Have You Met My Drinking Buddies?
Below are some comments from anorexics and their spouses about the victim.
Holly (Spouse): As the anorexic, my husband blames me and plays the victim of neglect.
Claire (Spouse): Everything is about how it affects my husband. He’s always the victim and it’s always about him. I have to say, “Wait a minute; we are talking about me right now, not you.”
Rachel (Spouse): He has an image in his head and he will not engage in a loving, caring relationship with me.
Stephanie (Spouse): His fantasy girl is NOT like the person he married. It is more of what he was married to before me e.g.,
Virginia (Spouse): My spouse doesn’t share anything unless I ask him and then it feels like I am dragging molasses out of a jar.
Rose (Anorexic): I used control to keep myself in what I thought was a “safe” place, but really didn’t allow myself to even dare to make the changes I needed to get more healthy.
Below are some comments from anorexics and their spouses about selfishness.
Virginia (Spouse): My spouse blew off our 21st anniversary (no card, no gift, and no dinner) because he is a teacher and had progress reports due that week. When I had our second miscarriage, my spouse left me crying at the OB’s parking lot and went back to work. Then he didn’t want to talk about it. Todd (Anorexic): There are certain foods that I buy that are just for me and I get angry when anyone touches them. I rarely share with others.
I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised:
