Hi, my name is Meg! When I was 19, I married an abusive alcoholic who was 10 years older than me and already divorced. We were married nearly 10 years and in that time, I spent countless hours/years in Al-Anon meetings, substance abuse support groups and private therapy. Finally, we divorced. I later remarried and now have three wonderful children who are growing up WAY too fast! My hobbies are hiking, gourmet cooking, horseback riding and reading trashy novels.
Hello, I'm Schefflera and I am recovering from a lifetime of emotional abuse. My parents were already planning a divorce before I was even born which set the stage for plenty of resentment in my life. Of course as a child I never quite understood why I was treated so differently than my siblings... only that somehow I was not worthy of respect like everyone else. Family always felt more like an obligation than a blessing to me. I always felt out of place, guilty, and lonely in my family; I couldn't figure out what was so "wrong" with me until I discovered the concept of Emotional Abuse. It's no wonder I fell into abusive romantic relationships later on in life! My self-esteem had already been obliterated by my own family and each day I am a step closer to repairing that damage.
Thankfully I am now married to a wonderful supportive man who is with me every step of the way on that road to recovery. In my free time I like to knit and play with my two beloved shelter mutts.
