In just over a month, my 25th wedding anniversary will be upon us. Unfortunately it is one day before the first year anniversary of our Dday and also happens to be on 9/11. I had been looking forward to our big anniversary for the last few years but now I am not so sure it will be a happy day.
Even though my WS and I are well on our way to a mutual and happy reconciliation, this year of post Dday firsts has been especially hard on me. We have devised a great strategy for dealing with triggers but this day represents so much more pain then a single issue.
How did/do you guys handle these touchy days where feelings are uncertain and old memories can and do seem to surface on the drop of a hat? I want to present myself with confidence but know this could be hard to achieve on a day that brought so much hurt and pain into my world a year ago
