Before my wife’s affair, I didn’t mind spending time by myself. In fact, I looked forward to it. At work, I didn’t expect calls or texts but they occurred naturally during the course of a day. Since the affair, all I want to do it be around my wife. I want to have her hold me or me hold her. I want to hear her say I love you, I want her to call or text me while at work. I don’t like alone time and I feel anxious being alone, at first it was because I don’t know what she is doing...that is I’m worried that she is reaching out to the AP. Now, I just want to be near her. I feel that at times I will even ignore our children. Am I becoming codependent or am I reestablishing connection?
