Anyone know anything or have you yourself experienced brainwashing? Combined with the violence I experienced personally I often find myself really believing things that aren't true that were driven in by a sadist. For example, this is gross, sorry, I sometimes believe my insides are rotten and they're falling out during my period because he would tell me he was carving chunks of me out and sometimes I didn't know if the blood was from my period or him. This is deliberately trying to mess someone up. Also, he told me he knew I wasn't really a kid and I was an animal and he could tell when he looked in my eyes that my soul was more like a dog's than a person's. This particular thing has sadly messed me up so much I have a hard time making eye contact. I know it's not true but sometimes I literally am afraid someone is going to find out I have a dog soul. How do you handle a deliberate lie that's been cemented by other trauma like that? Has it lessened for you over time? I know therapy is huge but I was just curious how you stop those thoughts.
