Homework Help: english

This what I wrote about the word "ABuse" and its history. Please tell me if I am definding the word correctly with examples and if my sentences are structured. Your help is apprected.

To certain people the word abuse has many meanings; thus the word abuse itself was borrowed from Middle French abuser. The noun abuse entered English in about 1439 as abuse, coming also from Middle French. Abuse is to misuse, to mistreat something wrongly that the individual might damage it.

For instance drug abuse substances where the individual takes more than what their body can handle which can cause a wide range of mental health problems for the individual. Or a person that does not follow medical instructions nor according to the directions of their health care providers for the sake of satisfying their egos.

No matter what intention individual might have, misuse of anything can occur anytime. Whether it is financial misuse where people are ruining your credit, stealing your bank or credit cards. And physical misuse where the individual endures choking, grabbing and gets threaded with weapons.
