10.0 RICK DOBLE'S BACKGROUND OF ABUSE AND ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS

=== Introduction To My Story

When I finally understood about abuse and personality disorders (PD) in 2005, it was as though a window had opened for me. Suddenly I understood the behavior I had been living with most of my life. When I was dealing with these problems in the 1960s and 1970s abuse and PDs were not well understood. So at that time I was on my own doing the best I could.

For some unknown reason, I knew I wanted a "healthy" relationship and not a destructive one like those that my family engaged in. I cannot tell you why I had this desire or insight or drive to move toward health but it has been a life long effort. Since I was surrounded by dysfunctional people, I should have been dysfunctional myself, but that did not happen.

I am not trying to make myself into anything extraordinary; I am sure that I did many abusive things as I grew up BUT I always moved away from that kind of behavior toward something better that I did not really know but was sure could be achieved.
