Let me first say, that I am doing great ... I am high on the drug that is my brilliant shrink, who has taken all of the lunacy that's landed in my lap and made such utter sense out of it, that it is literally feeling as though I'm getting an amateur education in sociopathy and related psychological breakdowns.
Without further ado - a snippet from this week's session, just for everyone's entertainment:
ME: "... you went so far as to open a bank account secretly to fund your website subscription and related antics."
(the point of the discussion at this point was NOT the bank account - that just got mentioned casually as an added detail)
WH: "I did not open a secret bank account!!!"
ME: "Huh? You did - I have the Routing and the Account numbers."
WH: "That's not a bank account - it is a 'pay as you go' ATM card, where I would take money out of our joint account at the ATM, put it onto that ATM card, and then use that to purchase credits on Ashley Madison.com!"
ME: ::: stunned expression, eyeroll:::
COUNSELOR: "Um, WH, I don't think there is too much of a difference between a secret bank account and a secret ATM, is there?"
A saying for my SI Family: "We may not have it all together, but together we have it all".
