Jo Ann…I wanted to say thank you for your page and let you know I have found the website very kind and informative.
I would like to share my story as, even if you don’t read it, I may find it somewhat cathartic writing it out. I grew up going to meetings with them and took part in Alateen for several years.
We no longer have a computer of our own because I smashed it on the concrete patio one fine evening, but before that he frequented chat rooms there as well. On the good days I can love myself and realize that this addiction has nothing to do with me, the way I look, the amount of sexual acts between us, or an unhappiness with our marriage.
On my bad days it is just the opposite–I feel really badly about my overweight figure (although my husband has never told me has has any amount of dislike for my body.
He took the phone back and asked me if I wanted my crutches so I could get out of there-haha.
