    I have to agree, the first caller is a prisoner and the worst kind, in her own skin. Not sure why she’s continuing to live with this person she calls her husband, something is just not right and she needs help to get away from him at least until he gets himself some help which is very obvious that he needs, however, the caller really needs to take care of herself and her children and stop living in this toxic environment. I pray she calls a shelter or seek immediate help because this is dangerous and no should have live like that. My prayers are with you and your children

      Just learning about codependancy. The first caller reminds me of the blindness my mom and then I looked upon the intolerable behavior of our spouses.
