It's not only teens, I'm in my mid 50's and I am in that type of situation. You are just drained of any part of life you enjoy, you become depressed, you don't care about the things you use to take so much pride in doing. It just basically sucks the life out of you. My advice to the teens, you are young, get out of this type of relationship, you have your whole life ahead of you. If you get too deep in and stay with them you just keep sinking further down..believe me I know, I love him but I love life more, for me there is NO way out now, but I would rather live on a park bench than be abused, at least I would be happy.
