Two years until my youngest kid graduates, and I file for divorce. DH is going to be shocked and devastated even though for the past 20 years I've told him how I'm sick of doing damn near everything. We've had the "You should have asked" discussion 100 times. I'm not going to have it 101 times. I'm just going to keep going through the motions until I can move on. He will beg and say he didn't know, he will do better. Nope. You've had 20 years to do better. And I've told you a million times, including during marriage counselling. Bullshit on the I didn't know thing. Unloading the dishwasher twice a month instead of once a month is not really trying or doing better. Already have it worked out how all the money and the house will be split. And I'm not even going to feel bad. If course, he's going to tell people that I blindsided him. And say things like, "Not unloading the dishwasher doesn't make me a bad person." Just two more years...

We were began sorta chatting during then summer, then went to Germany to meet up with someone, we stopped chatting and I got over you. I'm learning it didn't work out and you're texting again to say you care about me and cherish our connection. I really don't know what to think.

87-year-old dad was in quarantine and missed the birthday dinner I’d planned. Tried to reschedule but couldn’t find a day that my brother found convenient. So, after a week of trying to appease him, I told him that DH and I would have our own dinner with Dad and spend some time with him before we leave for our winter home (tomorrow). We had a wonderful afternoon and evening with Dad. At 9:45 last night brother texted me that he was going ahead with the family dinner this evening and we were free to join. Have I mentioned my brother is a dick?

DH promised to help with (lots of) laundry this morning, but had to go down to his friend’s and would ‘take ten minutes, fifteen tops’ to help with something. Twenty minutes later I see them leaving in the neighbor’s truck. So I stripped the bed (it’s a bitch to do), got the laundry together and went up and down steps to get it done. He walked in maybe an hour later and I calmly told him to walk right back out the door. It occurred to me that the fact that he keeps his word with everyone but me makes me so sad.

(Con't) of chronic fatigue syndrome post. I also feel like my ocd is in over drive. I have anxiety too. I haven't had a panic attack in a long time thank goodness. My boyfriend is a good man too. He always tries to make me feel loved. He tells me I'm beautiful every day. He's not perfect, but he tries so hard for our relationship. I just feel like I'll always be this way. I also have mouth and eye tics since I started adderall, but I'm scared to stop taking it because I know I'll be tired all of the time. I wish I was normal and could feel normal. Thank you all for listening.

This is me. I am 50 years old. I've suffered from depression and chronic fatigue syndrome almost my whole life. I hate myself daily. I'm scared to leave the house. My grown dd and ds are mad at me for selling the family home that ex and ds still in. It's going on the market on October 1st. Ex can't refinance it because we just got discharged from bankruptcy in December 2020. He said he'll give me $50,000 and I said no. I'm on adderall for chronic fatigue syndrome and it does help me stay awake, but my mind races outta control. I've developed a gambling addiction and owe 600 dollars right now because of gambling debt. Ex is an alcoholic. I go to Al-anon sometimes, but hate being looked at. I feel crazy. I hate myself. My life seems chaotic most days. I miss at least 4 to 6 days a month from work because I'm too scared and tired to go. I am in therapy but it doesn't seem to help. I don't know what to do. I'm an introvert. I feel like I never show up to anything because I'm antisocial.

In response to a confession. And now the whole floor of the assisted living place where Dad lives is under a 14-day quarantine! Three people tested positive for COVID and he’s texting me complaining. Why do I have to be so alone for two weeks… I feel like I’m in jail….my 87th birthday is next week and I can’t go to the party you’ve planned. Thanks to the assholes who refuse to get vaxxed. Once again your ‘my body my choice’ has fucked things up for others.

DH and I have been spending the summer near my Dad. Every year, just before we head home, he gets a little ‘clingy.’ His cardiologist told us a week ago that his tests revealed blockages in his heart, but wouldn’t do surgery. Today he tells me he can barely walk because his legs hurt so bad, and he’s decided that it’s because of the 80% occlusion in his femoral artery. The doc said NOTHING about percentages or the femoral artery! Five years ago he wouldn’t admit he had any medical issues. Now he’s taking his BP 8 times a day and checking his pulse ox at least 10.

I didn't reply and he texted again next day to ask if everything was okay. We are back to texting a bit, but I am using discernment now. I have backed from him a lot since I am prioritizing my healing.

He texted and asked how I was doing. I spent a good week making up stories in my mind. Perhaps he was just busy. Lesson learned to be careful that I don't read too much into other people’s words and behavior.
