MY LIFE WITH A SOCIOPATH
It started with a comment on social media, actually, that's not true, it had started long before then, but that comment led to a message, which led to several calls and ended with him driving his car into my house.
Through the use of genuine text messages, I've opened up my life to show what I went through in the last two years, with an aggressive, lying, stealing, borderline alcoholic, sociopathic husband. I begin by taking you back to the start, where life was good, well, okay at least and as the story unfolds, you can see how not only his behaviour deteriorates, but how the drip drip effect led me to almost lose myself, in a painful and sometimes violent relationship. I show how you can move from a place where you hide your purse under your pillow, and go out with your passport in your handbag to a place of happiness, and I do this through the willingness to share my pain, my confusion and the struggles I went through in order to come out the other side.
My Life with a Sociopath gives you access to the raw, unedited messages between me and my husband, which together with my honest commentary, provides an insight into psychological abuse. I hope that it may help those who find themselves in a similar situation and will be a voice for those who may have lost theirs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unflinching and real
Finished this book in one sitting.
I have no doubt that it took great courage for the author to open herself up and write this; it’s unflinching and she has my utmost respect and admiration for using such a personal approach. Her use of actual text conversations takes you deep into the minutiae of a struggling relationship in a way that’s easy to read AND difficult to read at the same time. It’s a quite unique approach which works well.
I’m sure it will help others who may find themselves suffering domestic abuse (even if they themselves are not yet fully aware)
Recommended ! ✊👏❤️

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest account of emotional abuse
Thank you Karen for this honest book about mental and emotional abuse. The text message style of writing really allows the reader to understand the mentality of this child-man! He is clearly lacking in any emotional intelligence and as a past victim of this type of abuse I can relate to the selfish and awful behaviour. I hope this book will help others. Best Of luck Karen x
