To ask your experience of abusive relationships?

I was in an abusive (physical, emotional, financial) relationship until Dec 2018.

I have had extensive therapy and am now in a happy relationship but I am still affected by the previous relationship almost every day. I have PTSD and trust issues that seem hard to resolve. I have also lost my "sense of self" and trust in my own thoughts and feelings.

Is this normal? I'm not sure if it's a reasonable question to ask, as I know everyone is different, but it would be helpful to know how others have been affected by abusive relationships and what helped them to recover? I feel sad that the person I was before that relationship might be gone forever.

Thank you thanks

I am a first-time poster and have just realised this wasn't the right place for this post. Apologies, have re-posted in relationships.
