New with a question.

Coulterville, CA.
My name is Richard and my wife and I both come from completely dysfunctional families.
Wife's family was extremely abusive both physically and mentally, she has a brother and much younger sister. Her brother was very abusive to her when they were kids.
I'm an only child, my dad was an alcoholic, but never abusive physically. My mother was a hypochondriac that was always sick and about to die, but doctors could never find anything wrong with her. Basically I raised myself and they seemed totally detached from me.

My question is this, what is the worse, physical abuse, or neglect, or do they create different issues with different people?
