    Well it's all done with

    Why do I feel guilty to enjoy anything in my

    life right now? Why do I feel guilty when I laugh at a funny movie or to laugh at all for that matter. I think it was because of the years of emotional abuse but I'm not sure.

    I think my divorce is going to trial.

    After 5 sessions of mediation, 2 sessions with the judge he still won't agree to the most basic terms. Mediator and the Judge have been on our side the whole time. My lawyers are now preparing me. I have a very good chance of winning because I'm not asking anymore than what is...

    WHY why why did you feel you had to crush me

    in order to realise your dreams? You tell me you are ill and that I am abandoning you when you are so ill. But is that an excuse to hurt and abuse me? You crushed me, took everything I had to offer you but it was never enough. You almost extinguished the light inside of me...

    Finally, we discussed about every little

    Oh gosh! The mental/emotional energy expended

    to be a "fixed point" that everyone else can count on and thereby enjoy relative stability (even my STBX). Wow! I'd say I'm exhausted, but that would be insultingly understated.

    It feels so stupid and petty.

    We are throwing away 12 years of marriage and destroying the world of 2 beautiful children over money and sex. I hate it, I still love her and want her but she drives me crazy. She spends money we don't have but then justifies it with good reasons but that still remains, we...

    So finally we are getting a divorce.

    It is a funny thing. I was dreading getting a divorce. I know how ugly it can be and I really did try to convince my X that it would be better for everyone, including our son, if we just used a mediator. She refused. I tried to work with her, she still would not. I gave up and...

    The De-militarised Zone
