I know a real good way to bring about the beginning of the end for his suffering. Hint: it involves the numbers 0-9, and some fingers doing some walking.

Maybe even reaching out and touching someone.




Oh wait, he already did that.

I'm joey's older sister. I outed him, after giving due diligence in allowing him to do it himself.

In joey123's words, I am now "dead" to him.

It needed to be done and he knew it and even agreed. Thank you for doing the right thing. Who all did you expose him to? I'm sorry he is not talking to you. He'll get over it.

Awesome job. By the way, how much older are you? He's 28, and you've been married 28 years?

I'm sure you are "dead to him" just about as long as it take him to get through withdrawal. Were you the one that sent him here?

A very rough few days around here.

Like you guys, I tried to get him to do it himself. He did do this ridiculous, poorly executed act, coming into my office and pretending that he had called. I told him I would verify. Of course, they had all their bases covered. OW pretended to be her husband on FB. It was very obvious. But I also let the BS's mother and brother know. In the end, I don't think they believe me because OW headed them off, told them I was a nut or something.

See, I tried to show restraint, let joey do it himself. It sorta backfired, though.


But, where there is smoke, there is fire. Hopefully, this family will figure it out sooner or later.
