Thanks, CJ! That’s so wonderful your husband has been able to get some help and some peace. I sincerely hope it’s made your marriage better as well. I wish I could afford therapy, but I’m freelancing now because I’ve just decided I don’t think I can hack working in an office anymore. Dealing with everyone’s personalities can be really exhausting for me, and I don’t mean that in a primadonna way. I sincerely wish I wasn’t like this. I do think I’m at a point I can start to put some of this behind me, but I certainly do have more work to do. Again, so glad to hear your husband has found some healing! I think millions of Americans suffer from childhood abuse and don’t even realize it.
