Response to get the red out (Original post)

Tue Jan 1, 2019, 03:43 PM

44. Update

I hope I don't sound awful, but Mike wants a divorce and I threw my hands up and agreed that it might be best. What has started making me angry two weeks after the fact is how this came down with his therapist, who had us fill out an extensive questionnaire about our relationship and what we each wanted in general then didn't even go into any of it since I had agreed to a divorce. Looking back, Mike isn't exactly in his right mind. But I also know I can't keep trying to find a way to manage this relationship. It hurts and I have gone from being relieved to not be living with him, to anger, and sadness (both at once now). I felt defeated and didn't try to contact his Psychiatrist, his therapist said he was going to do that. His therapist even got the contact information for the "princess" (hotel night manager Mike said he was in love with, he said she was a descendant of royalty in that last "marriage" session), he was going to contact her and tell her Mike's situation, I think. I gave up and stopped trying to control this situation, I am not that damned desperate for a man! I want him to get well, I will always love him, but since I am on the way out of his life he is just going to have to be helped by the professionals, if that is possible.

No offense to men, I LOVE men and always have, but after all of this I can't imagine having a "man" in my life that doesn't have 4 legs and pees on light poles.

Thanks to all of you for this space where I can relay my tale of woe.
