Just for Fun: Female Defense Mechanism Radio Control

I found this the other day while I was looking for images on Flickr. Thought you might enjoy it or, at the very least, find it familiar.

    Funny! My not-yet-ex-BPD/NPD/PTSD husband would have also needed a “thinly veiled threat” button, a “flat out threat”, and my favorite, the “direct death threat” button. Thank God for modern recording technology and protection orders. He’s in jail now for Menacing by Stalking and Felony Breach of Protection. (active-duty Army Major) Me? LOTS of therapy, read every book available, and MOST importantly, I figured out WHY we attracted each other to begin with – both needy. Unfortunately, he was needy-empty with a broken love tank. I was needy but over-flowing-with an empty love tank. And guess what? I can’t fill his tank (and he never even tried to fill mine) but I CAN fill my own since my parents didn’t. And I HAVE!! With God, I know I am never alone. Funny, I thought I was “with” my husband and actually, I was ALWAYS alone. He was NEVER on my side, could never count on him but he was just THERE. When I first filed, I was so alone but HAD to stay away from him for my own safety. Other men couldn’t make me feel any better but God has. Now, I am never alone and can approach my next relationship without need — only love and want. MUCH BETTER!!!! Five years of therapy – thanks Dr. Buchanan!!!!!!!!!! Also, authors Drs. Townsend and McCloud – love em’!!
