Each week I hear from you guys. You send emails spilling your guts and telling your stories. Many of you are speaking out for the first time. It takes an amazing sort of courage to reach out. I'm always in awe of your bravery, strength, generosity and willingness to do the impossible.
I don't know how this happened and I'm incredibly humbled that you would reach out to me. So often, I feel like I am just one woman with one experience and I'm really just fumbling through each day following my own heart. I really love you all!
We have a friend in need.
She is engaged to a man she loves. After Stumbling across 'Scabs' she shared my story with her finance and they wondered if he too is a sex addict. They want to cross this bridge and learn more. Talk about courage, right?
Let's help them out. She is looking for resources on pornography and sexual addiction but has limited online access. She purposely hasn't installed a computer in the home they share because of his porn viewing habits. Like so many of us, she also has a daughter she wants to protect. Please list your favs in the comments. Which books and other resources have given you the clearest insight.
Read a funny story here! and thanks for the shout out Buffalo Gal!
Also, you may have already seen this but I've decided to sign up and wanted to invite you too. Join me, I would love to meet you all online! Addo Recovery is offering "Healing From Betrayal Trauma", a free online workshop for the first 100 participants. Check them out here and here.
Here's an overview of what they are offering:
Each week you will be given a daily lesson that will take about 30 minutes or less to complete online. Additionally each week, you will have the opportunity to attend a group session to review the previous week's online lessons, ask questions, receive answers, network with other women in your same situation, and learn additional content from a licensed clinician. We have tried to spread things out to not take too much of your time, as we know you have many other responsibilities. The program lasts for six weeks and covers everything from the science behind betrayal trauma through personal healing. The content stems from over a decades worth of research by best selling author and trauma recovery expert, Dr. Kevin Skinner.
What's even better is that the group sessions will be streamed online for live viewing and recorded for later viewing as well for those not in Utah.
We will begin the online portion April 24th and will have the first group session May 1st at 7:00PM MST.
I hope this information helps you understand what we are trying to do. If you have any more questions, let me know, I would be happy to answer them. Feel free to call me if you need to as well.
It's free if you sign up before April 17th!
