If you read my types of emotional abuse page, you'll see for yourself that you are being abused. The fact that you're considered an adult at nineteen years old (although I don't know where you live) means that what your adoptive mother is doing does not fit it into the child abuse category any longer. It doesn't make it right, but it changes the "label". Talk to your father. See what you can arrange with him. In terms of what she continues to do to you, you do have legal rights that you can investigate with regard to the right to privacy. But the fact that you are living in her house gives her rights too. You said you don't make much money and that you're in college, which I gather is why you still live there. As an adult, you now have some choices to make. Stay where you are and continue to be abused, or possibly move out into other living arrangements. Like I said, speak with your father. Perhaps he can help you further. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, Olivia, and that starts with YOU. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The sooner, the better...Darlene is right!

Olivia, your so-called adoptive mom is wrong. You are not fat; you are not ugly; you are beautiful. You are not a b****; you are a good person. You are not unlikeable; you are not unlovable; you are lovable, so never believe any of those lies that she was spewing. Something's seriously wrong with her. If you can't talk to your dad, then try telling someone you really trust. If she didn't want to be there, then she should've had the courage to give you up for adoption instead of abusing and berating you. The path that she chose is inexcusable. Oh, and most people who treat others the way you were treated often do it out of jealousy because they could never be such a shining star that you are. Oh, and now that you're an adult, you have the right to as much privacy as you want...and I'm just as disgusted by the fact that she is not respecting your privacy. Oh, and it's equally wrong for her to do things such as trying to break up the relationship between you and your boyfriend, trying to stop you from having friends, reading your emails, trying to control which social network you go to, etc. You know why she did it? Well, that's because she's jealous. She didn't want you to be happy; she didn't want you to have the perfect boyfriend she never had; she didn't want you to have the equally perfect friends she never had; like I said, she didn't want you to be happy; she wants you to be miserable just like her, but don't let her do that. Don't worry about what she has to say to you anymore; just be happy and keep living your own life if you can because haters are not worth the time. You are not to blame for her ignorant behavior; she is to blame because she chose to abuse you. You were the child; she was the adult; she had all the power and only misused it over you, so the sooner you tell, the better. Again, if your dad won't step in, tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.
