Her is the situation. My wife's therapist asked me to write a letter to my wife telling her how her addiction has affected me and what my expectations of her are when she returns home. In turn, my wife is to write a letter as if it is from me to her stating the same things. We are both going to read them at my wife's next session. My wife is still in a Florida rehab by the way. I have written a n honest letter describing my emotions as sadness, worry and anger. I have also mentioned the fact that I am very tired physically and emotionally from the repeated job losses and having to assume her financial responsiblities for long periods of time when she isn't working. ( These expenses are not related to our household. I pay all the bills here.) I am not sure I should mention that, but damn it is tough doing it all. I think I should be brutally honest, but I just wanted to see how you all felt. I really hope I get so answers from someone who has had a spouse in rehab.
