Hello everyone, I am a career woman, strong and supportive for others, but feeling like on the inside I'm coming unglued. I went through a very scary , traumatic incident almost a year ago, that has changed my outlook to everything. My spouse strangled me and I felt sure he tried to kill me, however he was intoxicated, no excuse, JUST saying. He was jailed 6 weeks, attended AA meetings and has been alcohol free ever since. He returned home after about 4 months and has been a different person. But for me it is always a thought. I don't sleep well, feel depressed, do not enjoy normal marital activities. Feel like people are always saying, "you know he tried to kill her and she took him back." Mind you it was the only time there was physical abuse in 16 years. I just don't k ow what is going on inside me.
