Re: My Story

Yes. Normal as in being the norm or majority, and yet the majority are traumatised. We live in a very sick society.

Re: Limerence with married man

Tou ask how did I survive limerence. Ive written and videoed much about what helped me on my own journey. Its the road less travelled by most people as its the harder choice.

Re: Could CODA help with Limerence?

All of us with limerence are codependent, i describe it is codependency on steroids

I think any form of group support can be helpful, no herm in trying, may also be worth looking at SLAA, sex and love addicts anonymous

Re: My Story

A familiar story many can relate to. There is much collective wisdom on this forum if you choose to listen. Most of us seem to have to learn the hard way. Your LO sounds like a player, trying to seduce you knowing you are married. Im not sure what safety and security you represent, however this may ...

Re: Another study on limerence-can you help?

Re: Coping with rejection

I have to admit, I still struggle with the 'no response' reaction, but, I have to keep it real. A 'no response' reaction sends a loud and clear message of its own. To me, in simplistic terms, it means "leave me alone". Agree with the other poster's- our limerence brains manufacture reason...

What's your thoughts on it David? I believe therapists don't have to experience everything in order to understand a concept, however, when it comes to limerence, would you recommend a friend of yours (therapist) who you know hasn't experienced it?
