We had our first joint counseling session today. I don’t know yet how effective it will be but I’ll give it a chance before giving up completely; I do largely feel like I’m done but I do think I should at least give the counseling a chance. I honestly don’t think that he can really change but maybe he’ll prove me wrong. One chance though and that’s it; I’m not going to stick with this for years if there isn’t a drastic improvement right away. I have very little hope after yesterday; he spent the entire day on the couch in front of the tv (asleep about half the time) except for the 3 hour gap when we went out to lunch and to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. How can a person spend an entire day, every week, in front of the tv doing nothing?! I just do not understand it and it really makes me angry. The counselor really seemed to understand that I feel there’s a lack of participation and partnership on his part and we are focusing on that to start.

Pirates was okay; I much preferred the first one but it was still alright. At least the theater was air conditioned (as opposed to home).

Well I know this is short but that’s all I’ve got at the moment. I am emotionally exhausted right now but I’m managing somehow.

    ((Jill)) I know this is the hardest thing in the world right now and what’s worse is that there is no guarentee that things will be better. The vast majority is up to him. From your last post it sounds as thouh he is motivated, which is really important, but only time will tell whether he can or really is willing to change. Like the others said, Keep your head up and I’m here if you want to talk.
