In other words, we get bullied. And we let it...
This is JMHO so take it for what it's worth: Don't.do.it. : My ex and I separated when he had an emotional affair. He went on to date that same woman, and it fell apart for them. During this time ex was working out of town and was very lonely and missed dd and myself. After about fourteen months of separation, we reconciled. During the following two years, we married, bought a house, had another child. Then he had another emotional affair, which included...

Oh lord mama. BTDT - and I've got the emotional baggage to go with it. My ex put me through the.exact.same.painful.situation.

In my case, it became inconsequential because they broke up. The...
OMGosh this thread moved really fast! I've been working (shift work - I'm an RN) and I have five pages to go back and catch up on! My whine today is that I've lost my little book that has all the foods in it with the appointed values. That didn't take very long now, did it? I'm not sure what to do now. I hate the thought of buying another one! Anyway, it's been going well. I'm not doing meetings, just following the points and trying to get in some exercise each...
