It's a simple but powerful thing to recognize and reflect on having a good weekend, good for you! I think these are things that move you forward in the R process. It gives you hope doesn't it? "Hey, maybe we can be normal!" That's what I think anyway!
You asked if anyone else felt different after getting the whole story? Yes I did! Although I didn't like getting the whole story, it gave me a relief. I like to face things head on, I want the whole truth, no matter how sad and nasty. I had to ask my fwh many times if this was it, was there anything else. He kept reassuring me it was and you know what? I now can say I believe him and the trust is coming back. I felt much more hopeful after getting the whole story. I finally ran out of questions and I am thinking of it less and less.
Thanks for sharing your "little victory", sounds like a big one to me!
