The Question


I'm 38, married and went through a very tough time for 19 months. I was diagnosed with PTSD. A married man visited me every two weeks or so, and we became very close. Too close. And now I am feeling very angry for letting it happen. I am wondering whether he is going through mid-life crisis as I feel this would not have happend if he wasn't. Also, if I wasn't at a vulnerable stage it certainly wouldn't have happened.

Noel's response

It is possible that he is in a midlife transition, but it is also possible the two of you just let yourselves get too close. This often happens when one person, as you mention, is very vulnerable emotionally.
