I am a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy. My husband has been using drugs on me for my entire life. I was sickened and hospitalized a number of times and now am divorcing him. He has been using a coterie of his own drugs to sublimate, confuse and control me. I only recently learned he was doing this after divorce proceedings were set in place. I always thought I had health issues that were causing my illness. I am looking for a therapist who can help.
