When I went through my final discard, I was 54 years old. I gave up my career to raise our children so I had no resume, no college degree, no job prospects. Angie’s work showed me a light at the end of a very long tunnel and she was there in person when I needed serious help to keep moving forward. As for my ex Narc, I know what he is now and I recognize others like him. I also know to RUN away from them as fast as I can now. ~KIM VAUGHAN
