The never seeing the step grand children again and not getting to tell them goodbye. The total change in your whole life plan. The dealing with friends who really aren't your friends because they never told you he was cheating. The dealing with family or friends who have never been through anything like this who unintentionally say hurtful things.(The worst one was "At least someone wanted to marry you! No one ever asked me to marry them. You are lucky". Followed by their wining for 2 hours) You feel like you have failed even though you know you didn't do anything "wrong". You just had enough.
