Hi Laura, I'm Albert. Thank you for taking the time to read my long story, which I think I left some stuff out because it's just too long and I've told it a lot. Thanks for helping, and I think I'm going to leave her for good, because you're right, she won't change, no matter how hard I try. I just need to figure out what I'm going to say to her. Thanks for the offer, because I lost the only friend I talked to about this stuff because of her, and I just don't like bothering other people.
