A lot has changed

The past year and a half has been tough.

First the cancer diagnoses, chemo, radiation and then a mental breakdown followed by (or being the cause of) divorce.

We are nowhere near divorced.  I might have to change lawyers?  I don’t know. Nothing has changed since the first time we went to see her.

I’m purchasing the house.  We’ve painted it in colours we love, for instance my room is grey and red.  Pretty much every room has one wall in a chosen colour and the others grey.  It looks stunning.

I changed my surname back to my maiden name yesterday.  That felt pretty freeing. Can’t wait to get my ID card.

It’s been a roller-coaster ride.  It has been emotionally tough  on me.  When I needed support, I was asked for a divorce.

Oh well.  Here we are.  Almost five months later and I’m still alive.

    • You are right. This too shall pass. We just focus on one day at a time.

  2. I’m so sorry! What a shitty thing to go through on top of everything else. Waaaaaaaay back when I got divorced (2002), it took a bloody year. It would probably still be going on if I didn’t decide that I can’t be the doormat and the bitch at the same time. So I opted for bitch, stomped my feet and showed my teeth. Two weeks after that.

    • It’s getting to a point where that will happen. I just want the house to be on my name. One step at a time.

    You are stronger than you could ever imagine.

    A life of freedom and joy to be lived the way you’ve always deserved, are just beyond these dark clouds and the positive winds of change will help carry you through.

    You deserve all the happiness and light that is already on it’s way to you.
