Thanks so much for your supportive post, Lucie. Yes, you're right months later was definitely not part of my request!

I wonder if my husband would consider taking ADs. I doubt it, because he doesn't really recognise that he has a problem, and he views doing his therapy as a sort of 'favour' to me, but I don't think his generosity would extend as far as taking psychoactive medication! I might ask, though. I suppose it depends how much is at stake for him. But that's a great idea, if I can get him to agree!

I could easily be participating in unhelpful relationship dynamics. I have a history of trauma too and sometimes I over-react to triggers. It's definitely something worth considering. I hope this kind of thing will become clear as he gets to know himself a bit better through therapy. If the therapy goes well, I'm actually anticipating hearing a lot more anger from him than before, but if it's expressed in a reasonable way I can handle it.

But whether I can tolerate renewing our intimacy... I guess that remains to be seen.
