As ironic as it may seem, I'm reading your site
sitting with my ex-wife. While we were married, I abused booze as well as
my ex; hence the term "ex." Seems it took a divorce, and me
getting help, for us to become friends again.
While I can identify with 99% of what I've read
on your website, I haven't found anything that refers to the fact that
with CONSTANT AWARENESS, open communications, and counseling, an abusive
partner can adjust their actions prior to falling back into "old

Keep up the outstanding work. I can't think
of a better medium for women to gain access to the information you

Again, thank you.
All I can say is "huh"? If you look at the articles on the
abuser pages, I constantly refer to self-awareness
and self-control - the exact ingredients for the difficult changes that
need to be made - and CAN BE made! In case you haven't noticed, this
site is very big on helping & supporting the abuser! About half of my
practice is about treating abuser guys - and gals! So get off the victim
pages & find the abuser stuff!
I am here for YOU
too! (Even got an abuser support email list,
By the way, I'm glad you and your ex are friends. Keep up the good work!
