Thank you for your thoughtful response Dr Paige. There's definitely a lot of key take aways for me to unravel. You mentioned that local counselor would be one of the things I can do to help things along. Do you have any recommendations of the type of counselor I should look for? Questions I can ask that would improve the chances of me finding the right type of counselor for the type of situation I've discussed? Also I learnt that my husband does not tackle life from a feeling perspective at all. On a scale of 100, he says he would be a 2 in terms of how important it is for him. I think rather than stressing him out with forcing him to talk about my feelings with him, it's a little unfair on him. What do you think?
