    How do you get over the fact

    that your husband has a female co worker that has a mouth like a pig and you have seen some inappropriate emails from her to him and another male co worker . He swears nothing is going on and admits emails were wrong .

    Sometimes I think I'm having a breakdown.

    The hurt overwhelms me and take over. My doctor put me on Prozac, but I guess it hasn't kicked in yet. I can't shake the depressed feelings I have and the stupid anxiety attacks are ridiculous.
