Thank you for your raw honesty about this terribly painful experience. I ached alongside of you as I read your beautifully written descriptions of the emotional neglect and abandonment you suffered.

Ever hear of the term intimacy anorexia? It’s not about sex, but rather it’s the avoidant partner’s fear of being intimate/known by another.

I hope you are doing much better now. Thank you once again for sharing this powerful story.
