I wrote this to a fellow blogger this morning and wanted to share it here. It's not something I haven't said before, but it bears repeating.
The wives of my fellow sex addicts who blog about their feelings, experiences and struggles have saved my life and helped me heal in so many ways. You all have helped me to see the pain that my husband has never been able to express, and more than that to recognize that when I act out with a married man, I'm doing far more damage than this senseless act could ever be worth. Margaux at Love in the Time of Addiction, Mary at A Room of Mama's Own, Woman Anonymous7 and so many others are doing healing work. I'm just sorry it takes so much pain to be the healer.
I hope in some small way that by saying things that perhaps their loved ones cannot say right now, that I have been a healer too.
