    Confusion

    It all started as something not so serious, just one of those relationships you're in just to be in. But over the two years I've grown to love him. By the time I realized he was an alcoholic it was too late, I was already in too deep to leave. Things got really bad, most of the...

    Done

    It took 3 years for me to leave. I enabled, I mothered, I punished, I coddled. Not once did I try to get him professional help. I've thought that maybe I should have tried harder. Now I realize that it would not have mattered what I did. I was not a trained professional. I...

    We have only known each other

    for 3 months. I never believed in love at first sight until I met this man. Things were amazing for the first month. He painted this great picture of himself, but it was a facade. He lied about everything. We lived in different states so it was easy for him to hide it from me...
