Physical & Emotional Abuse Support Group

Abuse is a general term for the treatment of someone that causes some kind of harm (to the abused person, to the abusers themselves, or to someone else) that is unlawful or wrongful. No one deserves abuse, period. Abuse can be emotional, physical, or sexual.

    I know this isn't healthy...

     I've been in a relationship for 2 1/2 years. We started out great. There was nothing he wouldn't do for me. After about a year things changed. Our relationship went more to an ownership.He started checking my phone log, text messages, social media, checking to see where I am 24/7 and basically moved in even though it was something we never even discussed. And I swear he has gps on me some kind...

    Is it emotional abuse?

    Hello I would appreciate some opinions to know if I am in an emotionally abusive relationship. I have been married just over four years. We have two children together and two I had prior to meeting him. Throughout most of our time together I have felt unwanted, unloved, unattractive and like I am the worst person. Now I'll be honest I have struggled with extremely low self esteem my whole life,...

I posted in an emotional abuse group, but I dont think anyone looks there...I hope you don't mind me posting this again, but I'm really looking for some support/advice and I'm not even sure if I belong here.

    When is it considered verbal...

    I grew up with a mom who was verbally abusive (I was always too chunky). And after MANY MANY years, I forgave her and moved on. She tries it with my kids and I shut that shit down. NO WAY. NEVER. I've been with my partner 10 years...and I guess I've just gotten used to how she talks. As I grow older, it's becoming bothersome. Telling me to "not be so stupid" (but she reiterates she didnt CALL me...

    Best guy except when angry

    My husband and I have been married almost 10 years, with a 4 year old and another baby on the way. He's funny, sweet, supports me, helps around the house, great guy. But little things trigger fights that get nasty...long story short we battled secondary infertility and took 2 years and IVF to get pregnant again. My husband will be the first to tell you he handled it poorly. Turned to drinking,...

    "Fixing" Them

    This is something that's been roiling in my mind lately. This happened more than a month ago. I can't remember what they were fighting over. It must have been over my mom's habitual criticisms and insults towards my dad. He exploded and they got into a huge fight over what amounted to nothing at all. My mom would admit no wrong because my dad was being violent; she refused to speak to him,...
