We'll hear her side too. We don't mind.

oh, and like Dean we have serioso's (better known in my neck of the woods as Common Law) unions...we're not married! Does that make a difference?

I don' think I'm giving good advice here.

I wish Dean the best of luck.


I'm sure he can get this situation under control.

I would literally be the worst shrink ever. I'd have like a 69% suicide rate.

See, here at Piffo Sanitarium, we like to attack our clients. Call their wives and such.

Sorry, Dean.

Please E.P. this is pretty flimsy.

Dean has already sung his serioso's praises. It sounds to me like she's done more then her fair share to support Dean during some of his lower ebbs. EVEN if she were some grating harpy that is still an excuse and deflects on to someone else. I say the first step is owning it (which Dean has wholeheartedly, Bravo!).

Dean, perhaps though, your lovely better half has enabled things to get out of hand a little and it would benefit the team if you both went to seek support on how to cope with falling off the wagon, long term sobriety, the blame game and guilt.

How you doing though this week?

I'm doing okay. Just got back home after 12 hours on the road - the drive between Melbourne and Adelaide is a pretty epic one.

My serioso and had the opportunity to talk about my drinking and the possible futures where responsible drinking may well be manageable. It surprised me that Emily would contemplate such a thing but we both came to the conclusion that, for now, any drinking is a bad idea.

I'd like to develop an "off switch" where I can enjoy a couple of quiet ones but, to be honest, I don't trust myself at this point.

I mentioned earlier on in the this thread that I have a counsellor that I was seeing from back when I was assaulted at work. We can get into see her really easily so we reckon that is probably a good idea.

As much as Emily and I love each other, we have our issues - our points of disagreement - like all couples do. I have come to accept those and I deal with them...and I don't deal with them. My writing is one of those things that we haven't quite got to grips with. I try hard to delineate my writing time from my family time but it doesn't always work. The issue arises out of the perception that my writing is more important to me than my family. It's not. I'd like it to be more important to me than my nursing but I'm not earning enough from it. Truth be told, I have never fully recovered from having the shit beaten out of me a couple of years ago while on the job and I have lost any passion I had for being a nurse.

Emily and I aren't married in the church bells and God approves sense. We have been together 8 years. We have two children, a brownstone in the city and flower garden.

It's a marriage.

It's a nice one though.

I'm surprised at this. Care to share why?

oh, dean. this makes my heart sad. truly, truly what an awful thing that happened to you. a good caregiver is a hero and to have the air taken out of your love for that is a real loss.
