Abused? You don't know the meaning of the word?

Does anyone find that the word "Abused" or "Abuse" has become misused like "Eccentric" or "Genius"? Say if someone called me a Tosser, I wouldn't say they had abused me, I would say that they are ill-mannered. Yet that is often classed as "Abuse". No, abuse for me is being raped, sexual abuse, being repeatedly physically or mentally bullied. I just feel many people are getting too soft. I heard last week of a woman getting counselling because she got a parking ticket! No, the perjorative term of "Abuse" is an insult to someone who has been genuinely abused.
