I move forward in my life with the knowledge i’ve gained.
Whether of NOT YOU believe someone is a Sociopath or toxic, or disordered or whacky makes no difference to me. IF I can identify a ‘disordered’ person around me, sniff out wierdness or odd behaviors….that is GOOD enough for me to distance.
I think the use of the identifying words are important to use in society…….but we must be careful NOT to overuse or diagnose someone if we are not qualified or have seen the behaviors first hand.

When I heard about this case, It raised my neck hairs……I thought he showed traits……and if I had any reason to be around this person, he’d be a prime candidate for me to look further into ‘who’ he was….. and distance……i’m not qualified to diagnose…..but for personal reasons…..i’d run…..but not keep my mouth shut!

He seems classic. It was also sad how he sucked mamma in when she lost her baby brittney. She was duped aswell at a vulnerable time.
Now his family is picking up where he left off…….leaving mamma in the dust.

We must find a balance……when using the ‘word’ Sociopath. IT can either describe behaviors……or diagnose a person.
Let’s remember our place.


I read this twice.
What I read is that he wasn’t a great influence on her. In fact far from it.

But it is clear that they both used prescription drugs.

The choice between right and wrong and good and bad is open to us all. I look at all of the courageous people here who have said “No More” and I see a tragedy here.

And most of what I see is a tragedy of judgment. Because she never did say no.

It is a reminder to all about proceeding before the Grace of God that whatever our troubles are, we have said NO.

The other thing that struck me is that the parents who write this now, decided to take distance because of the drama. How many of us have had the same experience? That in days before we said no, people walked away from the struggles we experienced and the “drama” that was unfolding all around us. When our heads were in washing machines…

I am reminded that I was lucky to get my head out of the spin cycle and to find support from others who understood what happened. For this I hav deep and lasting gratefulness.

To me, this story is a reminder to celebrate that. more than it is anything else.

I knew I should have just shut up …..and waited for you to leave your beautiful and clear response to the article.

You da bomb!
