I am in an abusive relationship, and I'm the one taking the abuse.
No, you're not going to see me walking around with a shiner, or bloodied nose. Nor will I be reporting to a shelter to seek help. No restraining orders are to be issued.
It is more in the realm of emotional abuse.
Like many lousy relationships, I'm in it by my own choosing. In fact, I'm the one who actively pursued it and have chosen to stay in it for well over forty years.
It is my connection to the Chicago Cubs.
