Supporters Survival Tips Part 4

Do we need a Bullet Proof Vest?

Sure, there will be things said in anger and frustration while in a cluster cycle. Yes, mood swings are common. No, it’s NOT your fault. No, YOU can’t trigger an attack for her/him. Yes, you WILL get your wife back once the attack is over. Yes, we all feel lonely and very isolated that our husband has been taken away from us. Yes, we get pissed off at the Beast!!! Yes, we know of clusterheads out there who have substance abuse problems. Yes, we cry too.

Educate yourself!! Read everything you can, take the time to go through ALL the buttons on the left and follow the links there

Finally, but MOST importantly! TALK about your problems. That’s what we are here for. We are NOT professional counsellors, but we are fellow warriors and we completely understand what you are going through. Nothing you say will shock us, and no one is going to judge you for feeling fear, anger, resentment, guilt, frustration, unworthiness, whatever. We have all been there. So, when the walls start closing in on you, raise your hand and TALK to us!!
