You feel alone, unworthy, spoken to like a child, or watched everywhere you go.


Physically your spouse hasn’t laid a hand on you and yet the verbal and emotional barrage that you get daily has you at wits end.

Have you experienced:

  1. Humiliation, degradation, discounting, negating. judging, criticizing
  2. Domination, control, and shame
  3. Accusing and blaming, trivial and unreasonable demands or expectations, denies own shortcomings
  4. Emotional distancing and the “silent treatment,” isolation, emotional abandonment or neglect
  5. Codependence and enmeshment

If so, then you are in an emotional and verbally abusive marriage.

    • I’ve check everything and have sent this issue off to our web guy. Here is his insights and suggestion if you are not getting this weeks show. Also, know that sometimes iTunes does have issues. Stitcher Radio is working fine at this time.
      I’ve looked at the file on Rackspace, the player on your site, and your feed – the raw feed coming in to feedburner (including feedburner’s feed) and it’s all working.

      I checked with Rackspace and they’re not seeing any issues either – they were able to get it to stream in all the same places I checked.

      I’d suggest anyone having trouble do a hard refresh, dump their browser cache and try again.
      Hope this helps anyone who is having an issue with this one.

      Love you guys.
