I wonder if the "sociopath" is actually a narcissist. Both can be very similar but have a few differences. Very common for abusive relationships.

Wow, what a lovely man Norman is. Sounds like counselling has really helped him through difficult times. The grief counsellor at the end of the episode is amazing and makes excellent points.

Is there a Gofundme or something we can promote for this family? Why hasn't the hospital given him huge amounts of money for his suffering?

I was in an abusive relationship for several years and didn’t know I was being abused because I was so used to it. I didn’t know how to leave, I was so scared to end the relationship. The relationship finally ended when my ex died. It’s been over a year since that relationship ended and I’m still experiencing PTSD from all the verbal abuse. I don’t have a support system so I’ve counted on therapists to help me get through the worst time of my life. This episode means so much to me. I hope this story reaches more women who are being abused and help them realize that they don’t have to stay in a toxic relationship.

Marcus Salette Sr. you are right. the only why it will get talked about is if more men come forward (as you have), and share their stories.

Thank you. This is an important episode, especially the conversation around mental illness and suicide.

this episode was amazing! it's a different way to look at grief and everything that was talked about was very eye opening and made sense.

Interesting podcast but please be careful about encouraging people to intervene in domestic violence situations. Intervening could put you at risk or could actually increase the level of abuse toward the victim once he or she is alone again with the perpetrator. The best thing you can do in this situation (according to dv charities and support groups) is to call the police and report the incident, giving them as much detail as possible. Sometimes the "heroic" action, no matter how empowering it might feel, is the worst thing you can do.

As a huge fan of I Survived, I was so excited to find this podcast! I’m not at all a fan of the hosts/presentation, though. I know it’s very hip and trendy thanks to MFM (et al) to have hosts that do the “riffing conversation” thing, but it’s not at all appropriate for every podcast, especially one about survivors of horrible things! The hosts should be sent to the extreme background and let the survivors’ stories stand on their own. Unsubscribed.

Jessica Long your absolutely right. there is too much light hearted joking, laughing and chatting. it minimizes the trauma/experience of the victim. not cool
