I haven't been here for a few days, had to take a hiatus due to work and major life changes. My children's father just called me a few days ago from the road (He's a truck driver) And informed me that he is leaving me for someone else. I have sat here fully faithful to this man, for the whole two years he has been on the road. He almost died a year and a half ago while on the road I hopped a plane to Kentucky and stayed with him a week there. He had a follow up surgery in May, I stayed with him in the hospital the whole couple weeks he was there and took care of him when he came home. I have done nothing to him but handle everything by myself...the work, the kids, the bills, the house. He was out of work from the surgery for 4 months. The last couple of months he started leaving every day. And every Saturday night he would leave and not come back until the next day. He guarded his phone like it was the Ark of the covenant and the ringer was always off. He spent our house payment money with nothing to show for it. I knew something was going on, but I couldn't prove it. It was eating me up. But, now I know. I haven't had the energy to walk and I have been ordering out every night because I haven't felt like cooking. When I got on the scale yesterday I expected to be back at my start weight. Amazingly I have lost 3 more pounds. I guess there's no better diet plan than Stress-A-Trim,lol. But it was just enough push to get me back on my game. So here I am.

    Stay strong, stay focused, and embrace your real priorities now. You have Sparks in your children. I know it's tough. I've been there. It sucks. But we become stronger and wiser when the dust has settled. Thanks for sharing. Remember you're never alone on this journey!

    so sorry for your situation, it is going to be a tough time for you but so glad that you are back with us. Take the time you need but do not let him get to you so that you forget about taking care of yourself. Do not let him control that.

    Ah jeez, some people just suck. It may not feel like it now, but you will be so better off without him. Just take care of yourself and your kids, they're going to be going through a lot too. At least now you know that when you suspected something was going on that you're not crazy. When something similar happened to me, I thought I was nuts, what was wrong with me that I suspected him so much without any proof? Well, I was right and you were too.

    I hope you can push through this and rely on your support system. It'll be tough, but you'll be better than ever when you come out the other side. emoticon
