Your message on Emotional Manipulators hit home closer to me than home is. I grew up in an ACOA environment, am on disability at age 45, have a master's degree and am a certified grant writer, but am currently living in the home of emotional manipulators with quite a few around/in my life. The only reason I am still here is financially. I am trying to sell anything I can, but am down to basically nothing left. Now I am brainstorming how to have enough to leave and I have no idea where to go, but know I need to go somewhere where there will be support and hopefully healthcare. However, I feel if I get out of here, after awhile I wonder if some of it won't go away. Except for the complex ptsd I have because of situations. I want to work again. Any suggestions please email email@example.com.
