Mom - she has ALS and is bed bound, can't speak, can't move on her own, but she can still move her mouth. She can't talked because she is on a ventilator, so I have to read her lips. She's been awesome. She's listened to me, and given me advice that I treasure. Her first husband left her for another woman completely out of the blue. He just walked in one day and said "This is OW, I'm going to California with her." She understands what I'm going through.
Dad - he's been an asshole most of my life. But, he has shown compassion through this that I didn't even know he was capable of showing. For the first time during my 29+ years on this planet, he told me that he cared about me and wanted me to be happy. Maybe that's part of the silver lining to all of this.
Aunt - rock star. She's listened to me hash things out for hours on end. She's just been awesome, and calls everyday to check on me if I don't call her first.
Sister - pissed at my WW. She has her own life and is busy, but she checks in.
Best friend - he told me to leave my WW in college after she cheated on me one summer break. I should have listened to him then. He has never one time said "I told you so." He's given me sound advice as well. He's been here before to. His long time, live-in GF bought a new car and the salesman at the same time. So, he understands. But, I can tell he's getting a little tired of hearing about it. Not in a mean way, but in a "I'm not going to stand around and watch my best friend get hurt again because he won't pull his head out of his ass". He's been my best friend since we were 2, and I expect we'll be best friends for the rest of our lives.
Other friends of mine - I haven't gone into a lot of detail with them. The guys in the office know because I wanted them to be aware of why I was preoccupied most of the time. Bible study group has been praying for us, but I haven't told them all the details. Truthfully, I don't think most of them really know what to say because it hasn't really happened to them.
Mutual friends - they've stayed out of it. I told some of them that my WW "would not stop talking to OM". I'm starting to find out who was my friend and who was her friend. One couple that I thought were my friends too, invited WW and OM to a SMALL Super bowl party at their house.
Her family - buried their head in the sand because WW "would never do that". She can keep them.
Her brother - also a cheat. Had the audacity to take me to lunch and question me about being a bad husband, was WW really having an A, and told me what I needed to do to win her back. Then, a few weeks later I find out he has been cheating on his wife for years with multiple OW. What a hypocrite.
SIL - nice to talk to because we can relate. She knows I feel, and visa versa. She is in the middle of a D right now to for obvious reasons stated above. She found out in September, and then sent a text to everyone in her phone letting them know.
One thing that an A will show you is who your true friends are. That's for sure.
