I moved out today. I'm sitting in a parking lot waiting for my room to be ready. She was there. She had some things of mine I needed to get. We talked a bit. We cried together. She said she was sorry. I said I don't care. We had a long hug. She told me she would miss me. I bit my tongue. I'll likely never see her again. And to top it off her sister is at the shopping center I stopped in. I waved, she drove off. Whole family of cowards. Rough day. I'm meeting some friends for drinks later. I'm getting by. Thanks for all of your support and well wishes.

Sending you good thoughts and prayers for peace and happiness.


Walk away from anything or anyone who takes away your joy. Life is too short to put up with fools.

As hard as it is to let go and leave, you have taken the first step towards a better situation for you. I'll be the first to say that it is hard. You're on a different rollercoaster now. The difference is you decide where you go and when you are ready to get off the ride. You won't know that for awhile, you'll feel all out of control. You will gain control again and then you will fly.

I have a very peaceful mental image of you floating in the gulf, at one with the waves & the seagulls, staring at the sky and pondering the future you can create for yourself.

Walking away is the most emotionally draining experience. Yet its also the best thing you can do for yourself. You have overcome the biggest hurdle by leaving. Now you have to finish the race. Your going to experience many emotions in the next few months. Its imperative you have a support system set up. Friends, family, professionals are all needed to get through this time. I'm not going to sugar coat anything. This will most likely be your loneliest and saddest period. But you will also grow stronger with each day without the constant reminder of the A in your face. Cry if you need to, go to the gym and beat the shit out of a heavy bag. Whatever works for you. It might be a good time to take some time off from work to collect your thoughts. Your not going to be able function there anyways. But use this time to heal and grow. In a short time you will feel better about yourself and the decision you made. Good luck my friend. Keep us posted on how your doing. If you need anything, just PM me. Even if its just to talk. Hang in there bro.

Thank you all. I went out with some friends for a while. Had a great time. Anxiety is pretty high today. I'm breathing deeply. Reaching out. Praying. Going to take it easy this week. Off work. I have a list of stuff I would like to accomplish but if I don't get to it so be it.
