omg. So I am seeing a therapist and she is helping me see that i was verbally abused during my marriage. I have been divorced for years now. I never thought verbal abuse was a big deal, but i was reading a book about it, and had this weird physical reaction, shaking and feeling like i needed to vomit it all out of me - that my therapist said was PTSD. She says my son, who is in a Residential Treatment Center (RTC), is likely aligned with my ex, and that is why he "hates" me and was violent and threatening to me. My ex is famous for telling everyone how i done him wrong, because I got a settlement and child support. After the divorce, my ex really went downhill. My ex blames me entirely. I have no regrets about leaving him and never did. But it must have been painful for my son to witness. I know deep down she is right. I told my son's therapist. Can this get better? Can my son recover from a dad who all his life has been trashing his mother?
