Hi Warriors, I haven't posted in quite a while. I am a 3 year survivor of Head & Neck Cancer, and am very grateful to God, my Sisters, and this forum of friends who have been with me throughout this new norm. During my tx, my husband was uncaring, and unresponsive to my needs - a glass of water? Well, I left him. I have custody of m daughter, and we found a nice apartment. She has turned 18, and with the help of my husbands' empty promises ( new car, no rules) has left me. Yes, I am less stressed, but I miss her very much. Her stipend for SSI Disabillity has ended, and I know my husband only has the ending of paying child support on his mind. My daughter is so happy that he "wants" her, she cannot she this. He drove her here on Mothers' Day to collect her belongings. Nice! I can no longer afford this 2 bedroom apartment, and trying to "keep the faith", while actively trying to find a place that is affordable & safe. In the last 3 1/2 years - although he was supposed to have visitation every weekend, and 5 weeks per year, he may have seen her a dozen times. My heart is broken, as she graduates - I hope - from High School in 3 weeks, and I had asked her to visit Dad each weekend to see how it works out. She just left. I went to apply for Food Stamps, and have not heard yet. Very humilating. After 20 years of marriage, and in my 50's I NEVER though I would be in this position. I am praying God will lead mt path, and put me where I can be most useful. Right now, I feel useless. I have been discarded by my 2 children, like trash. I have been trying to recycle myself into a new life, and know I can do it. This is just another bump in the road - right? Thanks for listening. Hey! Anyone need a roomie! Lol!
Love & Prayers,
