Verbally insult, demean or threaten you?

Insist on knowing where you are every minute of the day?

Organize your schedule to follow or harass you?

Limit your mobility or access to money?

Explode in a rage and assault you physically or sexually?

Negate your words, abilities, ideas and actions?

Choke, punch, push, slap, kick or otherwise hurt you?
