I read someones post on here about whether grabbing someone's wrists and twisting their arms behind their backs was abuse or not. Or name calling and hitting walls and things. Or holding someone down and saying they are just doing it cause they want to talk. My ex used to do all those things but I never thought of it as abuse, just him being mad or having a bad temper and overreacting. I still think deep down that it wasn't abuse, I mean he never hit me really. And it wasn't all the time only when he was really mad. I used to get mad at him too, I would yell and tell him he was a jerk. I even pushed him sometimes but then I think he's a lot bigger and stronger than I am and just because I pushed him does that give him the right to hurt me? We are separated now, he lives in TN and I live in FL. But we still talk on the phone and he wants to see me again. I talked to him today about just being friends, he says he will but I don't know if he means it. I guess I am just wondering if I'm overreacting. I go back and forth thinking he was abusive emotionally for sure because of the things he would say to me and call me horrible names, then say he didn't mean it and he loves me so much. The wrist grabbing and holding me down didn't happen that often and when it did he would say he was playing or he would say he didn't think he was hurting me so much. Can anyone tell me if this sounds normal or not?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
