    I've wanted this for a long time.

    I set a plan with time lines and just kept reminding myself I'm doing my time counting down the months until I could move forward. On one hand I grow increasingly restless and want to do this sooner then later. And on the other hand I am scared and anxious I don't want to...

    I am extremely unhappy and lonely. However, can't stand to hurt anyone even though I don't have the feelings for him that I once did. The one time I suggested a divorce, he threatened suicide. I know at some point I need to think about myself. But does one ever get past the...
