The good news and the bad news

The good news is that the lump in my breast is a cyst and not anything life threatening. That is one less thing i really didn’t need on my plate. Thank-you, God.

The bad news?

My marriage and mental health is rapidly fraying. It seems they are related. I guess this is part of the risk in letting your whole world revolve around your family. 

It really does feel like the end of the world.

My world.

  1. I’m so so sorry.  I don’t know you well, but I know you well enough that you are a phenomenal mother and you don’t deserve this… My heart is breaking for you.  It upsets me terribly that your husband doesn’t recognize how amazing you are and treat you the way you deserve to be treated.  I love you baby, and I know there isn’t much I can do for you, but please know that you have my emotional support!

  2. Love you, Steph.
    Uh, do you have a cell phone? Stupid question, I know, but don’t most cell phones get free long distance? (we don’t have one, we’re the only americans w/o one!) If you do and you want an ear to vent to, I’ll e-mail you my home number. Let me know, k?

  3. I think you already know that you’ve done almost every single thing in your power to fix your marriage. We both know its time for hubby to do his part now. The cycle has to STOP. You don’t deserve this crap. He has to change or its going to have to end. You can’t keep letting your heart get torn apart by him. You are supposed to be able to count on your family, you are supposed to be happy that your life revolves around it. When it starts making you feel the way you do now, its time for some serious changes.

  4. glad the boobs are okay. sorry about the marriage. i’ve been there, and lower. we’ve had the separation, and then the lawyers, and the D word out there, just months away. then, something just broke, and life changed. you never know what’s gonna happen. but i will say this, if you feel you need to walk away for him to appriciate you, do it. stand up for yourself. it took my husband over a year to realize he had left his wife and children for a meaningless life, but he figured it out. you’ve had some good times, i’ve read them, and envied your happiness. hopefully those can pull you through this.
    hang in there. i sure hope it all works out. my heart aches for you.
