To worry about all the women who start a thread about DV then disappear?

Or is it none of my business?

Am I the only one? Sadly there are regularly threads about a woman suffering abuse and/or violence at the hands of their partner. They are all generally encouraged to leave and quite often come back on the thread a few times to say how they are and what they're going to do.

But then, as far as I can see, they disappear. Maybe I just miss the threads where those women come back to update and say yes they've left their partner, yes they're ok, etc etc. Are there some and I just don't see them? Because it really worries me. When I read somebody is going through that it sticks in my mind and I think about it for days. When they never report back I can't help wondering if they're ok and if they're still suffering.

I'm not saying they 'owe' MNers an update, of course they don't, but do others out there worry too?

YANBU --- I have also wondered why people ask advice and then just seem to disappear !, I think that if you are asking people what you should do in a certain situation then its good manners to come back and let everyone know if you followed their advice

I know what you mean but I wasn't thinking of 'manners' as such, more 'what happened to them - did they leave the situation and are ok now or are they still putting up with that shit'..... sad
