I guess the question to you is - do you think you are being abused? Regardless of what anyone says? No one can decide for another what is abusive or not. No matter who tells you its OK that person "xyz" does what for whatever reason. You decide what's abuse. You decide what's OK for someone to say or do to you.
Battered women are caught in a cycle of being told they deserve it or a ton of other things as to why it's OK. The cycle does not stop until the woman leaves the batterer. The victimizer usually doesn't change - it's just a heartbreaking cycle with alot of debris.
I am sorry this is all going on for you. & I'm sorry things went awry with the therapy termination. I hope things turn around for you soon.
