Is this where i tell my story? I hope so because i have a lot of information stirring around in my brain.
Im 38, I grew up in a dysfunctional family. Both biological parents are narcissistic, as well as my older brother. I removed them from my life a year ago.
My father and my step mother were functioning drug/alcoholics. I grew up with my mother and step father who were a doctor and nurse. Very different families.
My stepmother overdosed and died a year ago... my father is an outlaw and refuses all healthcare and is impossible to deal with. I always loved my dad the most though, when i got married i even kept my last name, geez... i even have his name with a heart on it tatted on my toe. Eeew.
I heard last week that my dad molested a couple family members in the 90’s. It’s credible. I was never ever touched and i never lived at his house but i feel soooo dirty! Ive been doing EMDR to help with trauma from my mothers side and then i heard about my dad. I grew up in a family that never showed love. My family is jealous of my husband and my wealth, especially my older brother.
Oh and last year i did 3 cycles of IVF fertility, egg transfers, sold our house because we thought we had a daughter coming. Moved into a much much bigger home with a nursery and the pregnancy failed.
Oh, i also lost my soulmate great dane this past spring. Its been rough!

Hi Liloette,
Great you've joined us, am so sorry about your pregnancy that's terrible.
I dont have children, for whatever reason, but either way my dog is my soulmate and always will be.
I can't imagine life without him. We all need someone to love and nurture its an instinct , maybe more a female instinct I imagine (I could be wrong) but anyway hope to see you around
