Emotional Affair

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone else here has recently been through an emotional online affair and is suffering the same feel of loss that I am, I love my husband and don't want to lose him but am so struggling with letting go of the guy I was talking to online, I feel so alone, so confused, so depressed, so overwhelmed and don't know what to do. I have just started counselling but this is like a drug addiction, I am obsessed and I don't know how to deal with these crazy emotions!!! Any help, support is so so so appreciated!!

Hi Dominos

Welcome

My personal view us some of us humans are easily obsessed. Having an online affair is exciting, the adrenalin flows like it did when you met your partner.

To control your mind however is more important. Eg. If a pretty patient made her psychiatrist aroused there must be self control.

Is it normal to feel this way?- yes, is it acceptable to continue with your contact- no.

please google
