It has been 15 months since d-day and we are on week 2 of EMS Online. My wife still has questions. I am willing to answer them for her but the more time we spend on them the more emotional she gets and as she does her need to punish me (by shaming me) gets out of control. This effects me in several ways, not only do I feel worthless, in order to protect myself from her attack it causes me to detach myself and unable to offer her anything she may need, and it has the potential to trigger (and often does) a neurological disease I have (Narcolepsy-Cataplexy) that reacts to stress by robbing me of my physical strength to function and ability to stay awake. Is there anything that can help her get control of the resentment she expresses for me that comes from her anger as a result of the deep pain I have caused her?
