and I still flinch when things come near my head, I am about to be hit, or have something thrown at me by my toddler. is there any way I can get over this so I don't seem weak to him? I think my toddler finds it amusing, but I don't.

I went through a similar situation with my kid. You really need to seek professional help to deal with your anxiety. Your kids need to see you as very strong and in control not weak. I know how hard it is to talk about, but if your kids are like mine they will start acting out once they pick up on your anxiety and discomfort. These issues tend to seep back into your life once your kids reach the age you were when your abuse started. Meeting them head on by yourself or with a therapist can make all the difference.
