Where Real Life Bites

Well, it’s been a while since I blogged at all. Real life came along and bit me BIG TIME. I had a very busy time at work, but the real thing is that on the evening of our 21st Wedding Anniversary while thinking about what to do for it, my husband and I finally realised that things were not really working any more for us. We had become more like brother and sister than husband and wife. We niggled, we bickered, we loved each other, but not in a touching, caring sort of way. We decided that it would be in all our best interests if we separated.

The kids were coming up to exam time, so we decided to wait until they had finished before telling them. We told them at the start of half term, then we all went away together as a family for a holiday to show them that is was still possible, that the world had not ended and that we would find happiness again.

Two weeks ago, he moved out. It has been a hard time, stressful but liberating, emotional but calm. I had been from one extreme of feelings to the other.

With all this going on, I’ve kind of immersed myself in family and WOW and generally hidden from the world a bit. My MS showed symptoms of causing another relapse so I decided to try and beat that off and have been on some high dose steroids which, although causing some nasty insomnia, have helped. I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

This has helped me through. I read this and it gets me through the tough days.

Thanks to my family, my friends, my guild, WOW. Thanks to all the people who have said kind words, who have offered support, who are there for me.

May love, peace and happiness follow you all.

Normal service will be resumed soon – MOP is coming! More pets! Farmville! New toys (for me?). New adventures. I’ve not been on the beta and I’ve not really read too much about it. I want to take my time and smell the flowers, see the scenery, immerse myself in the fantastic new world that Blizzard has created. I am not going to rush to do it all. I have all the time in the world …. of warcraft 🙂

    Sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate right now. I really admire your attitude, how you manage to be so positive and focused despite everything is very inspiring. Hang in there!

    The first couple of months are hard as you’re all finding your feet as a single parent family, but you’ll get there. Sending loads of love, sweety. If you want an ear from someone who’s been there, you know where I am, yeah?
    Loads of love xx
