Attention to abuse thread requested by WD

Hello Friends.

I draw your attention to thread titled:

"I use to be happy, I use have goals, Now I am abused"

Please do what you feel is right there.

What is itching me about that thread right now is a question to the OP about the form of the abuse.

That got me thinking. Of course it is good practice to get a case history, to draw a person out, to find out just how deep and dark and dangerous the situation is.

But, but, but....And, and, and...

I am becoming more and more convinced that a very powerful predictor, diagnostic of "Abusive Relationship," perhaps THE most powerful diagnostic is when a person says:

"I am being abused--please help!"

I want to work with that thought form.

hey WD...I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say.

I was the one that asked how she was being abused.

and more because from her post, I don't see abuse...I see neglect maybe...but I don't see anything about abuse.

so I was asking for more details, simply to understand the problem more.

I wasn't in any way trying to deny that the abuse is there.

Perhaps I am misunderstanding the point of your post here.

also understand...when someone asks for help....help comes in many forms...and sometimes you need to find out what kind of help they are looking for/need...not just assume.
