Thank you Dr. K. I can’t tell you how reassuring it feels to finally see a Mental Health Professional who has, gotten every aspect of pornography, addiction, betrayal, trauma and marriage correct!!! You have written about everyone of these topics and they are all right on the money!
I pray that my very sick, mentally ill, husband can find someone to help him heal. It’s been over two years since I have learned about my husband’s past and secret underage gay porn. His guilt, shame, and lack of trust has kept him locked into a world of silence.
Our marriage seems as if it’s over and our children are disgusted!
I’m in weekly therapy, a member of Bloom and Hope’s Garden. I pray to Our Lord for help !😔🛐🙏✝️
