    Lovely Ladies,
    I really found help from this podcast and I thank you. The good, the bad and the ugly. But, Jesus!

    I am sad at the lost years as well. And Natalie your comment about “why do we try so hard to get others to understand?” is me. I spent too much time here. I also know the losses of this are so excruciating that I do not wish this process on anyone. I am sure a death is easier to deal with. God is good though and He will get me through. I am anticipating His blessings on the other side!

    This was me for 42 years! I believed that I had to honor my vows. So I took it. It led to me needing intense mental health care.
    Now an elderly widow, I feel so deprived of my adult life, like I have been terribly cheated. That led to bitterness and regret and I will never recover all those years.
