My Husband abandoned the family. (as in all out, go to work, never come home ABANDONED). I had a pre-schooler and a newborn when he did this. We had been married a decade. Never. Saw. It. Coming.
He did come back for a few weeks after a brief stay at someone's
house. I am not sure why he came back- he said it was to try to work on things, but more likely, it was to get life in order before he really moved out.
The "friend" he was staying with ended up being an affair. DUH. I was so niave I actually believed he was staying on a buddy's couch. I told everyone how badly I felt for him
, you know, everyone thinks about the mom when you have a new child, poor hubby got forgotten, he has feelings too. Poor guy
That was several months ago. I have since gone to therapy, realized I am an enabler & hubby is a user, and filed for divorce.
I just need a friend. Anyone been though this hell and lived to tell the tale? I need someone to cheer me on and say, "Go Laurie Go!"
I know I can make it, I just need a posse LOL. No one I know IRL has ever been through anything like this...
