Yes, the crickets are chirping loudly.
This happens here too and we end up going without. Only twice in a year and a half I ever asked and it was four weeks with nothing and I got bit for it.
So I write it down somewhere and don't show anyone but L. I keep a record of it, what comes and what doesn't and it's adding up as well, though not as much as yours.
I honestly wouldn't even bother communicaating with your ExH if you can help it in re. to the money, even though it's awful to go without.
FWIW, there's a lot of pride in being ablt to not mention it, also. And when lies come, what good has an altercation done, even more?
FWIW again, it's been a really hard lesson for me to adapt to Perv not being my "go to" person, even when it's things that should be cut, dry and obvious.
I also think the financial support could be kind of like dealing with children and coparenting, where it is used as a tool to hurt another person, almost like the idea of control or something. I don't know if that makes sense, it's just an idea for why be nasty.Ashland 13
