The more we examine the effects of the damage wrought on us the angrier I get at the SOBs who started the whole mess. The damage is so extensive, it reaches every nook and cranny in the psyche. Just when I think I have dealt with all the damage another reminder of something else is discussed on this forum. We so need each other. I am so very thankful this forum exists.
My parents are both in their 80s but I wished for many years that they would at least die before the big A. I am just appalled at how the WT took away my natural affection and I did not even notice. There is no way that I could ever tell my parents how I used to feel. It would hurt them so much.
