Can not forgive or forget after 5 years
Hi Doc, My husband had an affair 5 years ago and although he is back in full force trying to make up for what he has done, I still can not forgive him or forget what he has done. I still get so angry and still cry a lot about this. I love my husband and want him but every little thing I encounter reminds me of what he did. Help me, tell me how I can forget this horrible experience.

Thanks
Lynne

Lynne, this is an excellent example of a situation where you really need to work with a shrink on proper counselling --- something unpleasant happend 5 years ago, and yet you have tied yourself to it and you are still embracing it, though it's prickles still hurt you. You need to work through this in counselling, so you can set yourself free.
