As I am trying to navigate my emotions from the betrayal I am going through bouts of returning to ground zero every time I run into the affair partner. My husband who is emotionally unavailable is trying to be there when I am more under control but when I need him the most to reassure me that I’m the one he wants he gets overwhelmed and leaves me because he goes into his shell for hours! I know he’s afraid of my emotions because he doesn’t even know how to deal with his own but I feel so alone and abandoned. How can I get my emotionally unavailable husband to walk toward the storm instead of away?
