i, and i'm sure everyone else here, are proud for you and wishing, praying, thinking good thoughts, for you.
you said something, though, that i would like to share another point of view with. over more than half a century and a decade of existing on this plane, i have learned that YOU are the only one in control of YOUR emotions. you chose what, if any, emotions you attach to any event. to say, "my wife always makes me feel insecure" in a contradiction in terms: a person's wife cannot make him feel anything. the person who has these feelings owns them. you can throw them away or keep them. you can nurture them or let them wither and die. the choice is always that of the person who owns those feelings.
i hope this helps, maybe a little bit. i have found it to be Truth (with a capital "T").
i wish you love and peace.
Mogs Congratulations!! I agree with your doc that you need to be taking care of you through all of these changes. You are worth the extra attention. And I second what wmnak said. That is a very important thing I have learned in therapy, is that I am in control of how I feel. People can not make me feel a certain way, it is how I choose to react. So you are in control of how your bf makes you feel. Hang in there, he is having a rough go of this too, and for a non bp person it is a lot to take on. Start to feel good about you from the inside, so you do not rely on how other's treat you to gain that feeling.
I wish you luck in this job...that is a lot of hours to take on, so heed your doctors advice and take care of you!
