When the Abused Become the Abuser.
July 16, 2010
This forum thread tells the story of a nice guy who ends up falling in love with a woman who survived abuse. He takes care of her and loves her like she has never been loved before. 8 months later she accuses him of mental abuse and stalking her. She drags his name through the mud and is seemingly possessed by insecurity and irrational paranoia. And any attempt by him to help is met with emotional outbursts. The man is left bewildered when the woman who loved him with a passion, suddenly shuts him out and tells him to move on. Is this a case where the abused has become the abuser?
