Lets see now, my depression is mostly deep rooted from childhood sexual and physical abuse by my stepfather. Whom my mother married when I was 3 yrs old (divorced since 85). He was in Vietnam which was tragic I am sure and also involved in something called agent orange? sound right? Not an excuse for the abuse but figuring the way he was raised and beaten by his father as a child. Also going into the service at a young age and the horrific things that you see sets off a chain reaction. I don't know maybe I am just blubbering here....
I see where you are coming from...all I can say is I am very sorry...Whenever I hear of crimes against children I want our judicial system to forgo a trial and just put a bullet in the back of the person who committed the crimes head..."bang!" and be done with it...unfortunately that’s not where it ends as you well know
Yeah, I know all too well. One of the things that I was most obsessed with for probably the last 10 or 12 yrs is that he didn't serve any prison time and basically wasn't punished for what he did to me. A judge let him off with 6 months in a mental hospital and probation. He was allowed to remarry to a woman who had a young daughter. Who he also molested. Now he is on the states sex offender list. The judge might just as well of took him into an elementary school and said pick a child.
Anyway on your earlier post, I was thinking about my ex-husband. He works for a computer software company and makes really good money. When we were together he always was like if his friend Joe got something new my husband had to get one too. No matter the cost. They liked to go fishing all the time. So my husband goes out and buys a boat. If there was something that he couldnt get he would get upset of depressed about it. And sometimes even obsess over it. I wonder if this happens more with men or women. Like women obsess over clothing. I always have to buy new purses and shoes. Stay in style and have the latest jeans and things like that. Men with electronics and cars. I don't know.
