Thanks a lot F1Pilot (and everyone else again).
She has been going to church lately (often with me accompanying her, although I am protestant and she is catholic; the church is catholic).
I don't go to church myself anymore (used to go every week), because I like to worship on my own (i.e. I believe strongly in God all week long, not just Sundays... and I pray a lot, but I don't feel it necessary to do it in church, not that I have anything at all against the church; I just haven't felt the need to go there to show and feel my faith).
Regarding counseling, I haven't mentioned it. I did ask her if she had ever sought therapy for the trauma she suffered on 9/11/01 (sdhe saw people jumping out of the WTC).
Part of the problem is money (she quit her job a few months ago due to stress etc.), but she also doesn't really believe in therapists.
Counseling is a bit different though, so I could mention it.
I will see how tomorrow goes. I might mention it at that point.
Thanks a lot for your support!!!!
PS: There is a lot going on, but I feel it is probably inappropriate to discuss all the personal details here, especially since you don't get to hear her side of things.
