Myradorn,

I am sorry your visit was horrible. I can't imagine any therapist saying those words to you. And btw, I totally understand your resentment at the reasons for needing counseling.

Maybe you could try something simple that is truely helping my husband. Every morning he writes down one thing he is thankful for. And somedays when the depression is bad enough you just write down that you are thankful for the most basic thing. Like maybe you had butter for the toast. Or whatever the best part of your day that you can think of is. I have seen a HUGE improvement in him since he started and he is able to see good positive things more easily since he started this process. Maybe you could do that too. Just a thought.

As for my status, things are going pretty good around here. We are 3 months in and while I still have bad days they are less frequent. Although my H has to return to the "city of the crime" for work next month and thought I was going to be able to go with him, but cant. That will be incredibly difficult. But, for the most part, he is doing much better and that is helping us do much better.

Hope you have a better day tomorrow.

Hope it's nothing serious - I swear, the older we get the more I say "getting older ain't for sissies".

Yes, what she said was quite simply WRONG.

I think one way or another....actually making the choice to have any kind of affair is a part of some larger problem.

Hi there....can you believe we are still "here" after 3 years? It's like you said, we are DIFFERENT due to all the damage done by the selfish actions of our DH. The reopening of old wounds, yup, BTDT too :(
