    to the first caller, are you serious still going through this foolishness with your husband who’s living with his girlfriend and still going back and forth with you–you must know that God does not want this for you so why do you want this for yourself, what in the world does your husband have like that that his got such a hold on you, really. Honey, get on with our life, your husband has made up his mind, he’s doing his thing and loving every minute of it, obviously. Sorry to be so blunt but come on, let this thing go, I too will pray for you and pray that you get on with your life. Show just how much faith you really do have in God and do not let your husband control you. 5 years is enough–too much. Blessings.

    oh my goodness, not Sybil again. You’ve got to be kidding me. If the show does not advise her to seek permanent counseling today I am going to scream. She’s called so many times she’s run out of names. At this point she really does need a permanent and consistent therapist, for life. I’m just saying.

      Ann, I thought I recognized the voice of caller #2. I agree, she needs serious counseling. Something definitely wrong…all these phone calls with different names and ever changing stories.

    Caller #2, Caroline, has been calling frequently for years now. I thank God for Milan’s heart, he and Jill have told her many times to seek professional counselling. She called in a about a month ago, after calling a few days before, and they couldn’t contain their laughter. I am now laughing, also. Not at her pain, but the “sensational” situations that she finds herself in. (Of which, are now daily.) I feel like she is calling 911 daily, when there are others with emergencies that need tending to. Wow! To need that much attention, (hearing your voice on the radio and/or sympathy from the hosts) makes me pity her. (Then again, maybe that’s what she wants.)
