Divorce Therapy - Day 2

Tell me how you felt yesterday.

Yesterday, when I found out, I felt numb. All sensory feeling was suspended and a girdle of anxiety squeezed my chest. 

What did you do yesterday?

I didn't move from the sofa.

And Dave, tell me about Dave.

Dave went to see the woman at the end of the Mall.

How did that make you feel?

I cried. Sadness overwhelmed me, not for Dave but for me and for the family. Then I got angry, really angry. Next I even felt guilty; perhaps I could have done something to have prevented this.

How are things today?

I feel calmer. Inward looking and isolated. I know life hasn't ended but it just feels different. There's a chasm and it feels as though it is going to be there for a long time.
