I don't have much to add today, there is continued process. She talked with me about the images in her head and how they are much less frequent now. I think that might be the worst part for the BS.
I am doing better, learning a lot about myself and how I ended up here. It is all so obvious when you are not mired in it. We met with a pastor today, who was very encouraging about what we have done so far. He has spoken with our counselor as well, and he shared the feelings they had about where we are and where we are going. It was a very positive meeting, and I think it gave us both a big dose of hope for our future.
So far, each day has been better than the last. I know there will be setbacks, but we should rejoice in the improvements as the occur.
Next week I will be getting tested for STD's. We have agreed that we need to wait until we can rule out everything before we resume sexual relations. It will be a while before HIV can really be ruled out, but it is giving me a chance to court her without sex getting involved.
