This is my first time posting in any forum. I'll admit it feels a bit awkward. My husband is leaving me. This was a complete shock. We had a good relationship, life and family. He says he still has feelings for me, still finds me attractive and still likes me and enjoys spending time with me. He also says he wasn't unhappy in our life together.... just that he hasn't been happy. Also, he has began talking to an ex and still loves her. I don't know how to feel about this. Personally, I believe that if you are not happy you look inside your home to find it and not outside your marriage. I seem to be in the minority on this issue. Regardless of the reasons , this is happening. So, here I am,,,, I have been a stay at home mom for 2 years. I have no job, no relationship and am 3000 miles from my family and anyone who cares about me first. Now what? I am looking for a job and saving to get our daughter and I an apartment. We are in limbo. We are trying to be friends which is hard when he is seeing someone else while we are still living together. I feel alone, homeless and worthless, some days. Other days, I feel angry, empowered and stubborn. I'm sure all this is normal but it isn't for me. The one thing I always counted on in this life was my marriage. I am trying very hard to act with class and dignity. I don't hate him. I don't want to hate him. This is obviously something he is going through in his own head and life. I feel like even though it may seem like I am being too compliant, it is worth it in the long run. If I can take more emotional bombardment now so in the future we can be civil for our daughter in the future then it is worth it. I know I have to move on. I just don't really know how to do that. I am happy for any advice you guys may have. Thanks.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
