Thank you if you are taking the time to read this. The first thing I want to say(and this is of no offense to those who took the time to try to help me), but please do not PM me if you are a female. I appreciate it a lot, but I cannot take any chances when interacting with women. I have feelings that are beyond my control and am not in a good place to be PMing any women. Thank you.
I am still giving my wife her space. It is difficult on her, so I am considering leaving to my parent's house for a week. I also got a book and workbook to work on my sexual addiction from home on my own. I am not putting a lot of hope in it to cure me because that's basically impossible, but I am sure it will do me wonders to understand and control myself. Thank you all.

Josh, as someone with a WHOLE LOT of similarities to your story, I will make a suggestion. Addiction work on your own is a lot like “thinking about fixing your car.” If you are in any form of addiction, there is a critical step in accepting the help of a group. The realization that you are not “incurably unique” does wonders for the ability to overcome shame and the compulsion to hide shortcomings that are often inevitably apparent.
I’ll send you a PM (good realization on your limitations BTW) with some additional thoughts.
