I lost my job, my relationship with my family, and my family lost a member.
The abuse started to surface a few months ago.
I went to my doctor with my symptoms.
I also went to a counselor and a therapist.
I tried to tell them everything.
But, as I was going through the counseling, I realized that the only person I was seeing was myself.
I could tell by how much stress I was under that I was in the process of having a heart attack.
I told the counselor and therapist what I had.
I talked about the fact that I had to be able to handle the stress of the situation.
They told me that I should see a doctor.
My doctor did not see me until the following week, but I told him what had happened to me and told him about what had been happening with my wife.
He said, “You should talk to a psychologist.
I would be happy to talk with you about it.”
So I did.
The therapist did not give me any other information.
The only thing I did was tell him about the depression and anxiety that had been building in me for so long.
I felt so vulnerable, so scared.
But my wife was so supportive.
I never thought anything would happen to her, and that was the most important thing.
I just knew that my wife would take care of me.
It’s a good thing she did, because I was a total wreck for a month.
But the anxiety and depression that I experienced was more than I could handle.
I am so grateful for my wife and all the support she gave me throughout this time.
I know my experience could have been much worse, and it’s important to note that I never received any kind or level of help from the teacher who abused me.
There are so many things that can happen to you, and no one knows it better than you.
And, if you do not know what to do about it, I think you should go to the doctor.
You can find out more about the type of abuse you’re experiencing here.
