I certainly hope she didn't wash those Tylenol PM's down with any liquor, if she did, she may have to go shopping for a new liver. People use Tylenol as an "Attention Seeking" attempt of suicide, unfortunately they often don't know the real risk of the damage the combo of that with liquor does to the liver. I have seen it kill several young people.
On the other hand the stuff they give to bind with the Tylenol is awful it's called mucomist, and we in the medical profession call it pukomist, it smell of sulfur, and she will have to drink it every 4 hours.
Now I see this as a total self serving, attention seeking thing. Her parents may not be successful in obtaining a stay for her, if she is alert and oriented, and able to make her own choices, the burden falls to her parents to prove she is a danger to herself or others prior to this, and they have to give specific examples.
Anyway. Stay strong. Protect yourself and your daughter.
WS has been transferred via ambulance to a psychiatric hospital, so I'm guessing she was at least "playing along" with going. Funny thing is, I would have never even told my closest friends or relatives about this before DDay. Now I don't give a crap.
Most people are surprised that acetaminophen is very toxic to the liver, and it's one of those things that take the bare minimum necessary pills. REally easy to get too much, especially if you are also on some OTC cold/flu medication.*
*ps-not a doctor nor in medical profession, but I've had experience.
I sent you a PM.
I can understand being alone; but I hate being with someone and feeling lonely.
I'm at home with my DD. She is sleeping peacefully in the next room. My two Bichon Frise's are taking up 3/4 of a queen size bed. And my WW is in a psychiatric hospital for the next 2 days at least.
Infidelity certainly skews the perception of "the good life."
Enjoy your time with your little angel. Oh and those 2 mean little white dogs.....Slight T/J
We had a bichon dropped at our front door many years ago, and he was mean as hell. He bit me more times than I could count in the 2 weeks it took us to find him a new home. He had a name, but we ended up calling him mean little white dog. So now when I see or think of a Bichon, that's what comes to mind. I'm sure yours are cute as buttons, and sweet. Just a scar on my psyche that a dog didn't love me.
Finally hitting me. Calling potential daycare providers, calling attorney's office (hopefully I'll hear back from one of her partners today, but it's the first day of spring break in this area and there are probably either getting ready or already left with their families....)
A visitation at the hospital is Sat. MIL wants to take DD to see WW. WW has not been in any contact with me since our phone conversation on Wed. night.
And so I'm pissed I'm spending my time dealing with this shit.
Many of you were right, and if I had followed your advice, I would be nearing the end of the 6 month mandatory cooling off period, instead, I'll just be starting it.
Hang in there. I'm not a lawyer, but it would seem that attempting to commit suicide with her daughter present would hurt her attempts at custody because she was not thinking about DD's welfare. Hopefully, her parents will back you in court about getting custody.
Furious1 is spot on, armchair advice is so easy to dispense. You did your best, gave her every chance; you should have no guilty feelings about your efforts to save this marriage.
I have an IC tonight and will go over what to expect at the meeting tomorrow. My WW is being treated for bipolar disorder. One thing that worries me is that everyone (WW, inlaws, anyone else) would brush these events off as "oh, she was bipolar so it's ok/understandable and BS, you should just accept what happened because bipolar disorder is terrrible and sometimes this is what happens." Fuck that noise.
Bottom line is this. She will basically have to move heaven and earth to convince me NOT to file for divorce, NOT to go for full custody, NOT to fucking destroy her in open court if necessary to get what I want.

Quite honestly, there is absolutely no reason for you not to file. There will never be a *better*, more advantageous time for you to file. Cold hearted? Nope, pragmatic.
You can always put a halt to it or re-marry.

Absolutely correct. No free passes given here.
I agree with 5454. If there was ever a chance to make a strong move for the sake of your children...and your own sanity...then this would be it.
Remember, you can always stop the process down the road. Hell, if your WW ever gets her shit together, you can reconcile AFTER a divorce...if it goes that far.

Heading for D
I hope the light in the distance will grow ever brighter and that peace and happiness return to your life.
What would concern me would be if there is any paternity issue that your WW may try to exploit when/if it comes down to a custody fight. Your lawyer may need to take a totally different angle if your daughter is OM's vs. yours.
It's a terrible thing to think about but unfortunately, I wouldn't put it past the behavior your WW has exhibited and it would be tragic if you lost custody your daughter.
MediumRare-every single attorney I consulted on phone and spoke in their office all said that in the eyes of the court, she is my daughter. At this point it paternity doesn't matter. For me it is a needless expense and to be honest, I don't even care. She is mine and I love her with all my heart, no matter the DNA.
