HI
Aloha,

This is a tough time for many. From health to financial to job to personal and other issues, our lives have been complicated even further.

For those of us dealing with other issues like an A (affairs), DV (domestic violence), abuse and other issues, we need to be able to reach out and help those who need it.

MA has been around for over 10 years and helped serve the international community deal with traumatic issues like A, DV, abuse, etc.

The COVID-19 virus knows no boundaries. This virus has been classified as a pandemic and affecting the lives of many, including us.

Please know that we are here to provide supportive assistance within our arena. Please let us know how you are doing.

It is good to see acts of kinds and support and it is also sad to see those who seem to thrive on misinformation and hatred. Let's share how we can differentiate between good helpful info vs misinformation with bad agenda. That alone can calm some down and reduce panic episodes.

We have learned many good tools in dealing with difficult persons and situations. Implement those tools as needed during this time of concern as well.

Look forward to hearing from you all.

May you all be safe.

Take care,
Orchid

Hi Orchid. Thank you for your kind post. These are trying times indeed. In many ways, I consider myself lucky that this is affecting me less than it is others. Being retired, I had no job to lose and other than losing a chunk of retirement savings, am doing better than most in that respect.

Re the A, no evidence of any contact between H and DID though I remain vigilant. Biggest challenge is H has zero interest in talking about affair. It only seems to dredge up bad thoughts for him. His approach is to simply sweep it under the rug.

I bought "Not Just Friends" by Shirley Glass and it is somewhat helpful, in a general sense. Securing a counselor is not happening right now with our social distancing efforts. That said, H and I are spending lots of time together and outside his reluctance to discuss the A, with minimal conflict.
