Wendy S. Weber is a writer and Bioinformatics major. She is especially interested in genetics and the role they play in mental health. While a lot is still unknown about psychopaths , Wendy has 40 years of experience with them. Both of her parents were psychopaths. Wendy, along with her siblings, endured physical, sexual, mental, and emotional abuse. She understands their manipulative tactics all too well. Psychopaths are very convincing and deceptive, which is why Wendy and her 4 siblings' severe abuse went completely undetected. Wendy is now using her past to help others and bring more awareness to the devastation psychopaths cause. She recently launched a blog "Raised by Psychopaths" in an effort to shed light on this personality disorder. Wendy has been married for 13 years to Eric, who continues to help and support her through the ongoing recovery process. Wendy and Eric live with their 2 dogs.

From Moon to Earth — recognizing that my experience was actually abuse

From Moon to Earth — recognizing that my experience was actually abuse

Editor’s note: Please welcome a new contributor to Lovefraud.com — Eleanor Cowan, author of “A History of a Pedophile’s Wife.” 

Eleanor Cowan

Born in 1948, the same year women first voted in Quebec, she began her life odyssey with a lovely home, good food, some affection, and soon, the company of nine siblings. These are the details she relied upon, not the nights of sexual abuse, the constant criticism of her mother, nor the religious oppression in her strict family. With the alcoholism of her mother and the chronic absence of her Dad, life slid downhill fast. She became a devout Catholic, an anxious people pleaser  — and a complete stranger to herself. Three drug-rapes into her 20’s, she decided to erase the past, turn a brand new page, get married and have a family – and promptly married a pedophile who molested their children. After writing her book, Eleanor gladly visits groups, presents her story and answers questions about her entry into a mature adult world where tears and laughter can co-exist.

Sex offender gets out of jail and rapes a 7-year-old girl, police say

Sex offender gets out of jail and rapes a 7-year-old girl, police say

Corbin James Breitenbach (Wichita Police Dept.)

Corbin James Breitenbach, 23, of Wichita, Kansas, had already done four years in prison for choking and raping a 22-year-old woman. He was released on April 28 — and six weeks later, he was arrested for breaking into a second-floor apartment bedroom, taking a 7-year-old girl out on to the balcony, and raping her.

A family member said that when Breitenbach was 17, “something changed him. He snapped.”

Psychopathy often kicks in at adolescence, and it sounds like that’s what happened.

Chauncy Wilkerson (Baton Rouge Police Department)

Catfishing can be dangerous. Chauncy Wilkerson, 19, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, met a woman on the dating app TAGGED — except that it was really a man posing as a woman.

Wilkerson told the man not to come to his home. The guy showed up anyway, pulled into the driveway, drove towards Wilkerson and his mother, striking both of them. Wilkerson then fired four shots at the vehicle as it fled.

Wilkerson was arrested. No word on any consequences for the catfisher.

If we want something different, we need to do something different

If we want something different, we need to do something different

Amber Ault

By Amber Ault, Ph.D., MSW

I’m fond of this axiom: “If you want something different from what you’ve had, you need to do something different from what you’ve done.”

Here’s an important corollary: Doing something different will, at first, feel strange.

When we envision something different for ourselves and begin to practice creating it, it’s important to prepare to receive it. Otherwise, new possibilities will be assimilated by the powerful machinery of old patterns and we’ll continue to feel stuck. It’s not enough to want something different, or even to envision it. In order to create something different, we must release the barriers — often unconscious — that stand in its way. We need to lay in new skills, including tolerating the discomforts of receiving the goodness we desire.

Sociopaths and double lives

Sociopaths and double lives

Man with maskA reporter inquired about people who live double lives. Why do they do it? Can they maintain double lives for a long time? What are the dangers?

Like most of us at Lovefraud, I have some experience with this. My ex-husband, James Montgomery, cheated with at least six different women during our 2.5-year marriage. He had a child with one of the women. Ten days after I left him, he married the mother of the child, which was the second time he committed bigamy. And of course, he took a quarter-million dollars from me—spending much of the money entertaining these other women.

Raw power and control — the core of what sociopaths want

Raw power and control — the core of what sociopaths want

Editor’s note: Lovefraud received the following letter from a reader whom we’ll call “Maisie.”

Here is my story. I would be grateful for any thoughts as I’m still trying to make sense of something I went through.

I was in the very best relationship for 25 years and then he died.

Afterwards I was utterly heartbroken and alone as a result I think of being still quite young in my circle of friends and them not being able to cope with the tragedy.

In the village where I lived a newcomer stopped me whilst I was walking to introduce himself. He would stop from time to time to talk to me.
