Wow. This is the first time I have read something like this. Believe it or not it is gratifying that I am not the only one experiencing this – to have someone who has been in your life for almost a quarter century to actually recoil at the slightest touch. To be so bitter, resentful, angry. No doubt we all feel a great sense of guilt but is a sense of guilt about something none us knew anything about. As for the name calling, heck my wife calls me everything in the book, most recently – a real piece of work – in front of my teenage daughter! Sure, I am trying to walk a mile in her shoes. And I am trying to give her the space she needs. But we all need human contact. Like everything else in life, you have to look forward not backwards
