My son, 40, is, I've come to the conclusion, a verbal bully. He's married with a wife and family and he not only treats his wife with utter contempt, I'm suffering with his unkind and hurtful words as well.
Nothing I say is right and he constantly puts me down and tries to pick a fight. He twists every verbal situation to suit him and if I dare complain or stand up to him I'm told to "stop playing the victim card" etc.
Since the latest spat when I defended myself I've not heard a word. I live alone (a widow) and he lives ten minutes away. No offers of help re Corona self isolation etc, nothing at all. The previous time he tried this with me I didn't see or hear from him for almost a year, nor saw the grandchildren either.
I'm tired of making excuses (to myself) for his awful behaviour and I have to face up to what is happening. Any advice would be great. Thank you.
