Eliminate the Crazy in your life!
Way too easygoing fellow here, married to crazy for 13 years. The signs were always there. I tried to get away before marriage, but failed. Wish Dr Tara Palmatier was accessible in the early 00’s !! Once my wife started to throw around the D-bomb ( divorce ) as a means of threatening me to shut-the-hell-up about my needs and “be thankful I only have to support ONE and not TWO households” ( thank you family court system ! ) I sought help through google. Friends and family often described her as “entitled” so my searches began as “entitled wife” – Dr T was an absolute life-saver. I watched ( actually listened to them on headphones via cell phone each evening ), over-and-over again, the videos she made with Paul Elam. Likewise her website/blog was amazingly helpful and wonderful reading. Like many, I thought : “how the hell is Dr T not writing specifically about my life ?” Misery does love company I guess. Well great advice abounded from the videos and the websites. As I have two simply wonderful children whom I would like to have as much as they can ( financially ) I have decided it is “cheaper to keep her”. Youngest is 9 years old, which leaves me with a decade of needing help surviving.
Much thanks for having this forum !!
Hello, twtwb, and welcome to the forum! You are among people who understand. Divorce is never fun or easy, but it’s a special kind of Hell when you divorce a disordered person.
Welcome!!!! I look forward to hearing more about you!
