Today I moved in with my mother. My cats and gerbils came with me, but my husband did not. This decision did not come lightly nor quickly. I love my husband and I tried very hard to make my marriage work. Eventually, I felt forced to choose between staying married or losing myself, and I chose to leave. I feel terrible, but I also feel that this is the right choice. I suppose there is a chance that things could be worked out, but I don't anticipate this happening. The hardest part has been knowing that I have hurt someone that I care about very deeply. I am lucky to have people around me who love and support me, and appreciate them so much. Thanks to all of you who have expressed your support and concern, even though you didn't know what was happening! I hope to continue to blog, but I will be in a strange kitchen and using a strange computer for awhile, in addition to all of the personal issues I have to deal with. Thank you for your understanding!
