School started yesterday and my DH left me three days ago. I hope that is not a predictor of what my school year will be like. I have two little kids and I am already feel wiped out.

So someone share some happy thoughts with me.

I'm sorry that you're having such a rough week. I hope that your weekend brings some relaxation and fun times with your kids to take your mind off the tough stuff.

I'm so sorry about you and dh. I hope it wasn't a surprise. Look at the positive and think that you got rid of someone bad in your life (if that's what you wanted) Therefore this is a sign of a good year to come. Fresh Start! I hope you have a support system to help you with the kids. It must be stressful.

Do you have a friend or two who can help you out a little emotionally (and maybe physically)?

I hope that things get better. It most definitely would be stressful.

take it one day at a time and surround yourself with supportive and positive people who can also help you with your little ones. Whatever you do don't allow your situation to take away your joy or peace of mind. Enjoy your kids, job and other things that make you happy while working things out with your DH as best your can.

1. The bed is all yours.
2. No adult whining about anything going on in the background..
3. You don't have to throw a load of laundry in for him.
4. Dinner is all about you and the kids. Whatever you want to make.
5. You can call him an a$$hole with the confidence that you are correct.

I am so sorry!!!! Take it one day at a time, or one hour at a time if need be!

Find a friend or two or some family to help you out!

It will be rough, but you are stronger than you think and can get through this!

Timeforbed... you made me really LOUD! Thanks. Times like this I wish that my family was closer so that at least they could offer a distraction. But God is still good and that will have to keep me going till it gets better and easier.

What a tough spot! It seems that the worst has happened and now it can only get better. Be sure to invest in time for yourself and your emotions this year. Take care of your children and you!

Rough Beginning of School Year
Old 08-22-2013, 07:41 PM

Wow is right! You have it tough. My advice is to be gentle with yourself and take care of your kids. If you need to take a few days off, plan for it during the month of September--see a counselor, get a lawyer, of just rest. The stress is exhausting and you could prevent some stress related issuses. Just know that people here are thinking of you.

Sorry to hear about your DH leaving. It must be overwhelming, but you will be able to keep busy with your job and still take care of your children. Happy thoughts your way.

That is a lot to deal with. Take care of yourself and your children. It sounds like you will be better off without him. You are strong and life will get better. I am sorry that this happened.

This is the best advice that was given to me when my husband left. They told me..You need to put yourself first for if mama is ok, then your children will be ok. This was so true even though at first I thought I was being selfish. You will survive. I did and I found my second husband to be so much better than the first one.
