  • Spoke to my lawyer today, she's finally been able to get stbx's lawyer on the phone. The long and short of it is that I have to be VERY nice to stbx, I can only do things that will enable him to feel empowered and part of the process. We need to get the Money Pit house finished and on the market asap, and we want him to do a few tasks himself that otherwise would be costly to hire out, and...
  • Hi all,My name is Giorgio. Technically, I have been a DS member for over 6 years, but I haven't logged on since DailyStrength updated their site. So, it's been a while for me.Anyway, my girlfriend of a whole a year and I broke up two weeks ago. Our relationship had a lot of ups and downs over the last two months because of her attitude toward me in late June. Six days after our breakup, I sent...

    Starting a divorce

    3
    My husband and I have been married for just a little over two years. We have a 15 month old little girl. Back in May, I found out that my husband has been using porn while I am been home taking care of our girl since I got pregnant, and lying and hiding it from me even though I had told him previously that I didn't want that in our relationship. Since that initial confrontation, he has been lying...
  • Hello-I am new to this group. I'm looking for support. Long story short, been married 9 years. Had enough. Questioning emotial abuse and or control issues. (He never called me names or anything, but was very good at telling me what I was bad at, always has an angry annoyed tone, blames me for everything, takes no responsbility, has HUGE mommy issues, I could go on and on). I have emotionally...
  • I wanted to be married to him my whole life but its time that I open my heart and my eyes that I can no longer be a doormat. I have to accept that maybe he does love me just not like he should have. He took advantage of my trust, my heart, and my love. I really wanted to stay married to him my whole life but the cost is too high, this is my life. I only have one life and at my judgement day I...

    Anyone want to slap box?

    I’m angry today. I don’t really know why. I can’t put my finger on what is fueling my anger. All I can tell you is that there is a great deal of darkness is my spirit. I guess its part of the healing process? If yes, I hope this stage doesn’t linger long. I pray I don't become bitter.I keep telling myself that what he’s doing doesn’t matter to me. I keep...

    We just had our joint therapy session. I gotta say Im feeling ok about what went down. Weve agreed to seperate for now. Im thinking that it will lead to divorce and at this point im not even sure I would want to avoid that. Ive been thinking a lot about seperating and I feel suprisingly good about it, almost excited. She had a few over the top not exactly true statements that mad me a little...

    Tough Day

    Today has been incerdibly tough. After the stunt she pulled last night I got almost no sleep, had to get up at 5 to go to work, got off at 11am and came home to babysit 6 kids (4 are mine). I really thought I was going to be able to hang on to the anger a lot longer than I did. When she got home I couldnt stand to talk to her but after she came in the bedroom to get her night clothes and left...

    Mommy Dearest

    My mother just called me, which is probably the last thing I need after yesterday. I grew up in an abusive home with what I am discovering now is a narcissistic mother. She didn't like me as a kid or a teenager or when I was in my 20s. She was very hard on all of us and I think the paths our lives have taken shows that. When I met stbx, she ADORED him because he was well educated, good...

    New Experience for Me

    I've been clean and sober 7 years as of July 27th. This is my first "break up" while in sobriety and I can totally understand why I self soothed in the past.I value my sobriety and have no intention of using..one day at a time.What I'm wondering is this. Is this an especially difficult "break up" or does it just seem that way because I can actually feel because I'm clean and sober?Also, I've...

    Feeling worried

    So I told him at the beginning of this month that he needs to buy me out before I moved, which is this Sunday. Of course he sat on it until last week and now the bank is telling him that there's escrow and it won't be done by the end of this month but he doesn't know how long. He was supposed to pay me my half of equity as well as a lump sum support payment.I'm worried because he is having a lot...

    Meeting DISASTER

    So we had our first meeting today ... all of the attorneys and us. I was feeling pretty confident when I got there. That should have been a warning. Any time I feel that way, things go badly. Basically what happened was his attorneys raked me over the coals for an hour, nitpicking every little financial item on my discovery like I was hiding a billion dollars in a Swiss bank account. At one...
  • It's more than a simple story of him leaving me, but I can't seem to get him out my head. I think about him constantly. I am suffering with feelings of loss. I had a really good plan going to accept and move on, but my therapist said it was making me supress my pain instead of feeling it. So I quit my plan of meditation and personal development activities to feel the pain. But instead I feel like...

    Second time writing this because I lost the first one..I had an interview which forced me to get up..moving around and out of the house. It was a welcomed distraction. I want to find balance between grieving and getting on with my life. I have a tendancey to either be very busy or do nothing when I'm in the middle of an emotional crisis. Neither are good nor healthy for me.
