(40)

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I am having a lot of difficulty find much to be thankful for. I am new here to this forum. Not sure how it works.

Well, I guess I will try this. I could really use some support. It is not comfortable revealing this painful time of my life, but I need help. I do not have any family. I was rear-ended by a tractor trailer almost 20 years ago which life me disabled. My neck was twisted and the damage is too close to the brain stem to try to medically correct. So, I live in constant pain with limited physical capabilities. I can walk and talk and that is a blessing. I only state this because when you are poor and disabled, people lose interest in being friends. So I am basically alone.

Well, last week, my husband told me " You know how we always joked that I should get a rich girlfriend, well I did" He went on to tell me that he doesn't want to be married anymore. We had been married for more than 35 years. The Covid-19 virus has reared its ugly head again. We are stuck in our home together because we have to be careful. He nearly died (actually he did, but was brought back) about 7 years ago. He has a compromised immune system. I, too, have health issues. So, it looks like I have to live in my house with him walking around. I find it difficult to stop behaving like a wife, but I am working on it. I do not know what to do. I know there is a lot to take care of before I start my new life, but it feels like he's too happy with his new life to help. I am doing everything I can to avoid drama, but emotionally I am a wreck.

In addition, as soon as possible, I looking to move out of the northwest. I am sick of 9 months of rain. I do not know where to go. I just know that I would prefer to live somewhere where the weather is nicer.

I understand that this groups is comprised of people going through their own hardships. I wish everyone joy and peace. Thank you for listening.

@newDiana I was in shock when I read this! Has he even met this woman? He sounds very shallow to through everything away on a whim.

I thought but didn't say, can you protect your accounts?

@mmadlecl it certainly has put a damper on things.
