Gong through a chaotic personal transformation, ending up in an abusive and disempowering excuse for a support system, getting chemically impaired or worse is a hell of a time to discover that the people you're with are more capable of cruelty, vindictive, and/or greedy behavior than empathic intelligence and understanding and coming up with proactive solutions which work for everyone involved.

Subcategory: Nonadjustment to Label Focused Domestic/Familial Abuse Disorder with features of misdiagnosed/undiagnosed, medically unsupported medical illness or disability.
