Well then it's a bit closer for you than it is for me, just sounded farther for you since you are in another state. I complain about having to drive 30 miles for a scope the day after I prep, lol! Yes, after all these years with Crohn's, I still whine about some aspects of it.

Hey guys I'm sorry for venting But the day for the divorce is getting closer and my wife could care less.. Why am I the one hurting and feel awful when I know she doesn't care and I know she's had affairs and has treated me as bad as you can treat someone who is sick but yet I am so upset and sad because of getting divorced. Have I just totally lost my mind or something. I am making my crohns worse I cant sleep I'm getting depresses and don't want to do anything. What is wrong with me.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with you....you are going thru the normal grieving process that you should. Keep praying, find things to make you laugh, whether it be a tv show, something you read, friends, etc. I used to call 2-3 good friends whenever I would be depressed over my Crohn's...they would let me vent, then get me laughing, knowing I had to do both to get to the other side. We'll have you in our prayers, and you keep praying too, he's with you.
I would not want to be her, by the time all she's done catches up with her.

When I felt like everything was crashing down around me, the verse that helped me was "Be still and know that I am God"....I have to make myself let go and give it all to him, knowing HE knows the whys and wheres and whens.

Hi guys I always seem to want to talk about this horrible issue when I'm feeling down. I have to admit this is hard to admit since I'm a guy and suppose to be macho lol but here goes. Ever since I found out about my wife having her affair with my brother I tried everything to get her to keep me. I lost all self confidence because I felt like no one would want me due to me having health issues. I thought that if I got a divorce I would be alone the rest of my life. These are horrible feelings to have but I think it was partly brought on by her looking elsewhere for attention or whatever you want to call it. I am having a terrible time accepting my marriage is over even though I know she was horrible to me. I'm struggling everyday and start crying when I thinkbof the happy times we had. I'm really confused in that I don't know what to do or how to feel. I know I did nothing to cause this and she tries to blame me for minor things that is ridiculous. The hard part is I loved her with all my heart and now I have someone who can't stand me and lives her life as if we were never married. I'm sorry for continuing to talk about this horrible ordeal but I have to vent to people that maybe can help me get through this. I am a person that never gets angry and always tries to keep peace. I love people and try to see the good in them so this is an area I'm not use to. I feel like I want tobget so angry but I usually end up just crying and trying to understand what happened which is a waste of time. The hurt is continuous and a since that no one would want to be with me. I'm out of answers and I don't know what to do all I know is that I am miserable and I just want peace and happiness. Please any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

I know it is hard when a relationship breaks down and especially when you feel betrayed by your wife and your brother.
I think you are going through a grieving process and you need to recognise that there are various stages that you will go through over the next few months.
Just try to remember that this is not your fault and hopefully things will start to sort themselves out. Small steps.
You are still a caring, loving person and this horrible experience will not change that.
Take care. 😎

I agree with ceeceego
It is a grieving process, one I don't envy you. I have been there though and it does take awhile. Just take it one day at a time. I promise you everyday and then week that passes by, it will get easier for you. Especially once it is final and you don't have to have contact any longer. For now, put yourself into something to keep busy. Plant flowers as soon as the weather breaks. Join a club or church group for men.Read the Bible because it will teach you great things about why you were made and how to put your life in His Hands.
Just keep talking till you feel better and crying when needed. OK?

I am so sorry to hear of all you are going through.

You will get through this, I know it is too hard for you see it just now but you will. The reason you are feeling the way you do is because you are a caring and compassionate person, if you didn't have those qualities then the journey would be easier for you deal with but not having them would make you like your wife and that is not the type of person you want to be.

Please remember one thing, this is not about you. This is not about what you have or haven't done, it is about the betrayal of your wife and brother. Be kind to yourself and know that the range of emotions you are feeling are normal, natural and just. Working through them will allow you heal and move on.

We are here for you so when you feel the need to vent or unload please don't hesitate and there is certainly no need to apologise.

Dusty. xxx

You have helped me so much and I can't tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to read my vents. I lost a lot of friends because what some don't know is at the same time all this is going on my wife and I were equal partners in some medical companies and my business partner did a hostile take over due to my soon to be ex having the affair and I was having a difficult time. I am litigating this and have not been paid since Feb 2012. The partner told all of my employees/friends if they talked to me they would be fired.

I want to thank all of you for your support during this horrible time. I'm having the worst time trying to deal with this and most days the depression and anxiety wins. This has definitely affectedly crohns and I feel like I need to be doing something but I really just don't feel like it. My soon to be ex is going bout with friends and having fun while I am fighting for my sanity it seems. I'm sorry to keep talking about this but I dont know what else to do.

Sometimes, all you can do is keep praying and telling yourself that "this too, shall pass"....and it will, I promise you, it will. Do your best to take care of yourself for us, eat when and what you can, even if it's little bits, take your medicines, and know that we all care so much.

I totally agree with Scottsma - at this time try not to think too much about the future - just take each day as it comes and appreciate the good things even the really small things like someone smiling at you or thanking you.

Do you have a song/piece of music/poem/passage from a book that cheers you up or can give you a lift? My song is Papa Can You Hear Me? from the film Yentl. It really helps me.

Take care. Hopefully this may make you smile.
