I am not sure if this belongs here.
It is both grief and loss.

Yesterday am dh dropped ds and I off at my mothers yard sale.
He said he'd be back at 12 to pick us up...we'd go yardsaling.
123o rolls around, I call his cell...it says, this # is no longer a working #.
I thought that was weird.
So, ds 19 months and I get a ride back to our house.
He took all of his clothing, his whole book shelf...but, not all his books...
some posters but, not all his pictures...he didn't take his pillow or favorite blanket.
????????????????????
I am in SHOCK!
Not even a note or any money.
And the rent is due...
Friday night he held me all night, tight...and made love to me.
We went out to eat with ds & had a fun time, joking ect.

I am deistated.
Why WOULD HE DO THIS?
How could he leave ds?
ds calls him daddy and right now he keeps saying it.

I am having a nervous breakdown.
I am a sahm.
WHY?

I am so devestated.....
I feel like selling what is mine and leaving.
I can't stay in that house.
It seems so lonely!
Doesn't he even want to see the baby grow up?
I don't understand.

That's terrible! Does he have a job or relatives around so you can at least find out what's going on and get some financial support??

Good luck to you and your little one.

wow. yes mama, even if he freaks out and can't do this anymore, he is legally required to financially support his child.

i truly hope you will have great amounts of real life support.

Yes, you can get support but if you don't have funds for a lawyer try to contact Legal Aid service in your area for help.(they help pro bono).

I will keep you in thought and prays....he probably don't deserve you anyway. This is a sad day for you but each day that goes by it get mor happier and better, that he become almost forgotten to you.

Momma, I'm so, so sorry this happened to you and ds. Could Dh be having an emotional breakdown? Is he depressed? Any legal reasons why he skipped out??

I hope you have friends/family IRL who can give you support at this time. Please be strong for your ds. My thoughts are with you. Please keep us posted.

I don't even know what to say. I am saddened and in disbelief. Know that he must be in such a dark hole right now and obviously, he doesn't see that there can be light in such darkness.

Contact his parents, WIC, the bank, your church/temple (if you have one) and explain your situation. I hope friends, family and your community can help. Please know that we are here for you to listen and support you.

Much Love & Hugs~

Are you sure he's ok and not in danger or in need of help? Of course, it doesn't make what happened to you any better, but it sounds.. weird? Scary? Something more? If he left you straight out- just abandoned- that's one thing (and totally his fault!), but it sounds more like... he's in trouble or maybe in need of help...?

Yes, it all sounds very strange. mama. I hope you reach out and get all the help you need. I am sure there are people here who can help point you in the right direction, if you aren't sure where to turn. Maybe there is someone local to you here. I am in Australia, so I don't think that helps much.

I hope this all get straightened out soon, and that your dh is okay, even if he willfully left. Stay strong.

I couldn't read and not respond. If you were near me (in MD) we'd be taking care of you now. We dont' have much, but it takes a village, right? Please find your tribe here and see who can help. Where are you located? Maybe I can help you find resources.

And.. I feel like doing this:

Hope you feel better and get some answers soon.
