My husband of 10 years left me in January. He preferred another woman over me and expected me to move out of our lovely apartment and move back to my dad's house. BUT....since we had an invested marriage, it didn't work that way. Fortunately, I had a friend who let me stay with her. For a while, I lived between the two places. My husband was upset that we had to "share" the apartment, but my name was on the lease and I had every right to be there. On the days I stayed there, he had to stay with his girlfriend.
When my husband told me "the news", I never felt so low in my life. I wanted to die. I checked myself into a hospital. Meanwhile, he bangs his new girlfriend ON OUR BED. While I'm in the hospital. He tells me "I dreaded you coming home!" when I come home.
Unfortunately, he prevented me from taking two different jobs so I was unemployed. He expected me to leave with no job. It took me a couple months to get on my feet, but I eventually did with the help of family. I now have a job and a great new place in a better part of the city. I can walk EVERYWHERE! I have a couple "boyfriends" -- I refused to sit back and wallow. I always thought I was the "wrong" one, but there is nothing wrong with me! My ex had me brainwashed and emotionally abused into thinking I was mentally ill all this time.
I've never been happier.
