my husband left a week ago for another woman we had been together for 15 years 4 beautiful kids now he won’t come and get his stuff from the house and doesn’t want to see the kids . The kids are finding it very hard except my youngest because he only 6months old . We are together for so long that I lost contact with everyone I knew so now always by myself which makes the separation harder I try so hard for the kids but sometimes just want to break down and cry I feel low all the time and can’t eat😔
I’m afraid how you’re feeling is very common from the experiences on this forum (and my own). For me it took nearly seven months of not eating or sleeping before I finally picked myself up. Trust me, it does get better, but you have to just keep going somehow. If you’re going through hell, keep going, as they say.
Your ex may not come back, but he’ll miss his kids at some time and things will settle down. But for now, it’s just one day at a time, and your kids need you.
