These are some forums that helped me immensely.
Quora has many forums on Infidelity, Emotional Abuse and Narcissism Abuse
I am partial to the Facebook Groups because you will find a great mix of compassion with tough love:
- Chump Lady Nation (Infidelity Support) Pro leave the cheating A hole.
- “Post-Infidelity Stress Disorder (PISD) – Surviving the Battle in Love”
And of course the Chumplady.com blog which is where I got a needed dose of reality.
Here is the inevitable forum lingo:

Trickle-truth: admitting to the bare minimum that explains the evidence, then as more evidence is discovered, admitting to just enough to encompass that evidence as well
