Then finally 6/21/13 he said he met her that day. They went to Barnes and noble to a public place. Again, after d day. his excuses are lame again. he said one of the main reasons he was talking to her was that he wanted to "please" me better. So he met her and he took his laptop and went over some suggestions on ideas to help us in the bedroom
I could never R with somebody who'd actually say something this stupid. He actually said he went to another woman to get advice on how to please YOU in bed? If that were true, wouldn't it make more sense to ask the woman you are actually sleeping with what she needed him to improve upon? What an idiot!
The numb feeling is normal. You've been dealt another blow...one that hurts even more, so your body's defenses kick in.
I'm so sorry hun. (((hugs)))
Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.
It's only worrisome if you get too comfortable with the numbness and work against feeling your feelings as they arise, as they will.
A good IC can go a LONG way toward helping you cope with your feelings---and the numbness, too. Do you have one? I can't recommend it highly enough.
(ETA: The stuff about him consulting with OW about techniques to improve your marriage is shockingly UN-original. I, too, heard that OW was "like a marriage counselor" and "they helped each other with their marital problems." Um, no. They created marital problems. Still, the foggy WS is an interesting breed. If your husband is not in IC himself, he needs to be. He also needs to establish FIRM and PERMANENT NC with OW, give you full transparency, and commit to R--something he does not seem to have done; no wonder you cannot decide, yourself! He's giving you nothing to work with. I hope he is like many, and pulls his head out of his nether regions before it's too late.)

Nothing left in your emotional bag to pull from. It's completely normal.
No thank you on getting martial or sexual advice from OW. Seriously? So anytime you are alone you will think - oh did she suggest this? It is disrespectful, ridiculous and rude. Lame doesn't begin to cover it. Duh.
I am sorry for your hurt but I think you know R isn't possible without two people committed to it. You WH is not bc he is breaking NC all over the place and continuing to justify his behavior. Fog.
180 his butt, contact a lawyer and get a better idea on your options. Don't allow him to keep you in purgatory.
You deserve better than this TT BS.
Lieshurt, I agree about WS and OW discussing "me" it is stomach turning, but yet again so is this whole ordeal!
I have an IC appt for next week. WS is getting his scheduled today.
I feel with this numbness I don't want to be with him. I'm going to give it time to make a decision. There are 2 children involved and I don't want to make a decision out of anger or haste. I want to hopefully have a clear mind then decide.
This just sucks!!!
