I Don’t Know if My Mother Is Abusive or if It’s Just Me

Most of these things are to manipulate me...

Irritability, Anger, Occasional Depression, Sudden Onset

I’d be yelling, cursing, and pretty much just feeling pissed off...

She’s also received sexually explicit pictures and videos from at least one of the men. I’ve tried to communicate with my wife explaining...
