Hi Everyone ! I'm having a couple rough weeks, but doing well. Today I responded to a blog in the attempt to help and to support someone, at the beginning of a separation, during their struggle. And till the end of my reply, I realized the blog had helped me...... So I thought I would share my response. First of all I congratulate you for posting this blog for two reasons. #1 SP/SF are so wonderful, caring, and always their to support you. #2 I'm on my 3rd week of separation after 17 yrs of marriage. My kids are grown and on their own. And I always used that excuse for not taking the time for myself. I also started loosing weight, advancing at my work. To go home to criticism after a long day at work, cleaning the house,laundry, and making dinner it started to hurt me emotionally/mentally. It was the hardest thing I ever did. But also the best decision for me. I can tell you after 3weeks I still have days that I'm thinking, is he taking care of himself, is the house being taking care of, does he have clean clothes. Then theirs days I have to giggle and say to myself, Who cares if he has clean socks and underwear! he he he I CAN SAY THAT I'M HAPPY WITH MYSELF !!!! And that's what matters..... So Thank you for posting! And hang in there... I am !!!
