I want to give all of your amazing women who have suffered from these FOO issues a huge hug. Dealing with infidelity is shitty on it's own, but with FOO baggage added to it, you are really strong women!


Daisy - not to say H doesnít deserve a dart or two, but Iíll give him credit for trying. Big hugs to you both. Two courageous people making it work.

Thank you, LH. He absolutely deserves a few darts, but I also give him credit for trying and putting my needs first. I always knew deep down inside, he is a good person. Speaking of FOO issues, he definitely has them. Raised by a single mom, who when he was 14 had another baby and he pretty much raised him as his son just as much as a brother. He was always taking care of somebody. The psycho has money and was the one who planned their trips. Basically she took care of him in the only one way I didn't.

Good morning ladies.

Ellie, good for you! I dont think I could handle the new "love" either!

Happy Halloween! Hope everyone has a good day!

cocoplus5nuts posted 10/31/2019 08:12 AM

Good for you, Ellie. I wouldn't want that in my house, either.

My mom couldn't be without a guy when I was younger and she had some real treats


My mom was the same. She dated the last man she had for over a decade, I think. He completely abandoned her when she got sick with pancreatic cancer. Couldn't even be bothered to see her one last time on her deathbed in the hospice facility. His excuse? He was afraid he would catch it! SMH!

My 15yo wore his spiderman costume to school today. I don't like it. It's a very tight bodysuit. It's too tight and revealing, if you know what I mean. You can easily see his junk pointing through it. He wore compression shorts underneath just for me.

Good morning ladies ..... or happy Halloween 🎃

Oh joy itís Thursday. I wonder what roller coaster ride will happen today. 🤔

Daisy - how do you handle the after math of an A when you know your WH has issues and you couldnít provide for that?

I find myself feeling some guilt around loving exwbf and knowing I couldnít satisfy his ďwhatever ď he was looking for. Not sure I can explain very well. But I think you know what Iím trying to say. Well, Iím sure everyone on this thread gets it.

See I think ex has serious FOO issues and is part of the problem. I didnít think people seek out A to solve their problems.

Oh well, the princess has lost her fairy tale and ended up with hot steamy shit.

Got another date the Peter on Sunday. I gotta say compared to my ex...this guy stays in contact. I would be lucky if I got a text a call from my ex. I did the bulk of initiating. Making me realize how much effort I put into the relationship with not much coming back.

The wake up call has been received universe.

Iím still really sad but so glad to be away from douchebag. Iím starting to feel liberation from his lack of everything, commitment, dedication and inconsistent love.

Just so you know Ellie - Iím so in love. Peter is my better half. He completes me. We were meant to fall in love.

Coco?

Did your son get his costume idea from his father?

EllieKMAS posted 10/31/2019 11:04 AM

LH - LMAO! Missy you had better be joking...

Coco - (about your mom's bf) There's no cure for stupid

And noooo... your DS doesn't need to be flashin the d all around

FOO issues... You know, I get that people have them. I honestly don't think anyone escapes childhood without some level of FOO issues. Some have it worse than others for sure, but everyone has their crosses to bear.

Just irritates me that cheaters and other shitty people do this crap and immediately throw out the 'FOO issues' card like that excuses it all away and you're not allowed to have a problem with it. Every shitty person I have known in my life from my dad on down has the "I had a crap childhood" narrative down pat.

I have FOO issues too, and I am not an asshole. Well..... I'll amend that to I AM an asshole when it is appropriate for me to be so. But I don't go through my life feeling like it owes me anything. And I try my level best to cause no harm if I can help it.

I am 'disgruntled' for Halloween. Headphones are on and just gonna do my best to avoid the annoying people today

This!!!!

I just read this today and it speaks volumes. It is allegedly attributed to Nikki Six. But is it kick ass true no matter who said it:

If you don't deal with your demons, they will deal with you, and it's going to hurt.

TX1995 posted 10/31/2019 12:11 PM

If you don't deal with your demons, they will deal with you, and it's going to hurt.

Amen. I think everyone has issues and some people for whatever reason, come up with healthier (or less harmful to self and other) coping mechanisms. For example, my medicators for anxiety and depression were isolation, playing games on my phone and reading. My WH's were flirting with people, drinking like a 21 years old, smoking weed and lying to me about it, and fucking his co-worker. Both "unhealthy" in their use, but mine were considerably less harmful to others and self.

I was listening to a podcast the other day and they commented that under the age of 12, ALL trauma is processed the same. From a pet's death to abuse. Obviously the abuse is usually ongoing and more harmful, but in the moment it would have the same effect. Later, the processing out of the trauma is what differentiates things. whether trauma was T or t. We obviously married people who no matter the trauma, were not healthy in their coping. Which blows for us.

Those of you who have gone through CSA, I am even more amazed at your resilience. SOS, bless your daughters for using their hurt to propel them, I'm sure as a parent, it is so difficult to not be able to just make it all go away for them. They are lucky to have your love and support.

