anyone else feel like the dog whisperer? lol

It has become necessary to become the pack leader since that role was being abused by my DH

I know what you mean. I think I'm going overboard being alpha dog anymore, and DH is constantly walking on egg shells with me and kissing my tush. I'm not stopping him, either, somehow I need that stuff and it's been 4 years since his second EA now, well, not quite but close to it. In my case it isn't just his EAs that hurt, there were over 30 years of emotional and verbal abuse in our marriage prior to that, so it's taking me a long time to get my arms around it all. But I was such a little "puppy" all those years, he was like a pit bull and I was this little critter. That doesn't work, bow wow.

Yep, sure do. I packed up part of his junk and lead him to the door. So I was definitely a 'pack leader'. lol Then I kindly packed up the rest of it and set it on the deck, to be picked up at his convenience....or at his inconvenience; it really didn't matter to me. I just recommended he get it before the flash flooding started that was predicted. 6 inches of rain~who knew? :)

this board, YOU, and many others were there for me when i was at my lowest point.

i still think of you and have wondered if life is treating you as you should be treated, then i am reminded that you TRIED to teach me thru your actions that WE ARE IN CONTROL OF LIFE AND OUR LIVES not the other way around.

finding your posts here last evening made me smile, so often you made me laugh out loud when all i wanted to do was bury my head in my pillow and bawl my eyes out.

friends like you, well they last a lifetime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

too bad we can not say the same about husbands, ha ha
