Question: 

My husband not only revealed he had about a 6 week affair to me but that he has also been a very active out of control sex addict during our entire marriage. I don't know how to deal with knowing he has been with what he says has been thousands of women. Multiple women a day sometimes. I'm overwhelmed & am in disbelief. He says that he is not exaggerating with those numbers. He traveled for his entire career for business so he had all the opportunity he could want. Help. Life doesn't seem real.

Rick's response

Thank you for the response. We are in the midst of the EMSO course & have started the journey of healing. We both know it is going to be a long process. He is attending SAA 12-step group & I have joined Al-anon. I will find & read the book you recommended. I desperately want to understand this addiction & how to not only support him but how to support myself. Again, thank you. I am a hurt wife but with God's grace & mercy we can both heal.
