How awful. I didn't know that was possible!
I hadn't heard of it, but I looked it up and now I want to read it.
We were not in quite the same situation, but I met my husband online and we lived 2 hours apart for the first two years of our relationship (most of that time we were engaged). I certainly think long distance relationships can work. We wrote a lot of emails. We just celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary (15th anniversary of when we met). Best wishes!
I live on 1/3 acre in a suburb of a small city right now, but I look back fondly at the pre-parenting days my husband and I lived in a city apartment and walked everywhere.
I'm a part of this tribe!

I have only had time to read a few posts of this thread, but I wanted to say hi and sub to make sure I don't lose it. To answer the recent question: I like roller coasters. I hate scary movies.

I keep junk from accumulating by clearing it away daily.
oops, double post
I don't know much about PPD but I definitely experienced huge hormonal changes that affected my thoughts and feelings every time I got pregnant and had a baby. My husband missed me more and more over the years. Thankfully he was as understanding as he could be, and didn't push me. Now, after 8 years since the birth of our first child, our youngest is 2.5 and I'm feeling like I've passed through to the other side of a sort of cloud and I can think bigger now, not just...
I started a homeschool group that meets at least once a week. And my kids take classes such as gymnastics and art. Then there are the arranged playdates and the neighborhood friends. As an introvert, I am amazed at how my extrovert daughter can come home from a long outing with our homeschool group and then ask to go visit her neighbor friends and THEN she wants to call someone on the phone... whew!
