One year ago, my husband’s two-year long affair was revealed, as he invited his affair partner to attend a party held at our house, and they both just lost it. He had asked if this ”old, close friend” could join in, not telling me that they had secret contact for two years, nor that they had a sexual relationship about 20 years ago, just one year after my husband had wed his affair partner and her husband. He ended up with her staying for 22 hours. As they got lost in each other, in front of 20 people, I was devastated, traumatized and humiliated in from of public in my own home. I now have flashbacks and triggers that go on and on, like a film with my husband and his affair partner acting like this was a foreplay. In my house. I have been into PTSD-treatment, and counselling, but as my husband has kept on lying, the trauma just starts over and over. What more can I do to overcome this trauma?
