My husband and I are theoretically separated, in that we are living in different rooms of our home right now. We're trying to spend weekends away at family houses. My husband is very sad about how things have turned out. He's crying, asking questions about what will happen, and generally being miserable and looking to me for help. Of course, I feel pretty much the same way, but with a cold place right in the middle of my chest that's not gone away since our last "incident." How can I be a decent human being towards him while going through this myself? Should I even try to be a support person for him? Is this just the I'm sorry period after the fire? I am so mixed. I have never seen him like this, but I have also never been so low in our relationship. How do I balance trying to get myself together and supporting him too?
