    I Got Out But He Still Makes Me Miserable

    I got out of my marriage after only 4 years. I could see where it was going, the signs of abuse, the way he talks to our daughter, and wanted to end it before it got bad. He still makes me feel like **** for ending it and loves to tell me how ****** up I am (because I'm in love...

    She's Living Up Her Role

    Just because you're the step mom, doesn't mean you have to act the part. - I lived out of state for 3 years. During that time, I got married, graduated from school, and had a baby. Not once in all that time did my family even consider coming out to see us. No one sent us a we...

    And Now I'm Old

    I am 58. I've been in a marriage to an emotionally abusive man for almost 29 years. It started out OK, though there were plenty of signs if I hadn't been so stupid. I was 29 and in graduate school. All the men I was meeting were unemployed losers. I wanted to meet someone, get...

    I Just Want Peace And Happiness

    I had a dream last night.  It was more like a flashback because this happened when my daughter was about 3 months old.  It was a sad dream.  Now I'm angry because I'm remembering, not only this but other things too.  It's making me think how foolish I've been...

    It makes it more primal. It also adds to the thriller since someone could come by and see. Maybe even have them join in.
