Hi Dinah -

My life is on a teeter-totter right now, or so it seems. I find myself tearing up now and then with no provocation. And another part of me in still in disbelief that this is really happening to me.

My husband is an attorney so getting a good one will be extremely important. I called my best friend (who is also an attorney) for a referral a month ago. I need to see her soon. I feel like the appointment will open a huge can of worms for me and I'm trying to just get through my job move and the holidays right now.

"How can I help you right now?" is what my t asked me today. I paused and replied, "I feel largely unsupported when I hear all the things you would like me to say or do to save my marriage --- for instance, 'you need to have an open and honest conversation with your husband and use i statements' --- wouldn't that be nice if he would talk with me?"

My daughter's t called me this afternoon. She was extremely supportive and understanding.

This is the last week I'll see my t three times a week. A part of me is mourning this support and connection as well, even though I'll still be seeing her. But maybe it's for the best.

Asking for help from my parents was the lowest point in my recent life --- it feels like accepting help from the devil.

That's where I'm at today.

Thank you for your caring thoughts and concerns.
