How can you make a family member realize that to truly understand abuse you must look at the abuser's thinking and attitudes during the calmer periods not just at what he does during one of his rages?
tell whom ever to pay close attention to the abusers mannerisms(intense eye contact), specific body language(posturing), and voice modulation(change in tone), because these are indicators that the abuser is manipulating who ever is in the same room with him/her, to gain control. It is all about control for abusers, because they aren't in control of themselves. Abusers think that they are in control of themselves when they control others. They have deep rooted fears of abandonment, yet they do things that make people run for the hills. My mother is a sociopath with narcissism, I have had to excommunicate her because she refuses to admit fault for being mentally abuse and refuses to apologize for anything. Try to get your family member to google these words borderline,bipolor,depression,sociopath,psychopath,antisocial,schizoid,avoidant,and add personality disorder to each word. The best way to deal is pack your bags and move to higher ground. Good luck !!!
There are many kinds and types of abusers. It is impossible to define a single pathogenesis (origin and development of the pathological conduct). Culture and society also play a role. Abuse cuts across social-economic strata, geography, ethnic lines, and periods in history. It is associated with certain mental health disorders but this is not a prerequisite - abusers can be psychologically healthy, in the clinical sense.
I think what you're referring to is the birth control pill. Doctors sometimes prescribe the birth control pill to women who have irregular periods in order to help get their periods regular. There is no specific pill out there strictly for periods, unless you are thinking of Midol which is used to combat PMS symptoms like cramps.
Not all girls get mad during their periods, in fact many of us women are really happy during our periods! A lot of it depends on how you feel about menstruation, because there are a lot of negative attitudes towards menstruation...such as that it's embarrassing...it means lots of girls feel less than enthused about it, so of course if they think their periods are a bad thing they're not going to be very happy during…

Most girls will have their periods for 3-7 days approximately once a month. However, girls may experience PMS before they get their periods, and this may confuse some people into thinking they have their periods for several weeks. As well, some girls period's may fluctuate wildly for a variety of reasons. Generally anyone this happens to should talk to their doctor about it.
Should you tell your older brother that you started your period if he's closer to your mom than you are?
not much probably, but everyone is different; some women have very heavy periods that are very painful and can last a week, others may only have periods that last 2-3 days and are not very painful at all. as you have more you will understand how yours will be. if you go on to suffer very heavy and painful periods one option is to go on the pill.
Is it normal to have ongoing heavy painful periods while on pill for first 3 months- i am thinking of quitting the pill?
Not all guys are squeamish about menstruation, at least not mature men - boys maybe. Those who are squeamish about menstruation often take the lead from women or learn it from cultural norms, there are many negative attitudes about menstruation being shameful, embarrassing, gross, dirty, smelly, etc. so with all these sort of attitudes wouldn't you be squeamish about it too? Essentially mens attitudes towards menstruation come from the same place as women's attitudes towards…
As one Nobel prize said, "The problem with evolution is that everyone thinks they understand it." Probably the main reason that evolution is difficult to understand is that it requires the acceptance of "deep time" - extremely long periods of time. Another thing that is difficult to grasp is that evolution isn't about "survival of species"; most evolutionary biologists consider the survival of genes and the driving force of evolution.
