I am a 30-year-old woman, a published writer, an educator, and the mother of three children. I live in the United States, on the East Coast. I love hiking, baking, painting, biking, and bringing my kids to the beach to splash in the water.
I have been married for six years to a 35-year-old man who has, for 24 years of his life, self-medicated for depression, anxiety, and self-hatred, using sex with himself and others as his drug of choice.
While his addiction and my healing process after the trauma of discovery will be the topic of this blog, neither he nor his addiction defines me. The sex addict in your life does not define you, either.
It is my hope that by sharing my story as I live through it and the resources for healing that I find along the way, I may be able to provide some small help to you for your own healing.
