In my eyes... you're doing just fine. Keep communicating - you sound like you are doing better than I did in that department
keep it up. Let her talk, really let her...
For me as well, when I came across this site and started reading - it was like "Why - hello - there I am"
My partner has recently joined the forum too - he gave his first post today
Having him here, knowing he is reading and researching at his own pace, has helped with my feeling accepted, and with my own feeling of 'treading water'. I can now sit back and let him think and process. Knowing how hard he is trying to accept this in me, does wonders.
