I will never tell my family or friends, but I opened up an open blog on Salon.com, which I absolutely admire for their great writing. I wrote 2 quick posts today. Within the last couple hours, it has become an editor's pick and is on the cover og the blog page. I'm so proud of myself. I'll never share this with people I know IRL, but here it is:http://open.salon.com/blog/tellingtosca/2011/03/11/the_things_i_dont_tell_my_co-workers. And yes, I wrote it under a pen name. I've even gotten a few positive commments already on it. I'm positively glowing and just had to share with someone. :smileyhappy:

Yes. It is true. Thank you very much. No matter where we come from, we're all prey to sociopaths. When I married my EX, I was on top of the world - I was a professional and thought I really had my sh*t together. I've always had to be on top of things. Then, he ground me into almost nothing. I lost it all. It was really hard being happy with who I am. ALOT of therapy. I know you'll get through you're situation and end up on top as well. Women are alot stronger than we give ourselves credit for sometimes. And, everything always works out in the end. I'm sure of that.
