Points to makes before anyone asks:
-I am in therapy
- I am on meds
- I am clinically diagnosed with a list of issues
- I am not fully free from my abuser

You need to move away from them. You shouldn't have to deal with that.

Why can't you get away from him?

What keeps you from making a brake from your abuser? Sense of duty, family obligation, fear?

True. But I was conditioned and brainwashed into believing that I am nothing without them.

Because I'm brainwashed. Therapy is beginning to help, but I know this will be a long, winding road.

I understand that. But you need work with therapy to reprogram your brain. You don't need them. Think about your children. Do you want them to deal with it as well?

Why does your therapist allow you to have contact with your abuser. Is it your mom?
