    When an abuser dies

    Have you had an abuser die? My ex husband who was abusive to me and abused my oldest daughter died unexpectedly a few weeks before Christmas. My daughter hadn't seen him in 10 years. My other children saw him once about 2 years ago. My son texted him once in a while. The emotions that we are...

    I got out!

    I really should not try to read and respond to posts when I have a really bad migraine! I see that comment was not towards me now. I had a good nap this afternoon.
