Thank you Linda . Today...
Thank you Linda . Today is to be packing day to move back . I know this guy is crazy . I think what bothers me most is one why can’t I let it go two what is wrong with him . I do believe he loves me . I think he is mentally ill however he may have a unhealthy obsession with me ( or anyone he can get his hands on ) if I decide not to go back how can I 1. Get over the fear of delivering alone 2. Get over the loneliness. I don’t think I love him just the attention . I think maternity leave has isolated me from friends and made me just sit here. I mean I talk to him on the phone over 15 hours a day . How do I get my life on track again . No one wants to go back even me . I almost feel obligated at this point and feel bad for him . Like this morning he called me 50x before I woke up . Talked about how he is a true evil and how he wants to hurt something . I think he is nuts for real. I think about the happiness of having him when my baby is born but honestly that’s all I want him for . Sorry for being crazy but now that the day is here I just feel like ptsd. Thinking about his house and the routine and the miserableness of sitting there day after day . It gives me chills when I see his kitchen and all the work I have to put in to make him happy . I don’t know what this all means but it must be warning signs

Sarah, you have choices dear woman. You do not have to do anything that does not feel right to you. Your fears are not FACTS. You are a strong woman who already has accomplished so much on your own. You can get over your fears and you can put together a life that is full and loving and fulfilling. You can develop a relationship with a therapist like you are with me and work through your anxiety and fear about being alone. Your level of self awareness and insight would make you an excellent person to do good work in therapy. You can change your mind about moving in with him again, I think you know in your heart it isn't the right decision for you and your family.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
