Looking for Book Recommendations
I noticed when I google "I am being emotionally abused my my adult stepdaughter," there are no books.
This abuse is surprising very common and I can't find any books to read about it.
On a post note, I am doing quite well. I took everyone's advice in here and removed myself from her drama. It was a bit easier for me because she is in her mid twenties and lives states away.
But, I would like literature to read to further educate myself in this topic.
This will help many of you who are also experiencing years of emotional abuse by your adult SKs.
Mine is diagnosed Bipolar and has other behavioral, emotional and personality disorders. She uses that to get away with how she treats me.
My DH has been as supportive of me as he possibly can. I sincerely believe that. She has threatened suicide so many times, he has to tiptoe around her.
Putting myself in his shoes, I actually understand.
He reassures me that he supports me and apologizes to me for her behavior. He has told me multiple times that she simply cannot communicate like a normal human being. That she is seriously mentally ill and since she is an adult, there's little he can do.
She is actually a danger to herself and others but when she thinks she is getting her way, she backs off a while and submarines.
I was hoping to find books to read that will help me keep on keeping on because I know future abuse is always right around the corner.
Should I study the illnesses more? I am hoping there are books available that are specific to stepparents being emotionally abused.
