Response to LiberalEsto (Reply #17)

18. I'm glad you're feeling better.

I want to recommend to you and anyone who reads this a book that I read many years ago. It's called:

The Verbally Abusive Relationship: How to recognize it and how to respond
by Patricia Evans

"In this fully expanded and updated third edition of the bestselling classic, you learn why verbal abuse is more widespread than ever, and how you can deal with it. You'll get more of the answers you need to recognize abuse when it happens, respond to abusers safely and appropriately, and most important, lead a happier, healthier life.

"In two all-new chapters, Evans reveals the Outside Stresses driving the rise in verbal abuse--and shows you how you can mitigate the devastating effects on your relationships. She also outlines the Levels of Abuse that characterize this kind of behavior--from subtle, insidious put-downs that can erode your self-esteem to full-out tantrums of name-calling, screaming, and threatening that can escalate into physical abuse."


It helped me quite a bit. I loaned it to a friend who did not recognize that her husband was being abusive. She thanked me and promptly divorced her abusive husband. She is now in a wonderful committed relationship. I'd send you my copy, but I sent it to my daughter to keep, just in case.

Please know that we care and are here for you.
