A few weeks ago I asked the question, "How Do I Get past the Uncontrollable Fear of This Happening Again or That It Is Still Happening?". Thank you for your help. After listening to your response we organized a polygraph, my mate said he had no issues with undertaking it as he had nothing to hide. The polygraph was undertaken and he failed 2 of the 3 questions. A third disclosure came soon after with what I hope is the remainder of the details. If it is (he will be undertaking another polygraph soon, although the thought of him failing again and me going thru this pain again gives me panic attacks) where does this leave is in regards to a timeline in recovery? We are now 10 months post the first discovery. In this last discovery I feel like I have to unlearn the things he told me to believe as a number of things he promised me never happened actually did. Are we to expect that we are back at day one? Do we add another 10 months onto the timeline? I am committed to this relationship and although the pain of being deceived once again, even through week 3 of EMS Online, it tremendous, I am feeling hopeful that he may finally of given me the information I need to start to heal.
