Thanks for remembering, Dinah. My husband *is* a wonderfully sweet and caring man :).

You sound a lot like my therapist. He gives good suggestions for talking to my husband, too. He always asks, “have you tried talking to your husband about this?” Good idea as most of the time I have to answer no. For the moment, though, I think I need to back off a little. Every time I bring the subject up, it gets extremely tense between us very quickly. So, I’m going to sit tight for a little while - probably until I see my therapist again. Interestingly enough, that will be on June 5th – our six year wedding anniversary. So, I might need everyone’s help on that day. I’m guessing I’ll want to run home from therapy and talk to my husband about it again. Don’t let me, okay? I don’t want to risk spoiling a hopefully nice day/evening with him. I can always talk to him about it the next day, right? Sorry, I digress.

I have come up with some things I can live without in order to see my therapist (unfortunately, air and water aren’t factored into our budget, though ;)). I hope I can get over the pride thing about the money. That’s a tough one.

I should also tell you, I did tell my therapist if I end up staying with him, I want to know that he isn’t going to move out of state or something. He said his roots are here and it takes years to build a new practice, so he doesn’t see that happening. I told him I wanted to know that he was going to stay in this area forever and he said, “is that what you want? Forever?” I said, “umm, yeah.” (Again, I rolled my eyes. Poor guy, I’m always rolling my eyes at him, I think.) Anyway, during this discussion, I thought, “if Dinah can ask for forever therapy, so can I.” Sadly, he didn’t promise :(, but I suppose I understand.

Thanks for calming me down and helping me with the right words for my husband. I truly appreciate your wisdom, kindness, and support.
