Actually Brooke, yes I was that man. And it’s been a long painful road to get past.

In my defense, it was all after my wife died. I wasn’t in my right mind (I’m still not, but I’m getting help). I’m not at all proud of the destruction I’ve wrought. I’ve hurt people and I have much to atone for.

It’s an ongoing process. But I won’t pretend I’m not guilty of being self absorbed and passing my pain on to women who never deserved such treatment. Frankly I’m surprised they still talk to me. In fact, the latest victim has been instrumental in me seeking help.

Can I change? That’s a question I can’t quite answer but at least I realize there’s a problem now.
