I went through an physically and emotionally abusive relationship which ended last year.
I was afraid of telling people because I felt guilty for what happened even though I know it wasn't my fault. I recently found out that some of my supposed "closest friends", are telling other people that I lied about it and saying it never happened and that I was making it up for the attention. Apparently because they never saw a bruise, it never happened.
Has anyone else experienced this?
I was abused and people are calling me a liar... Watch

I'm so sorry this has happened to you, I haven't been through this but I think you need to speak to the police if you haven't already and as difficult as it may seem, try to distance yourself from your friends, only surround yourself with positive people who will be there for you. Have you spoken to your family about what happened? If it was a long term relationship maybe your friends are also friends with your ex partner and have just been getting different stories? Regardless, you deserve better, don't let them get you down and well done for getting out of it and knowing that you are not to blame

That's just horrible and shows they aren't real friends. Abuse isn't just physical. It's emotional too.

The problem with situations like this is that there are many people out there who will fake being abused in an effort to garner attention and sympathy. I've known many such people. It's difficult from the outside to tell who's telling the truth and who isn't.
If I were you, I'd go to the police and seek legal action against the person who abused you. Do your family know/believe you?
