Dear Truthspeak

Your so right it is difficult to process everything that hapened, worst of all is the helplessness you feel there is no where to turn. It’s so wonderful to have found this website and be able to comment the wonderful support like yourself and others that have been in the same situation .
Thoughts and hugs are with you too truthspeak and to Donna who started this wonderful informative website

Amen. I firmly believe in karma.I may have been duped but my ex, spath boy, is a vacuous soul, classic parasite, evil piece of detritus.
