Stumbled om this and I don't understand the complaint. The site has no advertising and has no fee-for-service life coaches. Anyone can verify this by just looking.

I had a session with my T this morning and he asked me to look back on my life starting from 9 months ago (when the shit hit the fan) and going back from there. I was almost stuck for words. He wanted me to see how much I have changed. I remember the cussing STBX used to subject me to, in public even! And the deceipt, the emotional abuse, the frustration I used to (allow myself to) go through.

I consider myself to be extremely lucky. Extremely. I am 9 months from the initial discovery, 9 months into getting out, 9 months into working on 'me'. I have my son and he has me. We are very happy and we enjoy life, together and as individuals.

So many others have it far, far worse and for many years.

Without any doubt, BPDFamily.com has been a major part of my recovery, my sanity, my daily dose of empathy, sympathy, understanding and soothing. If I passed any one of you in the street, I wouldn't know you from Adam. Yet I have this deep, warm feeling inside like we've been close friends for life.

And so they say 'to give is to receive'. As we have received, so we also have given.
