[nfb-talk] FW: I Did It Again!!!

Hello Mike and everyone,

    I'll set the standards for my life and how I react to things that 
happened years ago. Had the individual kept in contact with me in 2008 this 
discussion wouldn't be happening right now. It serves them right. They had a 
chance to stop it but failed to do so. Again I'll make these calls 
concerning my past. A good healthy dose of exposure therapy would do wonders 
to get this sludge out of my mind for good. Several other situations were 
treated this way with success.

Peter Donahue
