    That's what I was going to say. The fellow she moved in with has changed her way of thinking and behaving.
    Often the changed person doesn't realize it and really doesn't want to realize it. Until she does... there may not be very much you could say without being very very blunt.
    You have to decide if she is/was a good enough friend to give her the tough love it sounds like she may need.

    We all had had that thought cross our minds but we don't think, in this case, that it's his doing. I'll digress. When she was married her husband was abusive and controlling which means she had no say whatsoever. Yes, we saw the bruises. He died, she lived alone for 5 years and her friends invited her along to numerous social functions. Now that she's with this fellow she's beginning to feel she has power and is using and abusing it. The phone continues to ring and I'm too busy to answer it.
