The Emotionally Absent Mother: A Guide to Self-Healing and Getting the Love You Missed by Jasmin Lee Cori
Thanks L-F.

This week I was just noticing how much more important it is for me to dive into that part of my life (I even came to tell myself "she's not your mom" a number of times after realizing the depth of the correlation between my mommy issues and LO)

I just bought the kindle version of that book. Now let's hope I make the time to read it in this lifetime (My real name is Procrastinato... they named the thing after me :)) )

i heard about a great historical fiction book that covers limerence: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_Niet ... pt_(novel)
i read part of it and liked it.
turns out, there is a movie based on the book:
enjoy!
I'm limerence free and I'm not afraid of it anymore. I learn something new about myself and life everyday. There is hope and so much more. NC works. Be free, be happy! In retrospect, LE was about the best thing that has happened in my life.

My reading so far:-

The Tennov book.
Obsessive Love - Susan Forward
Toxic parents - Susan Forward

I really recommend the above.

Currently reading the Body keeps the Score,which is so far brilliant.

To read: Taming the Outer Child, and The Journey from Abandonment to Healing, both by Susan Anderson.

On the amazon page for the Tennov book, a reviewer recommends The Ethics of Ambiguity by Simone De Beauvoir. Has anyone ever read it?

i'm reading "The Road Less Traveled" by Dr. M. Scott Peck. it's not exactly about limerence, but it's about finding the direction in life and rebuilding yourself, very useful after surviving limerence. the author states things so obvious and fundamental, most of us doesn't even remember anymore and hence we are lost in life. just reading the first couple of chapters helped me with motivation to do things i procrastinated about.
i'm reading (or rather rereading) the chapter on love and will keep you posted.
