I am preparing for my husband to leave and am anticipating being very lonely. I am anxious and the kids are sensing it. I have revolved my entire life around my little family unit so his absence at night has been very hard. He's been spending time out at night before he leaves to get the kids used to his absence before he actually moves out. I'm so upset-- didn't think I'd be!
Anyhow... before he actually leaves I would like to "get it together" for the kids sake. It will be hard for them and I need to find some friends for us in a similar situation. Need some support. Cant talk to mom-- she's in denial. Keeps acting like I didn't tell her we are breaking up after the holidays. Cant talk to sister 1, cuz I just can't. Can't talk to sister 2 because I told her what's going on and she used the situation to back me into a corner on something she needed from me, work related, that i didn't want to do and she actually said "I don't think you're in any position to turn down work". Uggg - how sensitive! I will miss my husband. He is my only friend and the only one I have to talk to.
We are separating because I lost ALL sex drive after I went into menopause 4 years ago - went through the motions for a while anyway, and eventually had to cut him off completely 9 mths ago b/c I just couldn't do it anymore. Well, understandably, he has found someone else. Has not acted on it yet, but there is "a coal on the iron" so to speak. I have given him the OK to date her in the meantime (but I am having a very HARD time with that -- I feel sick to my stomach every time he goes out. He hasnt gone out with her yet, but I know the night will come when he does. That's gonna be a doozy!) He plans to leave in February, after my son's bday. We want them to have one more year of normal holidays and bdays.
Anyhow... i strayed off subject. Really feel like we could use a support group. Would love something we could all do together... where my kids could meet other kids in the same boat so they don't feel like the only ones in the situation. Strangely I have been unable to find any such thing on google. I would think this would be something alot of women need. Its all internet dating for single moms! Good luck to me finding someone who wants to date but not have sex!!!
Anybody know of any groups- would be really helpful.
