I walked in on my WH and OW on a Wednesday two months ago. Every Wednesday since then has been a nightmare of slo-mo flashbacks, triggers and tears. I've taken many of those days off work since I was so dysfunctional.
Two days ago, after a long, healing conversation and some actual pleasure in each other's company, my WH looked at me at the end of the day and said, "Do you realize that today was Wednesday?" I hadn't thought about it until he said it.
It's a baby step, I grant you, but still a step. Today I have hope that I might not be trapped in hell forever.

Currently wondering how someone who vowed so much, can care so little

Small steps, sistah, will get you down that path to recovery. Keep walking!
Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.
