Checking in at the WTF Hotel

Another betrayed warrior allowed me to share her humorous analogy of what "year two" is like after discovering your husband's affair, as many find it to be even more difficult than the first year. It made me laugh out loud, which is refreshing when you consider the subject. Anyways, here it is:
Hello, and Welcome to Year Two. W are glad you are here. Let's take a tour, shall we?
Behind you, we have the Year One Hall of Hell. While you will never have to travel back there again, it will follow you for awhile and you will cast furtive glances towards it as it was a very dangerous place for you. Be mindful it is there, but don't turn back and travel down it again.
Ahead, you have The What the Fuck, Are you Serious, this Really Happened Hotel. The amenitites of this fine establishment include the Unnumbing Spa. Here, the general sense of disbelief you've held for the past year becomes an acceptance that what happened, happened, and can't be undone.

The WTF Hotel also features the Anger Gym and Who Am I Lounge which you will bounce between on occasion. Though the Drown Your Sorrows Bar is open 24/7 for emergencies, we advise you try and wait until noon (at least!) to stop in for your first round.

Outside the WTF Hotel lies The Plain of Lethal Flatness. Here, you won't give a shit about anything. You will generally be thinking "really? this is my life? serious? are you shitting me? I don't know what I want, who I want, and I certainly don't understand why I don't want any of it, but I don't."
Beyond the Plain lies something called Progress and Healing and Real Acceptance. Be patient. It appears you must spend your time in the Hotel and the Plain before you can journey further.

Eventually transportation will be provided. Don't ignore too many options for transport as you do not want to be stuck in either place for too long.
Thank you, and good luck on your journey.
