Editor’s Note: The Lovefraud reader who goes by the name of “NomorePTSD” has a request. Can any Lovefraud readers offer her any advice or suggestions?
This is “NomorePTSD.” My blog post, LETTER TO LOVEFRAUD: Escaping my mother, the sociopath, appeared on Lovefraud in June of 2013. I talked about my healing from flashbacks that were a result of my childhood and beginning adulthood relationship with my mother, a sociopath who stalked me for 18 years, motivated largely by envy. We are doing total No Contact, and have essentially erased ourselves from the map of her world.
Now I have a bit of a dilemma with privacy. My husband and I moved to a new place, bought our home in a LLC and our cars are in a different LLC so we can’t be tracked. We are off Facebook. Our PO Box is quite a drive from our actual house, and we go by nicknames.
The issue I am wrestling with right now is what to do with my children (my oldest is 5, my next is 3 and I have an infant an am pregnant with another baby) in terms of privacy. Public school will not offer any sense of security due to the lack of privacy, and the fact that little kids have all sorts of cell phones and it’s a total fad to post everything online immediately. I can’t have my children being posted online by their clueless peers.
I also don’t want to raise neurotic and fearful children, so I am leaning towards home school. But I don’t know how to do this without giving out our personal information. Do you have any books, or people who you know that might have traveled this road before?
