What it was like?
It was like waking up from a long, bad dream.
My husband had left me, and it finally hit me that I was potentially throwing my life and family away. I sat down on our sofa and told myself I couldn't live like that anymore - it was our 11th anniversary that was the day I stopped.
What it is like now?
I have a whole new and different life than I did 3.5 years ago. My husband came back, we are happily raising our kids together and we can work through it all together. I'm happy and healthy.
