Thank you for the new list!!! (Working It Out Listbot Support) My husband
and I are active on this list and have found it to be a great tool for
We are spending a lot of time
discussing the abuse as a result. He and I are seeing our relationship in
other peoples posts and gaining new insights. This is such a wonderful way
to get couples talking about the abuse and actively pursuing answers
instead of sinking into denial.
It is so exciting for me to see my husband
eagerly log on after work to read others' posts!! I have never seen him so
interested in recovery information!!
Thank you so much for this site and
the hope that you have given through providing information vital to
recovery. I can't imagine any other format that would get my husband to
spend time reading about this stuff - he doesn't generally like to read
about abuse. Who does!
We have a lot of work to do, but I am feeling like this is a
great place to start. My husband has even started journaling about his
painful childhood. I have known this man for 7 years and this blows me
away!! Thank you so much. "Monica"
Dear Monica and
Yippeee! I'm always
glad to hear good news about couples working out their abuse issues. Yes,
it is do-able when the angry person really, really wants to make his or
her life better!
My very best
regards to you both, Dr. Irene
