She would only accept help under her own terms. But as I told Muffled, unless I decide soon to walk away, I'm going to be stuck with her legally because of the house. I hate to have to make a decision. I know what I want to do, but I don't know that it's the right thing to do.
I called my therapist today when I started panicking, but told him if he was too busy he didn't need to call. So of course he didn't. Never give my therapist an out. That's how very much he cares.
He really does think it's hopeless. He refers to it sometimes as if he is the person stuck, not me. Perhaps it pushes some personal buttons for him. But he seems to have been avoiding, hiding, and hoping it goes away as much as I have. And just as much a deer caught in the headlights as I am.
But I guess neither he nor anyone else is going to rescue me. I suppose my husband would like to slay the dragons, but he can't. And my Daddy, who was my ultimate rescuer, is the one who put me in this position.
