I’ve been in therapy for a few months now. I had put off having Darling Husband come with me because Darling Husband was so resistant already, and I’m kind of selfish of that time. I like my therapist, I like going to therapy and I was anxious about how it would be if Darling Husband came. My therapist is a man of few words, and I worried that his less structured approach would not be very sucessful for a joint session. (I’m still worried about this.)
The appointment is tomorrow. It was going to be 2 weeks ago, but then I had so many issues with my meds that I put it off until things evened out a bit, which they seem to be doing.
I was in couples counseling once with my ex and it wasn’t a great experience. Not bad, but not good either. But Darling Husband is very anti-therapy and anti-medication. He thinks that you can just be happy if you want to be, like it is a matter of willpower. He also internalizes a lot. I started therapy around the time that he lost his teaching job, so he feels like I must not be happy with him or love him if I need to be in therapy. I know that my therapist can handle whatever Darling Husband throws at him, but I want it to bring Darling Husband and I closer together, not create issues. The only thing that Darling Husband said to me about going was that I “probably won’t like what he has to say”. And he’s been very back and forth about going, though right now he’s still agreeing to go.
Any advice or rassurance would be great! I just want it to go well. Especially since Darling Husband and I are going away together Sat am to Sun pm without DS.
