Sorry to hear that you are going through a rough time. I understand letting down emotional barriers and feeling the fear of vulnerability. Do you know that abusers engage in role reversal in which they manipulate their children to care for them and also have unreasonably high developmental expectations?
I moved to Baltimore and have started a new group. I hope you will consider joining. I have scheduled a meetup for Sat. Oct. 5 in Columbia. See Meetup: Silent No More Baltimore
Hi, Dave. Thanks for the message. My mother-in-law was in town over the weekend. And her husband cheated on her repeatedly throughout their marriage. I was struck during the last meeting with how many people reported that their parents or in-laws had affairs. Is it really that prevalent? How sad.
Thanks for your message, Dave. Your situation sounds very similar to mine. I found out on my own the day after in the end of January and just can't get past it. I'm looking to meeting the group!
Thanks for your message. It's very difficult surviving what we have subjected to in our lives. I raise my glass to being an adult and having the opportunities to sort out the tangled mess that was and look forward a future of peace and happiness. Some days can be extremely dark, but you just have to keep swimming!
:-) keep smiling, Jessica
