Our lives have been chaotic since dday for more reasons than infidelity. since dday we have been in two court cases (both still going) for our two oldest children, we deal with the other parents of our two oldest children daily (their goal has been to ruin our lives since day one plus they don’t help us with child support and medical needs), my husband has lost his job twice (presently can't find a job because he has a prison background), he has had major health issues, we have struggled to make ends meet financially (ongoing problem), I have had to help take care of my mom, dad, and grandma who have health issues, our two oldest have major issues because of traumatic happenings with their other families, and MUCH more. It has been two years since dday. My husband is always finding excuses not to work on recovery because of all of our challenges that we face, plus he has a traumatic past (lost his little brother in a car wreck, feels at fault, went straight to prison for 5 years, an abusive childhood, PLUS he took a screening and we think he’s bipolar). We went to counseling twice together and twice individually but then he lost his job so now we can’t continue. He thinks he is beyond help and needs an intensive program to heal both from his past and the infidelity. Advice? (I have taken HH and we did ems weekend last july)
