I'm thinking the only decision I made was to marry this man who I loved and he treated me like this! Brain is fried!
Yall considered couple therapy?
Not sure how I will get him talking to a stranger along with me. We are not in debt at present, him having 3 months off work over porn. I have to deal with the stress of this, running the home, dealing with bills, bringing up 5 kids and trying to make his business take off. I also care for my dad.
I'll be entering my own course of regression therapy soon regarding my PTSD to do with childhood sexual abuse, mental and physical abuse through my life into adulthood. It's going to be a tough year.
Do you know about "codependency"? From what you are saying, it looks like you are codependent/caretaker: you aren't just carrying your own weigth but also that of your husband and father (plus the 5 kids). That's a hell of a lot for one person to handle: do you have any time for yourself?
It's going to be a tough year and you have an immense courage to do everything you've been doing. From where I stand you're a very courageous and persevering person. You're doing what it takes to change your life for the better. You have my full support and respect! Keep doing what you're doing!
I dont do everything, he does help a bit, and when I'm really down he takes over the house and the kids but he does get very stressed. I carry us all with his help. He is brave too for telling me, I wanted him to rid himself of the shame and now it is slowly coming back because of my honesty about my feelings, something I wont ever stop doing. He needs to seek help and I'm right there with him.x
