    I feel your pain and have been there. You mentioned Atlanta, I also live in Atlanta. I would like to offer myself as a resource to you if you’re interested I’ve shared my email. At one point I actually ran a support group here locally. Be strong, I’m praying for you.

    Praying for you Dawn. However, you must confront evil and not tolerate it. You are not alone! Jesus is with you. Please think about your daughters….

    Dawn, after 27 years, not sure what makes you think your husband is going to stop now, he’s been having your life and his and has been enjoying his foul life-style. He has no respect for you and that’s because you’ve allowed this to happen. We must be accountable for our actions and the outcome of our decisions. Please get the help you need for yourself, it’s not too late, it’s better to be alone and happy then to be alone and burning in misery as you are now doing. I will pray for you that you take action immediately and get your life back, God means for you to be happy not sad and hurting.
