Hubby has had an affair
My husband confessed to an affair last week. Needless to say Im on an emotional rollercoaster ride at the moment. We have decided to try and patch things up, but Im finding this more difficult in reality than it is in words. How do I get through this emotional turmoil ? I find each day Im anxious, nervous, tearful, and becoming an emotional wreck. I have made an apptment to see a therapist but thats only taking place in 2 weeks time. What do I do to keep myself sane between now and the therapists session?

From what I can gather from your message, you two HAVE decided to see a therapist, and you're now wondering how to get by until the first sesion? Once you've started the marriage counselling, the therapist ought to discuss these issues with you. Good responses all round from our readers. But I agree with Delene, Once a cheater does NOT mean always a cheater. Many people do make specific errors once, and then learn from their mistakes, repetition is not inevitable.
