I left a 28 year marriage because my ex was an angry alcoholic. I've been in a relationship with an ex addict for 9 months. He's almost 4 years clean. He has bouts of anger and I hate it. It's always in the car after we've had a good weekend trip. I'm a empath who is also very sensitive. I've had enough. He's always sorry and I get people have character defects, but maybe I need to be alone again for awhile.

SD26's bridal shower was this past weekend. As we live 600 miles away, I was unable to attend, but sent several gifts from her registry that were delivered last week. SD sent pictures from the shower to DH, but not to me, in fact I haven't heard anything from her. Am I wrong to feel hurt? I mean, I was the one invited, not DH.

Inspired by hanginin's comments. I wish I had someone to nerd out with over Horticulture or Psychology. What about you?

So...my dad told me yesterday that he started dating a woman about a month ago and things are starting to get serious. It sounds like she is very sweet and going to be a good companion for him now that Mom's gone. She wanted him to find someone else after she died and I don't feel bad that he met someone, but it's a little weird. However...she is my dad's age and that's all I care about. I just didn't want him dating someone my age. I haven't met her yet, but I hope she's cool and that I might get a new stepmom to get to know.

In response to a confession. My pleasure. Any excuse to brag because honestly I've been in relationship no-mans-land for so long I thought I was going to have to join a nunnery. We're both into Star Wars, Marvel and some anime stuff as well. We ended up talking all week on FaceTime and went out for a couple of beers last night. Usually I suck at first dates but because we'd talked a bit I was really comfortable, and this guy is just the perfect combo of cute, hot and nerdy and not at all stuck on himself, he's got that British self-deprecating thing too and isn't at all arrogant. I feel like I've found an actual unicorn.

My mom had a breakdown again. It was smaller compared to last time, but I still had an emotional reaction. I told her not to yell at me and raised my voice. I was more reactive than I would have liked. I wish I didn't get triggered so much, but she immediately goes to worst case scenarios and blows things out of proportion. This issue was regarding housing and how my brother couldn't help her with something, she immediately thought she would be homeless if she didn't turn it in. She has an undiagnosed mental illness and its hard to talk sense since life has been a struggle. I need to just be firm, give her facts and not be reactive. I almost cried talking to her. Again, did not think our call would get me triggered. Ugh, so much healing I need to do around my family. I wish my brother would just help her, but I get he's really tired and triggered, too.

In response to a confession. Here's the thing Stormy--he would LOVE it if I did that to him. His "love language" is physical touch and he absolutely loves it when I grab his ass or squeeze his arms or whatever. I'm a touch-me-not so it bugs me when he does it. I tell him it bugs me sometimes, but not every time. Maybe I just need to be more vocal about it.

Does anyone else's DH like to grab their ass, squeeze their arms, squeeze their boobs...just generally TOUCH them all the DAMN TIME?? I love that DH can't keep his hands off me, I guess. But I wish he would sometimes because it's freaking annoying that I can't walk around at home without him coming up and touching at least some part of my body all the time.

My friend texted asking for some help with tech support with Canva. Her daughter is tech savvy and could have probably helped. I texted right back and apologized to say I couldn't help this week since I on a tight deadline, but next week works. She said no worries, have a good week. I said thanks and mentioned how hectic this week was. She replied, "Yep." I wish she was more encouraging since I'm under a great deal of overwhelm and feeling a lot of anxiety. It's the same friend that talked quite about herself on the hike. I think I've been a helper to friends for a while and now when I need to lean in for support I only have 1-2 that would truly be there for me. :(

In response to a confession. Call me bitchy, but it literally takes 15 seconds to send someone a nice text, which is better than nothing. Nobody is THAT busy or "emotionally full".
