WHY AREN'T THERAPISTS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, JUDGES and family court professionals aware of these individuals!? My Ex-husband has conned everyone with fake tears and a stories of child alienation: judges, therapists, guardian ad litem, Mormon bishops and fellow church members, teachers, the police.... My children and I were left without anyone to turn to; no one believed he could be that vindictive. I would've preferred bruises and broken bones to the endless emotional abuse, weekly threats and punitive litigation. At least our cries for help would've been believed.
I hope every judge and family therapist reads this book. Conventional wisdom does not address the victims of sociopaths.
I've petitioned the court to allow me to finally move from N.H. to the West where my family lives, but now I fear my life is truly in danger. I predict my Ex's life will end in a murder-suicide. I just hope I'm wrong. He WON'T LET GO!
I might ask you: How many of you have been in a relationship with a sociopath and you didn't know what is going on? How many of you are highly educated but still believe in the redeeming qualities of people? (BTW, just because you graduated from an ivy league college doesn't mean you have studied all about personality disorders and your degree qualifies you to differentiate between all of the mental illnesses out there.) Have you ever been emotionally involved with someone? Perhaps you have, and you are smarter than anyone else on the planet.
There are certain facts here. Number one is, resources are limited. If the law requires you to stay in a certain state, taking children out of that state is against the law. It is expensive and mentally exhausting to fight. I have personal knowledge of someone who suffered a heart attack while going through this. Number two, even if your ex is a sociopath, you will always hope that he loves and cares for the child he had with you.
There are all kinds of people in all kinds of situations. In the family I grew up in, we were lucky to see our father, who supposedly lived with us. To us that was normal. Why would we expect something more out of a relationship? It is hard to judge someone until you have walked in their shoes.
In recent years, we have had a media explosion with more information and more education. This author is in her fifties. Think of that. Back when O.N. was married, talk television was relatively new. We had yet to go the incredible journey with Oprah. There was no texting on cell phones - they came into existence later in her marriage. Information from sources like Google, MSN and Yahoo were way down the line. Until recently, there were no computer blogs or high profile groups formed to help protect families against the hurtful, hateful actions of sociopathy.
One of the saddest facts of this whole story is, the author will never be separated from the sociopath she divorced. They have children together and will have grandchildren. Her children will suffer from the relationship they have with their father. It will be impossible for the children, even as adults, not to discuss issues with their dad. The grandchildren will ask questions about the relationship. There will be family gatherings where she will see her ex. There will be many opportunities for him to exploit, manipulate and hurt her. And he will.
I applaud this author for bringing out the mistakes she made. We all make mistakes and they are incredible learning tools.
