Help?

Can anyone tell me if this is abusive?

Long story short, some stuff is coming to light from my soon to be exhusband. I'm so confused about everything. He constantly tells me that I've done things that I've never done. Here's a message (some info has been dotted out for safety sake):

I really wish you would have called me before messaging me these awful things that you promised you would never do again. One, ...

Struggling to care for my sick toxic mother

My relationship with my mother has been complicated my whole life. She is a very controlling, manipulative and insecure person, and I suspect she may have the narcissistic personality disorder.

I kind of learned to live with this and deal with her mood swings in my own way, and never really questioned her behaviour. However, in the past few years I started making a career at a job I love, and my self-confidence grew tremendously. ...

I Miss my Abusive/Mentally Ill Mother

Quick background: I realize today that although well-regarded and very intelligent, my mother is somewhat mentally ill. She is narcissist and her mother was too, but not to me. My father felt stuck and projected all his anger towards my mother onto me (I was scapegoated). My mother joined him in this. I was 13.

I got well when I was 43. They and everyone just sort of had to accept this. I wasn’t aware ...

Confusing behavior of lady friend in DV situation

For many months we kindled a friendship and it was immediately comfortable like we were boyfriend/girlfriend, in contact in person or through text morning to night. At first I wasn't sure I wanted a relationship, but she got to my heart and then I started to feel weird that we only ...

Tempted to move in with verbally abusive woman

I was raised by a domineering mother who was verbally abusive. She was always yelling at me, talking down to me condescendingly and saying hurtful things to me. I'm not sure if it's considered being physically abusive but she frequently spanked me..often for no good reason..she would just fly off the handle. She was a high functioning alcoholic and yes she was all the meaner after a few drinks.

So here it is a couple ...
