Thanks, Lolli. Wisdom, from your lips to God's ears. I thought I could be strong enough to get through this, but I can't do it. I deserve a better man. I don't think he will ever take his treatment seriously. I have read every bit of information I could get my hands on, trying to understand. Trying to be supportive even when it became clear he was having an affair and turning friends against me. At this point....I am too weak to hang on any longer.
Dr Diva, I don't think you were listening to Lollipop closely enough!
Sometimes the STRONG thing to do is to walk away from a relationship or marriage in which we KNOW our loved one is sick, but if they won't accept they need help, staying is like going down on the Titanic and refusing a life raft. How silly would that be?
