HELLO! again

Post by NVTS » Sat Jul 07, 2018 2:21 am

Hi all!

I am the member formerly known as Windy1. Several reasons for the change but the 3 most important are 1) History of the world part 1 is one of my favorite movies and an homage to Mel Brooks. 2) I realize how crazy my thinking has been. 3) My previous handle was a reference to my Sanskrit name and not my flatulence as some may have misconstrued.

I haven't been posting much lately but still check in and still draw a lot of inspiration and wisdom from all of you!

It's been nearly a year since my limerence went into overdrive and I literally thought I was going crazy. It took about 5 weeks from the time that the overdrive started to when I discovered the term "limerence" and subsequently this forum.

I can happily report that my limerence is about 20-30% of it's worst! I still think about her and daydream but I also have internalized the ridiculousness of my thoughts. I last had contact with her about two months ago and I don't do social media at all(thank God).

The marriage is a lot better. I have had many deep and meaningful conversations with my wife without disclosing to her. She has a severe jealous streak and I think disclosure to her would not be well received to say the least.

To all you newbies to this forum; please keep reading and posting it has worked wonders for me. I also have a T and many close friends and family who know what I am going through. All have helped me get to where I am.

I don't think that I will ever be "cured" as I am a serial limerent since childhood. I am grateful for having this experience however painful it has been, BUT I never want to go through this again.

I am leaving on a weeks vacation with my family, and I look forward to participating more in the near future!
