Woe Is Me....

I'm losing my mind today! My (estranged) hubby came over to my house last night and destroyed the coffee table in my living room. He was like a demon possessed. He had this look in his eyes as if he was looking right through me. I just wanted to run and hide.

The next thing he did before he left was throw his wedding band at me. This is all that was left of it.

He told me he was going to his lawyer's office today and that our divorce would be final in eight days. We had gone to sign some preliminary paperwork back in July, but I had no idea it would happen this fast. I'm freaking out.

Why do I even care about it, or him, when he is so heartless? I guess because I've been with him for 12 years, and I don't want to let it go. I'm panicking and I'm scared.
And on top of all of that, I have to sit here at my desk and actually work? How can I focus on my job when I'm about ready to bust into tears at any given moment. Damn Him!
It's a good thing that one of my best traits is being able to maintain composure in times of utter devastation.

Jen - OMG! What a prick! I've gone on some flip outs before but damn!

I'm not one to hand out marriage advice, but I'd get a restraining order!

Just take each hour as they come today. Don't stress yourself out too much, and when the day is over, go treat yourself to something special.

Thanks Neo...I hate when I get "weepy". I'm not much of crier, but I'm hurt, I'm pissed, I'm sad, and I'm in shock.

I appreciate the advice.

My boss is supposed to take me out to lunch for my birthday, I just hope that I can maintain.

Wow! I would have to agree with Neo... I think I would be terrified of what he would do to me after seeing the coffee table.
I don't have much to offer except
"Good luck and stay strong."

Jen -HBD! You say it's your birthday? Happy birthday to ya!

Dah Dah Dah Dah Dah, Dah Da!

Dah Dah Dah Dah Dah, Dah Da!

So your going to the party party!

So your going to the party party!

Ok, enough of that.

Just take a deep breath and relax. You're a winner and you'll come out of this better off.

Just keep thinking you deserve better.

Kelso: I really appreciate it. It's hard to keep my head up, but I'll try. I'm pretty tough - on the outside at least. ;o)

Well, my birthday is actually Thursday. I'm a Turkey Baby.

I'll try to keep remembering that, but it's hard. You know I have self-esteem issues.

He yelled at me that the divorce papers were my birthday gift.

What a jerk.

I have the same problems with self esteem, so I know where you are coming from. He was a total jerk to tell you that was your present. Just don't let him wear you down. How is your step daughter doing in all of this? He should at least have enough common sense about her feelings.

Jen -Don't ever let a guy treat you like a doormat. He was lucky enough to marry you. Obviously he's the one with problems not you.

Don't let his hangups mess with your game plan.

So I should expect you here when? I'll get out the fine china and the beer coozies. I'm sorry to hear about that sweety and I know you're safe with your CCW =P. My fights this weekend were never even close to that b/c I could never act like that and the wife usually only throws a few things here and there. I'm here for you anytime you need me.

Kelso: Thanks for the b-day wishes. My step-daughter would rather live me than either of her parents - I don't know how that's going to work out.

Neo: I know, I's alot easier for me to say it, then to actually do it. But I'm trying.

Twisty: I'll take the red-eye. LOL

You are so sweet - especially after I beat your ass - just kidding. I'm not trying to rub anything in....I'm just taking my glory where I can get it.

I just wish I didn't weigh my self-worth on what he's doing. It's really not even worth my time. I guess it's just because I don't know anything else. Does that make sense?

Eric and I are going through the same thing with "his" oldest. He doesn't want to live w/his mom and has nothing to do with his father, and was adopted by Eric when he was 2. He has told me a couple of times that he likes me better than his mother. How old is she? Is she old enough to make her own decision in court? We are still waiting for the court to give a decision on where the kids will be and it's been almost 2 months.

Jen -Hey, I don't mind letting a girl win. Even if she was drinking a "Light," beer. I'll take my lumps. But I bet you the winner would have been me if it were a face to face. So :p

As for your problem, look at it this way, the sooner it's over, the sooner you can begin again.


November 21, 2005 1:43 PM

Kelso: She's 14, so the Court would let her have a HUGE say in where she wants to live. I just don't know if I want that right now. I love her like she's my own, but I think it would be better if I didn't have to see HIM for awhile.

Neo: OK, OK - I'll give you that. Light beer does go down easier, but if you wanna go for a liquor challenge, you will lose.

I hope that one day soon I can realize that this is a new beginning and not the END of everything. It'll take time, but I'll get there. I'm a toughie!

Jen -The only hard stuff I'll drink these days is Tequila. But I'm afraid if I tried that, I'd end up getting arrested for being drunk in public. Man I can see the headlines now.

Man found naked talking to himself!

That's a good one! But, hopefully, if you were drunk and naked, you wouldn't be alone. LOL

Jen- No amount of advise or encouragement will take away the stings you feel right now, but know that you do have friends on the other side that support you and wish the best for you.

Hang tight, southern girl... remember you're a "steel magnolia".

Oh my goodness Jenn! When I commented earlier, I hadnt realized you two weren't together. I guess I missed that. How scary with that temper. I'm glad you are ok. I have never seen anyone do something like that. I don't know what to say. I know I don't KNOW YOU or the entire situation but it sounds like you are most certainly better off now. I know it must hurt but for sure, time will heal the pain. You're gonna be ok! In fact, it sounds like you are on the right track already. You are very smart. I'm still sorry for the sadness. xoxoxo

Jen, let that anger and frustration motivate you into doing something to push yourself forward.
You have a lot of raw emotion right now, use it for the good.
I don't know what your thing is, but when I go through a situation like that I take advantage of it and sit down and write.

I'll keep you in my prayers.

You don't need someone who is so immature to act out in a way like that in your life.

OMG Jen!! You poor thing. I've been in your shoes before, losing someone special and a big chunk of your life, no matter what an ass they act like. It's hard. They can be the meanest person, a different person from who you knew before, they can do things that scare you and hurt you but it makes it hurt no less. It really is true that time heals all wounds. It always helped me to remember these feelings would subside with time when it hurt the most, and they did. Don't be afraid or ashamed to break down and cry, scream, hit a pillow. I'm not a weepy person either, and try to hold it in sometimes, but I've found it's better to get it all out when you feel like it. Big ole cyber (((hugs)))

I'm so sorry Jen! why did he flip out like that? You haven't finished the story, so I'm not sure how you two got to this point. I hope you're ok...wish I could give you a hug...or just hang out and have some girl time. I'm thinking of you! xoxo

I'm sorry to hear that Jen. I am glad it wasn't worse than that though. I know it's rough sweetie. It's happening quickly, but from the sound of it...the sooner the better for you. Good things will come to you after all this is through, just hang in there.

Happy Birthday! ;)
