I certainly hope not, but if you suspect you are being abused there do exist a variety if resources. talk to an adult you trust first though, sometimes a friend's parent can give you some insight or perspective.
If you think something someone is doing try to get a second opinion. Make sure it’s not just you that thinks it’s abuse before you try to act upon it, but get as much support as you can even before it’s been confirmed as abuse.
In my experience, if you even have to ask yourself that, then she probably is. I would advise talking to someone you trust and explain the situation. If she is abusive, then let someone help you handle it. Sometimes doing the first thing you want makes it only worse.
