Our expert says:
To me, any really good treatment program for this sort of disorder MUST include some sessions for spouse and family, to deal with exactly the sort of issues you describe here. And to specifically help you deal with them when they arise.
OK, so you can see them as an aspect of the disorders you laboured under, but the fact is you DID deceive him, successfully, for some years, so he really DOESN'T know what was true and what was not. You need to again earn his trust by being trustworthy, and sharing open discussions about what's going on, so he can be on the same page from now on. Too catastrophic a response to an understandable even if factually unfair criticism, doesn't help you.
No simple program that then dumps you on your own is competent treatment - surely you are still seeing a shrink to work on the task of remaining well and getting weller ? Discuss this with him. A CBT-type approach should be being used, to prevent and stop the pain you now feel ( but really don't have to feel ), raher than learning to "hide" it as you describe doing. Hiding your pain is a different way of being false, to yourself and to your husband. And disappearing would be an act of massive cruelty to him and to yourself. Work with a therapist.
