So I officially left my husband and I have learned more things he has lied about. Definitely not going to work out. I am currently living with my mom in a small apartment until I get back on my feet. It's hard moving back after having my house run my way. Anyways the kids got sick and then my uncle passed away. I have lost two uncles in the past 5 months. My grandmother is not doing well either. It's not looking like a promising year. I guess I can only make the best of it.

I'm so sorry.

But it is early 08 and you never know. Take one day at a time.

Karen's right - it's early yet. Things could turn themselves around. Remember, sometimes those clouds have silver linings.

I have been in similar situations and I KNOW how hard it is... It does get better though and one day you'll be able to look back with pride and say "Look, how many things I have accomplished and how far I have come".

How about the fact that you were strong enough to leave a crappy marriage and are going to make it on your own? There are a million women who won't leave and take the crap instead. You are strong enough to leave, you are going to make your and your kids life better. Sounds like not such a bad start to a new year.


I am sorry you are having so many deaths and illnesses in your family though.

The year has to get better, right? This is a fresh start for you and the kids! A clean slate to do things bigger and better.
