With cancer you think you might die, because you might! Divorce has hit me in the gut and ripped my brain like a violent roller coaster. I was the one who filed due to emotional abuse and his alcoholism. It HURTS! It SUCKS! And it doesn't ever completely end, because some day we will be at our child's wedding, and he will screw it up somehow. It hurts to have spent years protecting a child from their father and to have that child turn to the now attentive, poor daddy and feel like it is their responsibility to take care of the SOB! The mom is chopped liver, so yes, if you don't know the pain, confusion and crazy-making of the explosion/implosion of a family that has lasted 29 years, then STFU. You don't know my life.
