Palmtree: Good for you! Verbal and emotional abuse is considered a form of Domestic Violence.

There are many groups in the Capital District to give support for women such as yourself. I wish I had names of some to share with you. I believe the YWCA has information about some.

If you can connect with one they will be there for you and help you better understand and deal with this horrible situation. My prayers will be with you this year that you will connect with this support network and get out of the situation you are in.