It's a sunny (if not butt ass freezing cold) Halloween. No revealing costumes for my kids today - not allowed to wear at school. My 14 yo has some Post Malone temporary tattoos that we'll be putting on later. We are going to a party at a friend's. No costume for me, but beer and queso are more my speed anyways. Dressing up with WH is something we used to do, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth now as he sent a pic of himself in his costume to the cOWhore. (This was pre physical A and just in the EA that he didn't count as an EA then, though admits it now.)

I'm nervous about the weekend. Going through our fishbowl and I don't know what I'm expecting. I'm hoping I'll feel a little more closure on certain things. But I know I'll never know everything. I both want to forgive him and want to get divorced tomorrow so I can just not think about this shit anymore. It's such a mind fuck.

Happy Fucking Halloween ladies!

Good question. Itís something i am working on myself. And for myself, not just for him or our marriage. I am a very shy/quiet person. He always knew that so itís not something new. But i have been working on standing up for myself more and conquering some fears. I will never be a completely outgoing person but I know I do have things to work on and he has seen me grow in this aspect. One big issue he had was that he felt like he had to take care of me, as if i was another child. Especially on vacations. Hence why it meant so much to him that Psycho planned and took him out on these vacations (the only times they were together). He now realizes that I do so much at home, even if I am not the one who plans vacations. He realizes he took what I did do for granted. Like do you think he could name of our childrenís doctors?! Haha. .

Haha! No, my fch dresses up as a priest.


Yeah, everyone has FOO issues and childhood trauma. My fch didn't pull the FOO issues card. He has never said anything negative about his parents, his upbringing, or his childhood, although he has realized he's screwed up.

I don't feel guilty that I wasn't whatever he needed for that. I tried to get him to talk to me. I tried to get hom to get counseling. I asked his friends to talk to him. He always lied and said he was fine. That's on him, not me.

There is nothing inadequate about me. There was something wrong with him.

My fch did this, too. He'll make appointments and take the kids to the doctor if I ask him to, but he isn't proactive about it. He doesn't know anything about our Bill's or finances even though he has access to our bank account. He doesn't even know how much he gets paid! He didn't think I did anything of substance or import because I didn't bring home a paycheck.

cocoplus5nuts posted 10/31/2019 21:01 PM

It's me, again. Sorry.

My son said he got a lot of weird looks at school. Lots of people checking our his junk and butt. One boy stared at his butt, licked his lips, said, "Nice butt!", then ran off like Naruto. At least one teacher wouldn't even look at him.

I had my EMDR appointment today. I retold the story of Cheaterís cheating and lies.

She didnít do EMDR today, we will on Nov 12th.

She thinks it will help.

cocoplus5nuts posted 11/1/2019 06:51 AM

Love it, Ellie!

20years, how do you feel telling the story?

The reconciliation board is slow these days.

Coco, that is funny! Now he knows how girls feel when they get stares for their bodies!

Yes, absolutely! Whenever me being a stay-at-home-mom was mentioned, I reminded him of all the daycare costs I saved us. Plus, I breastfed both babies, no formula cost. That was my paycheck for the family!

sickofsurviving posted 11/1/2019 08:48 AM

Hi ladies. Hope everyone had a happy Halloween! I didn't have any trick or treaters. We are at the end of a street in new construction, so I wasnt surprised. Plus it kept the dogs from barking all night!

Ellie, I need that cup! Lol

20yrs the process starts, hey. Good luck with all of it. I think, sometimes, that any relief is better than none.

I was never lucky enough to be a SAHM, but I haven't "worked" in almost 9 years. Um...

TX, here are my cheaters answers to anything in that fishbowl 1) I dont know. 2) I don't remember. 3)Because I'm stupid. End of fishbowl. Hope you have better luck!

Happy Friday!

Coco,

When I retell the story, I feel bewildered. Like, how is this my life?

I donít lie, donít cheat, donít steal. I donít harm people.

I worked so hard to overcome the disadvantages of my childhood. I thought I married a good person.

But I didnít. Good people donít cheat

EllieKMAS posted 11/1/2019 10:57 AM

20yobs... What you said is so spot on. I feel ya!

I am so sorry that any of your WS's made any of you feel like you somehow had to justify your presence just because you didn't 'work'. Being a SAHM IS work! I'd like to see any of the H's do it and not have the house look like a tornado blew through...

20yrsagoBS posted 11/1/2019 11:16 AM

Iíve been a Registered Nurse for 25 years. I continued to work after having TWO strokes.

I work several jobs instead of sitting out on disability.

Why? Being married to a narcissistic Cheater has left me feeling like the regular rules society follows donít apply to me.

I had to relearn to walk, to use my left side, have PBA, and ongoing neurological fatigue.

I have to push through all of that to keep working so Cheater doesnít feel so much pressure to be a provider.

I want my throne, my pedestal, and riches cast upon my feet for what he put me through.

Itís complete bullshit
