Question: 

How do I, as a betrayed deal with my husband choosing to connect and be authentic with his support group, friend and therapist, instead of me? He still avoids conversation, never initiates conversation. I don't count asking how my day is as initiating conversation. He floods if I come to him and show any emotion at all, making the conversation about his pain. He attacks me as I sit quietly because he makes up an entire story all by himself. What he has shared about his calls, visits and therapy sessions have left me feeling even more abandoned. I feel like his work has enabled him to come to the conclusion that even though he is not responsible for my healing he also isn't culpable for my trauma. I'm at the point of not giving him any opportunity to abuse me. The only constant I can count on is me being vulnerable and him taking advantage of it.
