I have been sliding all over the place on this thick patch of drama and, unfortunately, melodrama. I am beginning to think that there might be some more serious issues underneath, but I don't have a support system in place where I live in which to discuss it openly.

I'm in a new relationship with someone who is in a relationship with two others. I think that one of the other partners may be verbally and emotionally abusive, and has, for the last month been using my partner as a vehicle to bully me into isolation. I'm quite sure of it in fact. I have made steps in the last few days to remove myself from the line of fire, and to disengage from any involvement with that person. This is not the easiest thing to do when we share a partner. I would like to have some insight into the issue, but I can't talk about it publicly. Does anyone have experience with this? Does polyamory make it possible to be in a "second hand" abusive relationship?
