I came to this board shredded to pieces, I think one year ago. Still I was several months in my extremely toxic relationship and tried to figure out if it actually was toxic. Lol. I separated in November, had some stalking, cruel withdrawal symptoms and felt like ****.
Susan Peabody (and some other members here) helped me a lot until today, and I can really recommend her coaching. I entered a SLAA group and finally admitted that I am totally powerless and absolutely unable to manage this love addiction. I am still doing the steps. I dedicated my time as much as I could to recovery and used a lot of money for this. Sometimes I had three coaches.
The withdrawal symptoms are nearly gone. I would say there are days where I nearly not think at all at my POA.
Incredible things happened in my life, and I can only be extremely thankful for God he gave them to me. I have much better boundaries, I learned diving, I plan cool holidays, my snowboarding is better, I found a new (male) friend. I learned to be alone much better. My income (that is related to this work) is rising a lot since then and I try to pass it on in my country (Germany). I lost nearly all my friends but I do not care a lot. I feel so much better.
On top God sent me a woman that was literally standing at my door. Of course I do not exactly know how this will work out, but I am so happy I attracted someone who is nice, decent and not a narcissist. And I am attracted, too.
Get on the right path and life / God will turn towards you. Trust it.
