Is it verbal/emotional abuse?

Postby ekskor17 » Sun Apr 30, 2017 2:05 am

My parents call me lazy, socially unaware, and immature more often than they call me by my name. They constantly mimic how me and my sister act and tease me incessantly about trivial things after I asked them to stop. When I try to stand up for myself or my sister in one of these situations, they just yell even harder. They spank my brother once or twice every couple weeks, just often enough to scare me. They haven't said it, but I'm scared they're going to hit me. They constantly scedule my and then get mad when I point out what the schedule says. They also blame and punish me if my four-year-old brother makes a mess after I do my chores. The make little comments unintentionally that make me feel super bad about myself ('Did you really eat that much') (I'm borderline anorexic). To be honest, I have struggled with anxiety, OCD, social phobia, and borderline anorexia for six plus years. Is it verbal/emotional abuse or am I just overreacting?

I'm constantly yelled at, called names, mocked, and having offhand comments made about me. I am talking about my parents, and they said there doing there best to look out for me, apparently. Am I looking at this wrong, or was I abused?

I would call it both. It's definitely sounds like verbal abuse and it takes it's toll on you that it also becomes emotional abuse. I seemed to have gone through the same thing and it was labeled "hypocritical parent." That is very hard to overcome, as I have learned. Be strong, you are dealing with so much but just try to look at the positive things that you look forward to, so that you reach out for those thoughts when you feel overwhelmed with only the negativity around you.
