I am going to share something with you concerning a very intimate relationship that I am having with someone other than my wife. I have been having this on and off affair for over a year now. At the beginning of our affair it wasn’t as stressful as it is today, and yes, it is ongoing. As time went by our affair started to become not of my liking as her visits became more frequent and unexpected. I try to act as normal as I can around my wife but I have this gnawing feeling as if our world could come apart at the seams at any given moment. I do not know how long I am going to be able to keep up this charade, but she is beginning to ask a lot of questions……
Are you ok?
Are you sure?”
“You have been acting different as of late, you would tell me if something was wrong, right?”
As I contemplated telling her about the affair that I was having a feeling of uneasiness set in, it was as if she already knew my secret, for she seems to always know more than she is letting on.
So I decided to tell her the truth…..
“Now honey you know that I love you, but there is something that I must confess.”
“I HAVE BEEN LIVING WITH ANXIETY.” We have been on and off for over two years now, I met her at the hospital after my car accident and my stage four throat cancer diagnoses. She was a frequent visitor, but she only came to see me, after visiting hours.”
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
