The other day I went with my wife at my request to sit in during my wife's CBT session. I was quite frustrated with my wife saying that her counselor agrees with her about the thingswe are doing to cause her stress. Saying that she agrees that I am too involved with my ex wife and the kids and myself use my wife's BP as a scapegoat and blame her for all family dysfunctions.
I was relieved during the session and also surprised at how quickly my wife will turn on me trying to convince others that I indeed do things that are inappropriate which justify her untrustworthy behavior towards me. I in front of my wife explained the situation with my ex and how all correspondence is done in front of my wife or my phone and email is left open for her to look through any time. It was very sad because Buzzing truly believes her fears are real. That I am the cause of the fears and that I do things to induce these fears into her. From the counselor view point I believe she learned a great deal about her patient while I was there. I am hoping now her counselor can perhaps focus on these fear issues and irrational thinking at a much deeper level.
However this visit also made me come to the realization that my wife is more ill then I thought. What I thought was progress is just a starting point. It has now been confirmed that my wife is suffering from BP +++ as there is not only mood control issues but other physiological issues as well. Which is logical as it would explain the failure of med therapy.
So from here we investigate a private clinic where perhaps my wife can stay for a brief period of time and allow elite professionals a chance to re assess and start a different form of med + psychological therapy.
Kind of disappointing but good news in a way.
