These past two months have been horrible. My H has admitted to an EA. denies PA. I don't actually care. My first action was too file for D. The A - any type was a deal breaker for me. Then he had a serious car accident and has recovered well. He has done everything right since DDay and wanted to save our M. I was just emotionally dead. His stupid skank stalked me and I had to get a restraining order...
Two weeks ago my Mom died. I am just completely shattered at the moment.
I don't have the energy to deal with a D or my husband.
He has been absolutely supportive and wonderful. I still think he is a schmuck!
This week I don't have the energy to get out of bed- I booked off work for the first time since DDay.
I don't have the energy to do anything. All I want to do is be alone.
I don't even have the strength to continue with my D- H and I still live together.
I wish the world would end...

God Bless your Mom.

I hope that you can find some peace soon through your grief.

I am glad that your WH is at least behaving through this upheaval. 'Ol Schmuck better be waiting on you hand and foot!!

Take Care.

Im so sorry for your loss.

((((AStar)))) I'm sorry about the loss of your mother. I lost mine many years ago. And for months I kept wondering how the world was still here. Peace and strength to you.

God bless you and many hugs to you. Thank you for posting here as we all are supportive in your journey.

Sometimes life is just one big bullet pointed at you. I'm going through LOTS right now myself. Sometimes I'm on the floor crying out to God. Other times, I wonder how I made it another day.

I'm so sorry for your loss and all of the other devastating things you are going through.

Take good care of yourself. Emotionally and physically. If you need to hibernate for a couple of days, then do it, but try to go out for a walk or call a friend to help you pull out of your funk. It takes time, but there are good days and there are bad days. One day your good days will outnumber your bad days.

Are you in IC? It takes time to start feeling stronger.

Sending you hugs.

Thank you for the courage to admit the feeling. I have thought that same thought many times and never had the courage to say it out loud to anyone except my H.

You are very new at this and the ride has just started. The highs will come and the lows will also hit at the most puzzling times.

I once compared the time after dday to walking in a valley. Some run through as fast as they can just to get out and never look back. Others crawl through, absorbing every pain, looking down in the dirt as they drag along. I think I am walking slowly, looking at everything on the way, and once in a while, I have to walk backwards to look at something again before i move on again. The key is to make forward progress at your own pace, doing whatever you need to get through this and be as healthy as possible on the other side.

We are here to cheer you and cry with you wherever you are.

I'm so sorry about your Mom, your H, and life sucking in general right now.
I hope you have a good friend or relative to offer you comfort these next few months.
I understand too. One of my dearest friends found out she had terminal liver cancer about 3 weeks after DDay. She passed less than 2 months later. I was devastated. I hope with time and care you again be happy.

I am so sorry on the loss of your mom.
Right now you are getting hit with a lot of life. Keep your head up, do what you can, take care of yourself.

I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your mum AStar. Let your H carry the weight of the household duties right now - just let him support you as much as he can - you can decide what you want to do long term about your marriage once you feel a little stronger. For now, let him help and just try to concentrate on looking after yourself. (((Hugs)))

I am very sorry to hear about your mom. I lost my dad within a couple of months of finding out about my husband's infidelity. It just seems to be too much to bear at times.

I will be thinking of you and wishing for you peace and strength.

Take care of yourself!

(((((AStar))))) Sending you strength and comfort, honey. Hang in there.
