This one is alternatively titled "That Time We Tried to Answer a Listener's Letter But Fought Instead." Oops.
The letter writer is frustrated that her attempts at self-care, including sobriety, are only making her feel edgy, unstable and unjustifiably angry with her husband. Why does it look and feel more like a fight than a spiritual, loving journey?
We tried hard to bring some perspective -- and maybe, partially succeed in doing so -- but mostly we just have it out in the end.
