But oh, this journey right now is not joyful. I'm just trying to survive right now.

Just my take from a woman who went through the wringer with her poly boyfriend (its a huge part of my blog from Christmas 2010 until this past summer 2011). I'm passing this on as it might help you find some patience with him.
Thank you so much. I'll try to be patient.

He makes her very happy and she loves him, so he must be special even though this situation is really painful.
