Munchausen by Proxy abuse

Hi...my name is Jenny and I used to be a CL here....left due to bad arthritis in my hands(thank goodness for voice recognition software).

Anyhow, I found out about 3 years ago that I am a survivor of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy abuse. My mom used to simulate asthma attacks in me as a toddler and later would push me down the stairs, claiming I was clumsy.

Being an MSbP survivor is lonely because it is a rare disorder. I would really love to find anohter who has been through this to share the problems of recovery.

Anyone here with this kind of past?

thank you................Jenny

I am so sorry to hear about your past. It sounds awful. Are you getting some professional help?

Welcome back to the board, Jenny!! :)

I just wanted to say hi and let you know I saw your post.  I am hoping someone will see you post that understands what has happened with your mom.  I am sorry that happened.  I am always here if you need to talk.
