Hey, it's great that we finally learned how to "hide" and "show" different boards to different members on this forum. This is something I never knew how to do before, and it opens up so many new options.

I just created a board for "Spouses of Addicts". (Don't feel bad if you can't see it, after all, you get to be the "addict" himself!!  ;D)

If you are the spouse of an addict, please send me an e-mail of PM and I will add you to the "Spouses of Addicts" group so you can post there and get chizuk (and share chizuk) with other spouses.

And by the way, if you are a spouse of an addict, feel free to vent on that forum too. Your husband can't see what you write anyway!!  ;D ;D

Yes, but we can't see what they write - hey, let's give them some space to vent.

NEWS REPORT--JUST IN:

You'll notice that in the addict's forum we have all chosen usernames that reflect the way we view ourselves--that reflect what we are trying to become.

Names that ring to a tune of:  Holy, Striving, Don't despair.

Recent reports show that the names of the spouse's forum have a different flavor to them, they reflect how our spouses view us:

"I HATE YOU,"  "RESENTFUL," "DEJECTED," "WHATWENTWRONG129."

It would be interesting to explore the significance of these name differences.

There are other women signed up, but tell your wife to POST something, for goodness sake  ... Someone has to start, or no one else will have who to respond to!
