Do you find yourself alternating between loving/missing the abuser and hating them for the things they’ve done to you?

Yes, at least sometimes.

No, never.

Do you ever feel like, even though they abused you in some ways, you sort of owe your abusers something? (Example: they paid for you to go to school, or they gave you a place to live, or they did something else that in some way helped you out)

Yes, at least some of the time.

No, never.

Do you worry about the abuser and what they will do without you? Do you feel like they NEED you and feel guilty about the idea of staying away?

No, never.

Do you or did you secretly think you could help your abuser get better or improve somehow? Are you ever mad at yourself for not succeeding?

No, never.

Do you or did you find yourself making excuses for or covering up for your abuser’s bad behavior?

Do you or did you allow the abuse to continue in order to keep the peace with this person?

Yes, at least some of the time.
