I guess the best thing to say is HELP, as I am lacking the ability to know how to help myself. I left my husband of 15 years due to frustration that has led me to self destruction. The hardest part is looking at my mistakes and trying to fix them so the marriage can work out. The bulk of the issues are anger, shopping addiction, abuse, and neglect. One would think that a social worker with 7 years of couseling experience would aid me in fixing the issues; however, I am simply too close to the patient to know how to make it better. I am not quite sure how the cycle started, but it evolved into my husband becoming angry and saying hurtful words, then I become angry and go shopping for therapy. In return, the bills make my husband more angry, which leads to more hurtful words. As far as couples go the two of us are definately opposites. He is shy and isolates, I love people and have made them my mission. My husband is wonderful with numbers and I am great at reading and the arts. I think I am just needing to vent a bit and seek some support as I struggle through this difficult time.
