Some of you may remember me and my story from 11/07 to all of 2008. My exH had an affair while working in NO,La and ran like a coward when I found out~through our daughter as she found the OW's numbers in his cell.

I remember your story very vividly. I wondered, worried and prayed for you often after you stopped posting.

Hi GWT! Glad to hear from you and that you are doing well!! It is definitely better isn't it?;) My ex-- King Turd-- was hit pretty hard by the karma bus too. He lost his job, his home, had a massive heart attack and a quad bypass and now is living with/sponging off of GF #5 since our separation, about the same time as yours.

I am glad to hear your met someone wonderful:) If I learned anything from this experience that is I am so MUCH stronger than I ever imagined I could be. I know you are too.

I hope you continue to post and pass on your no nonsense advice that helped me in the beginning. I love your wit and you tell it like it is.

take care GWT!

you my dear friend are and will continue to be invaluable to any/all women who find themselves in the situation of being a betrayed spouse.

it is so good to see you back here, offering up such good/great advice from someone who has been there.

you, unlike me, are of the new generation of wives - you know - that do not stand by and allow their husbands to lie to them, with a straight face, and get away with the disrespect.

i know how difficult it was for you to come to your decision - yet you valued and loved yourself enough to say THRU ACTION - HELL NO, I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANY LONGER.

you are living proof that life does go on, that the tears do not last forever, but most importantly that self love is imperative to ones own preservation.

while we have never met i continue to value you as one of my dearest friends.

i still smile when i think of the posts that many of us shared back then - remember - our dream to all live in the same cul d sac. what fun we would have. what laughter we would have shared. what strength we would have drawn from each other.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO POST - your wisdom, your insight, your strength, your caring nature is much needed when others find themselves in this position.

love ya,

It felt to me like your DH "gave up" awfully easily, and to me that means he already had splitting up in his head.

I've told you before but I'll say it again: YOU were one of my greatest support systems and helped me as much if not more than my friends and family here.
