I had a 6 week affair with a coworker which culminated on a work trip where I slept with her. I broke it off the next day and came home and told my wife. She was in shock. We have been to multiple counselors seeking help and guidance before finding affair recovery. She still seeks specific details, which I answer all to the best of my ability, and the "why". I am doing lots of reading and spending time in the recovery library, but just don't have much emotional strength anymore. Her anger still dominates most conversations where she rails, shames, and belittles me most days, if she speaks with me at all. We have been through the bootcamp and begin EMS Online soon. How can I help us? Is this normal or healthy?
