  • Fan Mail

    • Kathleen Prokopik – Learning a lot about how to respond-thank you for very helpful and useful info. Also, I feel much better knowing I was referred to as our coffee lady and not the coffee lady 🙃 kp
    • Email from Anonymous – What do you do when you’ve gone through all the emotional responding stuff and so has your spouse and you get it and they just don’t? Sometimes it gets to the point where I try to emotionally respond to what they are going through and they know it and push back, not letting me join them in their emotions. Sometimes it’s just too much and I cant even try because I know it won’t do anything but make me feel inept and hurt. Thoughts? Advise?
