After a close call with child protective services when a therapist I was seeing decided to make a report, he has made what appears to be an effort, or at least a decision to refrain from physical violence and overt name calling for the past year. I have also seen an improvement in his overt dishonesty and inconsiderate behaviors that ...

BPD sibling making life impossible

So my brother is going out regardless of the lockdown (he likes to challenge authorities) and a couple days ago he got into a physical fight with the police. Now he will have to go in court, and he's all hyped and excited .

I was married for 38 years to a very damaged, but successful woman who constantly quipped that males were inferior or some such trash. I did ...

Epilepsy and Spousal Abuse

I’m epileptic and my spouse has been my sole transportation for the past year. He married me 12 yrs ago knowing there could be bad times.

After being comatose for a day, in the hospital for a week and enduring a ...
