We are in our second recovery. Our first D-Day was in 2006. We worked tirelessly through that episode and then a relapse occurred in 2012. From that point, my husband's sex addiction behaviors continued off and on till another discovery in November of 2017. He trickled-truthed until April, when all was disclosed, followed by another therapeutic disclosure and a polygraph, which he passed. At this point, in our second recovery period, he is working even harder than he did the first time around, and I even feel safer than I did through the first recovery period. I now see that the first recovery period was not really "real". However, as time goes on, I just have this feeling of doubt and uncertainty....not about him and his behavior, but about me and my happiness. I just wonder if it's in the best interest of my life and the children to stay with a man whose future is so uncertain....unfortunately I know from experience that relapsing is very real. I can see that's he's working hard and doing everything that he possibly can and I'm working on myself and my trauma. Will this feeling of doubt and misery ever go away, or is it a sign that I need to move on?
