When I typed my thoughts about an abusive relationships I was in at the time back in 1996, I had no clue that over a decade later, my work would be shared with the public. But something happened when I started a new relationship and became pregnant, I also felt an overwhelming push to want to deliver my hurt, share my victory, and warn others why one must be mindful of those men and women in this world who know how to hide their pain. Abusive people are among us and the likelihood that you or someone you know will end up with someone with a mental illness is highly probable if they have yet to do anything about their personal woes.
Do take a look at Laboring to Love an Abusive Mate wherever books are sold online. Create and maintain your personal boundaries and if something doesn't look or feel right with someone you just met or have known for awhile, chances are it isn't!
