...distress? I am permanently disabled--on SSDI and it was caused by my ex-husband. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Post-traumatic Stress Disorder...it never stops because my ex-husband and some others never 'stop'--its one thing after another...for well over a decade. I am completely unable to work. Thank you for your input, in advance.
This is a good article explaining the elements in detail: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intentional_infliction_of_emotional_distress

Ms. Sargeant was very helpful.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.

Yes the Wikipedia link supplied by Ms. Sergeant was very good. Look at 4 elements required to prove you case. Remember your ex husband's conduct must be extreme and outrageous. It sounds like you should consult a personal injury lawyer. Good Luck!
