  • All of the above- it is all abuse along with controlling where, when and who you go out of the house with. Took me a while to see that just because my ex did stuff like that and didn't punch or slap me I was still in an abusive relationship. Even though I don't know you I am glad to hear you are getting counseling and know you should leave.
