       I can speak for myself here. I hardly knew my dad. My Mom left him
when I was 5 years old. She did that out of self and child preservation. He
had a bunch of problems on top of being a alcoholic hard charging Marine.
Couldn't handle his own emotions for shit, but would kick the shit outta
anybody that would give him a hard time about it, or anything for that

    As far as my family life went tho, I was loved by everybody I came in
contact with. I had a lot of male influences in my life to take up for my
father not being there. Knowing this I always figured that him being gone in
my life was no big deal and I avoided talking about him in therapy until
this year. It's been some of the hardest therapy to deal with I have ever
had. Thank God I have a great therapist. Sad to say that she is leaving and
I will have to find another one in about 3 weeks. I could just tell myself
that I don't need anymore therapy and quit but continue with my meds.
Naaaaaaaaaaa I'm too sick for that so I'll find another therapist and if the
first one doesn't fit me.............Yourrrrrrrrrrr fired. On to the next

        The last year has been pretty rough as far as medical problems and
finance....well if you have no finance I guess you can't have a problem huh?
But I have handled things so much better that my family is amazed but don't
say much about it for fear of jinxing me.

        Ibogaine changed my life but there is so much more to getting better
for me, maybe for some of yall, that's your call. I feel like anybody that
has carried around an addiction for a while needs some therapy to help
themselves change the destructive behavior that got them addicted in the
first place. I can take Ibogaine any time I want to pretty much, but I know
that there is a lot more to getting better than that.

      Eric Taub put the idea of abandonment by a significant male in my life
back in 2004, it took me this long to get to dealing with it.

      Peace Love and Therapy
