Held hostage by my former partner weilding the legal system

I'm now just over 14 months removed from an extremely abusive relationship (I own my share in it as - contrary to popular belief - I find that abusive relationships are very rarely one-sided).

We first met about 7 years ago in a cushy private D&A rehab / mental health clinic and very foolishly decided to move in together right away. Both of us being severe alcoholics with a long history of drug abuse and ...

Is this abuse?

So I want to give some insight on how my relationship with my husband has been, I would love to hear opinions please.

I started dating him when I was 15 and not long after he would do things like skipping school to go hang out with other girls and even disappeared for a whole day and his mother and I search for him to find out he was with an exgirlfriend. A couple years ...

Coercive Control

From my understanding Coercive control is all those little things they did which individually amount to nothing but put all together you have some abuse. I also understand that it's very hard to prove and get a conviction for. I also learned that in court your journals can be submitted as evidence. So I'm thinking of adding charges to my ex's file. He's already being charged with sexual assault. It's all a very complicated matter.

Embarrassment or Overreacting?

So I am married to a guy who has been abusive in the past. After a close call with child protective services when a therapist I was seeing decided to make a report, he has made what appears to be an effort, or at least a decision to refrain from physical violence and overt name calling for the past year. I have also seen an improvement in his overt dishonesty and inconsiderate behaviors that ...

BPD sibling making life impossible

So my brother is going out regardless of the lockdown (he likes to challenge authorities) and a couple days ago he got into a physical fight with the police. Now he will have to go in court, and he's all hyped and excited .

He LOVES to challenge authority and laughs at everybody who follows the rule (I.E. the "sheeps" who stay at home during the Lockdown).

When he's around I find his negative energy ...
