In 2008 I was 51, still married, sober, in nursing school, the father of 9 children (#10 was still to come), finally on meds for bi-polar disorder, still secretly acting out, in therapy but still not telling the truth about being abused. It took me another 5 years to get there. Thats one of my adopted children, a soccer star, with me.
