    Healing

    After dealing with the cheating that my husband has done to me, many friends have advised me to seek help/therapy. Even though I have finally come to realize it really is an issue/addiction of his-that he can't stop doing this to us...I may need to seek outside sources to heal...

    Oh Hell Yea!!!!!!!

    I am seeking an everlasting identity, just like most naive teenagers..bleh.. I am trying to deal with what seems  to be an eating disorder. I am attempting to deal with my extreme insecurities and self doubt. And EP is my way of venting, my way of coping.

    It Wasn't My Original Intention

    I have been told over and over that I should write a book....that I have a way with words. I have never done this, nor would I know where to start. I have been a mother for 36 of my 54 years of life on this planet. Do the math, that leaves just a meager 18 years for me to have...

    But Will It Help?

    I'm not sure yet. It has already helped me a bit, but at this point I'm not sure if it's part of the solution or part of the problem. EP is like being at a group therapy session where the therapist has left the room. Will the clients be able to work it out on their own? Can we...
