    Hey Paleobird,

    I noticed that you hadn't been around! I'm so sorry to hear about the SO. I've known a few Dr.Jekyll-Mr.Hydes, and your insight is right: these people need weaker ones around to feed off, and to take their crap when they choose to dole it out. You're lucky that you decided to go on holidays together so soon, and saw his dark side before you got in too deep.

    Hope you're doing ok! Breakups (even when they're for the best) split the world open a little bit, and make us question and doubt everything.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    thats pretty crappy PB but better a breakup now than following an injury inflicted during a rage. it sounds like there's a lot of issues he's never dealt with- just built a new persona on a very rocky foundation. may i ask what caused the 1st breakup?

    either way you don't need a crappy partner, being terrified of opening your mouth is no way to live.

    I would imagine the pup wouldn't want him around now either- did the dog actually like him or did you see much submissive behaviour from the dog around him. I'm just curious as dogs sometimes see things in people we dont
    When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
    27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

    man, that stinks.

    i doubt it's actual multiple personalities either, but sometimes people have 'other selves' that they act out on occasion. It can be hard for them to heal and integrate themselves, so it's easier to keep it emotionally compartmentalized. I'm sorry that it scared you (with the truck thing), and that the whole thing ended in such a disappointed way.

    How scary! I'm glad you are okay, and sorry that it all turned out like this. You are wise to get out now that you have had this warning, though. Peace.

    Hmmm. I think the only thing I can say that hasn't been said is this: *hugs*
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    From me too. So sorry to hear this happened to you but your insights/instincts seem so right on. Best to be out of it now. It is too bad for him but he needs to face his own demons not take them out on you or anyone else. (no pun intended) I'm so happy you are safe. Be good to yourself, breakups suck even when they are for the right reasons.
    Breathe. Move forward.

    I just eat what I want...

    Thanks Canuck. That's the same thing my BFF/2nd mom said.

    Yep, if something is going to crack, a vacation is the likely time.

    Very insightfully worded. My world has been feeling a bit split open.

    That's exactly what i was thinking. Even if we could put this back together, I would always be walking on eggshells. The dog actually liked him a lot but on the way home was cowering behind the seats.

    Thanks. It does feel better to get it out in writing.

    Yeah, I don't know if this *clinically* meets the definition of MPD, but that's sure what it felt like to me at the time. His entire voice, diction, bearing, posture, vocabulary, etc. was a completely different person. I kept trying to think about the really sweet guy that I had shared so many happy giggling moments with and they were not the same person.

    Yep. I don't ever plan to "go there" again. Thanks.

    Exactly. Is finding a SANE person too much to ask?

    Thank you. I really do feel sorry for him and sincerely hope he gets some help for his problems. I just hope the next girl he meets doesn't have a more lethal encounter with Jake.
