Antisocial Personality Disorder... Sociopathy is a Hidden Epidemic

I came across another really great article today that I want to share with all of you. It discusses why so many people are unaware of sociopathy and how harmful this behavior is to both families and society. Please read and share!

Quick Update and Upcoming Event

I appologize for missing a few posts here lately. This has been a busy month with work and parenting. My son is having a difficult time at school (no shock there, given his current parenting situation). With a new plan in place, I am ready to tackle this issue and prevail.

My legal case has stalled until March 20th. Depositions were cancelled at the last minute due to my attorney being sick. I invested an enormous about of time into preparing the discovery evidence, and still have a few items to copy. I feel confident and ready.

In the mean time, I want to share with you information on an upcoming event. If you are appalled at the way custody descisions are handeled in family court, consider attending.
