Bonnie is an intelligent, well-educated woman of 42, living in Houston Texas with her high profile husband and two children. She had a great job as a copywriter until the newspaper she worked for went belly up and now she is a receptionist at a Medical building for psychologists. Overly qualified, but earning enough to help out. Bonnie is suspicious; thinks her husband is unfaithful.
She wants to quit her job, but is fearful. She has goals about her work, family and marriage but is confused and feels stumped.
Her inner dialogue goes something like this: “You should leave him. Look at Jill, how she fawns over him. I’d hate it if I found out they were having an affair behind my back.”
Then another voice pops up inside her: “You’re not hopeless, you’ve got your job, you’ve got your home, and you’ve got your children. Okay, there’s no sex, I mean, very little.”
