I am so glad that you and your mother didn’t lose each other , because she was a victim too. Her role was different of course, she had more Responsibilty , she was supposed to take care of you, but when it comes to abuse ; no one is to blame except the abuser.
I really appreciated this. I think it’s wonderful that you wrote this and shared with us.

I completely agree. We had a few issues in my teenage years, parts of me held guilt for her “allowing” us to suffer. But, that didn’t last long. The moment she left was the moment I stayed with her.

Lots there- for a later point. But essentially, I never left her side after that until I knew she could handle life again.
