Dewnberry and Millie,

Welcome to Love Fraud and yes, it is difficult to get away, and it only really starts when we go NO CONTACT. Just like with cocaine you can’t “taper off” you must QUIT it completely. NO CONTACT…and that is the hard part because when you set the boundary they will make every effort to break down your door. But you must stand firm.

Blogging and reading here will help. God bless.
