Sometimes it is so hard to keep it together. My son has not

Sometimes it is so hard to keep it together. My son has not forgiven me for what I did to our family and probably never will. He used to love me so much but I have lost him. I know he is in his teenage **** phase but being treated like crap day after day when you do everything for them and always have hurts so much. My husband is being pretty wonderful, he’s planning a clam bake for my birthday but everything hurts. We both work from home so we barely text bc were in the same house. When he does text me it’s very short. That makes my head spin bc I know he talks to her. I don’t know how long I can live this way. I know I have so much to be thankful for but some days I just want it to all be over.

@llovesj Very sorry to hear all this. It sounds like he is being very manipulative. I know you don't want to pull your family apart, but you may have to make that decision. You can't go on living like this, and he should not be permitted to behave this way.

I cannot believe what I have just read. I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. No one, and I mean no one deserves to be scared in their own home. Please you need to seek help. It’s not only yourself at risk it’s also your children.

He sounds like such a horrible man. Yes your affair was wrong but it sounds like you’ve admitted that. People make mistakes and sadly these things happen. It sounds like he has done the exact same so has no reason to be cross - 2 wrongs never make a right.

And for lashing out to a woman, well that is one of the lowest of the low. Please, please seek help and get yourself and your kids away from that awful environment.

I’m here for you if you want to chat
