I've only been separated for 1 month. I'm having lots of trouble with "everyday" things....doctor's visits, dentist appointments, parent/teacher conferences, birthday parties, EVERYTHING!!!!! I know that because this is new, not many people know. I think I would rather stay in my house forever, than explain to one more person WHY I'm no longer married (which, by the way, is because he cheated on me several times with - apparently - several women, and gave me a disease). Believe ME - I don't tell everyone THAT story, but I do wind up having to tell receptionists that my husband no longer lives with me (for insurance reasons), and school guidance counselors to please keep an eye on my son, AND family and neighbors that I'm doing just fine (when I'm not), and it just seems to bring up those awful feelings again and again. SO - what can I do? Everyone who knows is very supportive, but it isn't helping! Any suggestions?
