Re: [MOL] Kathy : Ports



Thank you, Cori.  I have many good friends, all of whom are shocked and
saddened by Jerry's behavior.  I haven't had the heart to tell my parents or
my children yet.  I've been "protecting" Jerry for a long time -- I've been
what they call a true "co-dependent," much as I detest that term.  Actually,
all I've been doing is trying to survive.  It ain't easy sometimes!
Counseling is futile when you're dealing with an alcoholic, apparently.
They have this talent for twisting things and making everything someone
else's fault.  Jerry's rationale right now is that I haven't been "any kind
of a wife."  I've been sick for nearly two years, Cori.  It's hard to be a
sex kitten with a port sticking out of your chest and a bald head!  LOL  I
need to get myself together here.  I'm going to be okay.  My people at work
are wonderful, I have a lovely little house, and I think I'm going to get my
baby bachelor brother move in with me to share expenses.  I adore him and
we've always gotten along very well.  It'll be okay.  I do appreciate your
concern, my friend.  Love, Kathy
