Default Mental abuse confusion

Has anyone here been mentally abused by there partner? I have been in a total of 5 year relationship and have just started in the last year realizing that I was being mentally abused. I still have a hard time describing's a lot of things being said and over reactions that over time have caused me to constantly be walking on egg shells. I have a young child so this makes everything worse I have to appease her so she doesn't get angry in front of him. Sometimes I'm just like "am I being emotionally abused here?" "is this real?" "am the one over reacting?" I know for sure it has wore me down to the point I am feeling mentally exhausted. Anyone have any experience with this? With a form of abusive that is not so clear cut?

Dear jjjjjjjj57,

I am so sorry you are in that situation. Having been in a similar situation I can really identify with you. Abuse can come in all sizes and shapes and be quite subtle and elusive. But it is still abuse. Wish I knew what to say that would be helpful to you! My heart goes out to you!

Sincerely yours, Yao Wen

I don't think it matter whether you label it abuse or not. If you don't like it don't put up with it. End the relationship.
