Hug sorry he's being a douche.

I didn't get anything from my husband, either. A letter would have sufficed. I really shouldn't be complaining, though, because I didn't get him a damn thing either. My little boy had a great Christmas, though.

I'm upstairs "sleeping" while the in laws are socializing. After 1 hour of sleep today, 3 hours each day for the previous three days, I'm having trouble maintaining a positive countenance. I could barely eat when I realized I likely wouldn't be a member of this family next year and that they'll very likely hate me. I actually like my in-laws. Functional, warm, loving families do exist, but they're not mine to keep. Sadcryface

That's the problem with "nights". They are "civilized", but not healthy. With all your experience and expertise, you need to find yourself a "good job". You've paid your dues. Over and over. There is a wise doc in our system, (who,.. while very religious, I really like ... he took on the Cards establishment to great risk to himself, and came out the winner), and he says "nights are ok for a short while, but "if you're. my patient no ... no, no. no,". There HAS to be a Quality or Joint Commission job for you. You could very easily get an MS or MA (online) degree, and make the $$ you need to support yourself.

Reminds me of a girl I know named Stephanie. Know her, her sister, and mom. Stephanie had this male friend she would hang around a lot. Saw her around town many times. One day I ask the mom, are they dating or what? She says, "We just don't know. They swear they're just friends." I ask Stephanie. Same thing. I ask him. Same thing.

One day they're hanging around. I talk to them give her my phone number, and ask her to call me. Couple days later the mom tells me that he suddenly asks her to marry him. I tell her what happened, and she laughs & says they were wondering why he asked after so long. I tell her, you're welcome, but if he hadn't I was going to ask her out. Smile

RE: The Whispering Thread
Husband is out tonight. He woke me up before he left and asked if I was ok. "Define ok." "Surviving." "Then I'm ok." He just held me and let me cry.

I know I'm not ready to find anyone right now, but the prospect of never finding someone terrifies me. I know I make it difficult to love me, how else would I have lost him?

Not what you did or didn't do, more like what he apparently couldn't or wouldn't do. There is no such thing as falling out of love. It doesn't happen.

But you said you were not really in love. Don't forget that. Respect comes first. I think you respect yourself, That's first. Then your potential partner. From what I've seen here you're gonna have em beating down your door in droves. When it rains it pours, is usually the problem, not never finding anyone. You're gonna have too many to chose from. Mark my words. THAT is going to be your problem, not the dearth. Tongue

You are smart, educated, beautiful, funny as hell - you won't be alone for long. You are going to be fine - just realize that time heals - there hasn't been enough time gone by yet. Take care of you, the rest will take care of itself.

Don’t be in a rush, take your time. Better to be lonely than in bad company. It will happen when you aren’t looking, it usually does. Hug

Sorry, not whispering for this... whatever happened it was NOT because you make it difficult to love you. People change and relationships end and that sucks but you have no right to shoulder all of the blame for that happening. You are obviously an intelligent, capable person and if/when you are ready to find somebody else you will.
