I have a great family, that supports me to no end...I even had to move back in with my mom is excited about having a lo in the house. Trust me you are going to have some bad days and really worry about making ends meet. But some how you always make it through...

Hi Mosley12 - My husband and I separated in Sept of last year. It was a complete and utter shock to me. He was cheating on me and wanted out of our marriage of 3 years. We have a 6 month old ds (he was 2 months old at the time) I have moved back in with my parents which is actually 6 hours away from xh. I honestly didn't know how I would recover from everything but time really does help. My parents are great and love having us here. I am maternity leave from my teaching job and hope to find a new position around here in the fall. I don't want to return to where we were living before. I have no family there and it would be hard raising ds there alone. My ds' father has been out here 2 times to visit. To say it was hard, is putting it very mildly. To split up when you have a child together is the hardest thing ever. You will be tied to that person forever. I have alot of anger and disappointment in me towards my ex. I am working through my feelings of resentment and trying to accept that my ds deserves to have a relationship with his father. I feel horrible knowing that my son is going to have a "sometimes" father but I also pray that I will find someone new some day who will be able to be a positive male for my ds. I am scared to be a single mom but I know it will make me stronger if nothing else. Please email me at shalyn4 at if you ever want to talk or vent or if you feel alone. I think we could really support each other. Take care and keep your chin up!

Shae-lynn, thanks. i dont know whats going on with him. for the last 3 weeks he's just been telling me he doesnt know if he loves me anymore. finally i was like fine. i asked him if he wanted a divorce and he said no. just a seperation. so ds and i packed up and left. we are at my parents right now too, and they love having us here, and its good for me because im able to have help with ds right now. my heart is breaking but i know i have to be strong. im almost to the point where im going to have the papers drawn up and initiate everything because i just cant deal with the hurt and uncertainty. my email is barbiegirl2958 at yahoo. id love to talk
