Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied.
This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical.
If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.
If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.
No one should live in fear of the person they love.
Such conduct is typically directed against a particular individual or individuals.
It includes, but is not limited to, situations in which one person has authority over another.
Your partner apologizes and says the hurtful behavior won't happen again — but you fear it will.
At times you wonder whether you're imagining the abuse, yet the emotional or physical pain you feel is real.
