    It's not even September,

    I'm already dreading thinking about Christmas coming, I'm already facing major anxiety over the thoughts of this holiday. We were sitting almost 9,000 feet on top of the mountain,sipping coffee. I couldn't feel my ice cold hands and feet. You were freezing too, yet you still...

    I Can't Believe It... I Actually Left

    If you read my last story, you will know that I was the "other woman" in my last relationship. Yes, last. I finally got it all together and I left him. When it came down to it, I finally just said, "Its me or her. I can't live like this anymore." And he begged...

    Don't You Women Get It?

    Don't you women get it yet? Most married men are not going to leave their wife for the other woman. These men want the best of both and as long as you're giving it to them that's how things will be. These men are just missing that spark that passion that their marriage has lost...

    I came across a motivational video tonight

    but can't repost the link for some reason. But I want to share the message: - Don't let someone who got in your way for a moment, hold you back for the rest of your life. Just because he/she broke your heart for a moment, don't let them have you "stuck for 38 years". No one is...

    I Applaud "The Other Woman"

    I've looked through this "experience" and have read comments made by both sides. One against "the other woman"...and one supporting. I'm not out to hurt anyone, just merely wishing to provide my experience. Sometimes, speaking from experience, the "other woman" is actually "the...

    Never Thought I'D Be One Of 'Those Women'.

    Where to start.... I always thought I was an honest trustworthy wife/mother/daughter/sister/friend but now I have strayed into the territory of cheater. If you'd asked me what I thought about women who sleep with married men I'd have said 'home wreckers' and had a rant. But now I...

    He called and texted this morning,

    says he misses me. I know his hospital stay is really hard on him. He sounded so weak and sad. It breaks my heart. He got a picc line yesterday so hopefully he will get well enough to go to a regular floor soon instead of icu.
