Over the course of many years of my own recovery and working with partners of sex addicts and those wounded by infidelity, it is important to “Treat the Trauma First”
Here are some VERY helpful resources for those looking to understand their trauma experience and begin recovery. Just click the links you are interested in:
What is emotional and psychological trauma?
Is my husband/wife/partner a sex addict?
Also, there are many apps now available that may help begin to calm your nervous system. Calming the nervous system is a very important part of treatment. There are many activities you can do now to help towards this goal. Mindfulness Practices, meditation, exercise, walk in nature, nutrition, group support, self-compassion, yoga, meditation, and prayer are just a few.
