That being said, and I am in no way defending her so don't get me wrong... if I were in her shoes I would feel a bit sad that you didn't buy the boyfriend a present, especially if he got you one - maybe she felt that you didn't approve of him and that hurt her. Maybe she has no idea that he was treating you that badly? Please don't think I agree with what she did or with the boyfriend, I don't... it's just sad when family members don't get along - I know, my brother and I aren't very close and I wish we were closer.
Obviously I don't know half the situation, nor how it feels to be you and suffering from PTSD... but, like I got told a few weeks ago, there are always two sides to every story.
I am proud of you for sticking up for yourself though, I don't do that enough so way to go you!
Thanks for looking at my situation from every angle, it helped.
