    Came home and she said what you said made a lot of sense. Meaning she wants something to change but she is doing nothing different for change. The flesh thought here we go. I prayed. She said how she is basically stuck because of fi ancials. She does...

    Went to prayer last night, but fell asleep before a prayer was said I think. But woke up and read all your comments. Thank you. It brings a tear to my eye knowing I have friends in Christ that are willing to help someone they will never meet. I know as...

    She went to the doctor and had some prescriptions filled. She orders the ones from the pharmacy at about 5 times the cost than the mail order. I have gone over this over and over in the past. Before the d talk started. This time I say nothing. She knows...

    over two years of verbal attacks. Harsh words. Cutting me down to the core. And then at Thanksgiving time, it stops, she actually even says a sentence or two back to me. But the last few weeks the stress in the house seems to have gone up a bit. But nothing...

    I was not looking for anything. Simply getting the bed ready for her when she comes home from wherever she is. I pulled a piece of clothing off the bed and heard something hit the floor. It was a piece of paper that had a list of phone numbers. Many work...

    I wanted to share with all you, my friends. As I was walking by her tonight, she shared a random, insignificant comment with me. All other talk has been basically necessary discussions on the kids or blow ups on why are we still together. I am quite sure...

    Another talk. She said she shouldn't be called out by one of the kids for cussing once a month. She said they had a talk and he made good points. He said he sees how she looks at me with a mean look and isn't nice to me. And it's affecting...
