I'm 18 months out of a marriage to a man who is addicted to prescription medication. We were married 17 years. I have only three friends, all male, because that's who I am comfortable with.

I'm a listener, not the talker. But I'm so empty. So changed.

Maybe your take on Al-Anon? I'm having some anxiety, but I'm almost convinced it's excitement.
