My husband has access to a counselor (for him and for me) through his job. Today we have an appointment. I'm looking forward to having a professional to talk to and work with as I'm making this change. I have a lot of deprogramming to do. The support of others in similar situations online has been immensely helpful but I'm interested to see what difference a trained counselor can make. My biggest hope is that it will speed the healing process.
I'll return and report.
