Do you feel as if you have no one to talk to about your partner’s Sex Addiction? Are you too embarrassed to share your pain with family members or friends because you feel that they won’t understand? Most women who discover their partner’s secret life feel the same way. Unfortunately it is difficult for others to understand the distress and pain that we feel.
I remember when I found out about my Sex Addict husband’s thousand dollar a month prostitute habit. I was devastated! And, when I sought comfort from some of my family members, I was shocked at their reaction. Instead of comforting me I was told to immediately leave or told that if I were a better wife he would not be looking elsewhere. Others equated my situation with a simple infidelity that could be forgiven. These reactions only added to my trauma.
That’s why I started this website and my membership Support Group website, The Sisterhood Of Support. The Sisterhood is just that, a group of Sisters (women) who share, support, comfort, encourage and understand each other during this time of chaos and crisis after their discovery of their spouses Sexual Addiction. The Sisterhood site is a warm, friendly place to chat, share or just read the topics and comments.
DISCOVERY CHANGES YOU FOREVER
Discovering that the man you love, the man you trusted and thought you would spend the rest of your life with, has a sordid and secret sex life, is horribly devastating.
It shatters your world and leaves you feeling confused, traumatized and isolated. What you thought was real is now a lie. You are suddenly forced to rewrite the history of what was your life.
The Discovery of Sex Addiction in your relationship changes you forever. But, when it happens–forever is a long way off.
You need help now.
Unfortunately it’s not easy to talk with even your dearest and most trusted friends or relatives about Sex Addiction. If they have not experienced Sex Addiction in their lives they just don’t get it. They are uncomfortable with the concept, they shy away from talking with you about it, they make generalized statements to gloss things over and, worst of all, many will subtly, or not so subtly place some of the blame on you.
You feel isolated; even counselors don’t seem to understand. You are dying inside and yet there is no one to help you.
The Sisterhood Of Support Is Here For You!
Here’s what some of the Sisters have to say:
The solidarity that I feel with everyone here just overwhelms me – going through this whole process alone and then finding all of the sisters who truly understand this just makes me feel so validated and I am Blessed to *know* all of you.
I wanted to leave the first second I started reading on the site!! I was scared to death. I thought “Oh No, not my H , not me, no no no no…” This site saved my life. I figured I had stuck my head in the sand long enough. I needed to hear every word and I still do.
SOS has been a godsend for me. It is a safe haven to share ~ we all understand the pain and the Sisters are always here for each other.
I am so VERY GRATEFUL for all of you! In my darkest moments, when I’m scared and lonely, I log on here and I feel love, support, hope again. I feel stronger when I’m connected to all of you. Thank you!
Thank you so much for all the wonderful things you do for us. Your website is a godsend for my healing and understanding.
JoAnn, Thank you so much for creating this site. You have created a forum that is changing women’s lives for the better. I appreciate you so much for bringing this group of women into my crazy ass little world to help me feel sane.
We are a diverse group of women, with different styles of communicating, and different insights and questions to share. But in the stew of our lives we share stories, laughs, hope, courage, tears, pain, and anger.
I’m still new here and have found the site enormously helpful in a very short time.
This is a safe haven to share ~ we all understand the pain and the sisters are always here for each other.
I could literally put thousands of quotes here from the Sisters, but I think you can understand that The Sisterhood is a very special place. A place where you will feel welcome. A place where you can feel safe sharing your feelings, doubts and fears. A place where you KNOW that everyone else here has walked in your shoes and understands exactly how you feel.
If you feel alone, with no one to turn to who truly understands what you are going through, The Sisterhood can help you.
The Sisterhood will give you the support and resources you need to regain your stability and start on your path toward healing. The Sisters are all here for you, standing beside you, helping you to find your way.
The Sisterhood is not a 12 step group, The Sisterhood will not ever imply that you are a co addict or that you are co dependent. The Sisterhood believes in empowering you rather than telling you that you are powerless.
The Sisterhood is a unique sort of group that does nothing more than support you with compassion, understanding and friendship. The Sisterhood is a group of women who are or have been in a relationship with a Sex Addict. Together we laugh, cry, share and support each other. We are best friends. If possible we visit each other, call each other on the phone when we are in need and share our joys and laughter as well as our pain.
You will find all sorts of discussions going on in the Sisterhood. We talk about everything, Sex Addiction, Personality Disorders, recovery, staying, leaving, divorce, children, jobs, stress, PTSD, health…you name it we’ve probably discussed it and will discuss it again. Asking questions in the forum is a great way to get input from the Sisters, or you can do a search through the thousands of topics and see what has been said in the past.
