The weight has lifted

January 2016 I had an R-Y bypass and lost over 100#s and am thankful to have such good health.  However, living with my husband became more and more difficult.  Last October, not for the first time but for the last time, he looked at me and said, "If you don't like it, you can leave".  So I did.  The first 3 months were rough but my life is getting better each day. I hope to be here more often now.

I'm sorry to hear that you've been through trying times Lee but I'm sure you made the best decision given your circumstances.

Congratulations on having the courage and the strength to make the right choice for yourself Lee. I know for certain, that I wouldn't be where I am today had my husband still been around to make my life miserable. I never did find the courage rage to leave him, but once the grief of his death was behind me, I knew I was a coward for letting myself live with him for so long.

Good for you !!  Was he shocked?  How are you doing now.  It is better to be alone then be married and be alone anyways.  This way you can do something about it if you want to

Sorry I haven't been on.  I've been traveling and visiting family that I really had visited with in decades. I was married for 25 years (I married late).  Yes, he was shocked and tried to get me to come back, said all the nice things and when I said I wasn't coming back he resumed his usual attitude (unpleasant).  I retired and that has also been good. I moved closer to my family and am getting settled in nicely in a new area.  I've been going to bed earlier and sleeping longer (about 8 hours) and not on the computer as much but a lot more active. Thanks for caring.
