Have you ever experienced a series of unfortunate events......

Since July I have had so many things occur to me that i honestly feel that may be God is putting me through some serious tests.
1. Me and my BF of 12 yrs ended our relationship, confirmed that he was cheating. It's been 2 months since he left the house already
2 Since i kicked him out i work part-time really tight on cash, he promised he will cover the bills till i get on my feet.
3. Discovered that my daughter has an eating disorder.
4 My mom is back in the hospital, due to complications with cancer.

When i ended my relationship i've been on anti-depressants crying all over the place. But once i was faced with my daughter and mother's illness. I'm concerned but for some reason not afraid. I have done some serious praying and trying to find a way to balance my life to handle the situation I'm in.
A good thing is that i have found a pt job but its not a set schedule its based on events that occur 7 times a month.

  • Aw, honey, I'm sorry to hear you're going through all that! When it rains it pours, doesn't it?
    This isn't the same, but when DH and I got married, my dad pulled a stunt that was the last straw, and I ended my relationship with him later that week. I was also 13 weeks pregnant when I got married. The day DH and I got home from our honeymoon, he got laid off. We lived where he worked, so we had to go from 2 incomes and no bills to paying rent on my income and unemployment, plus deal with moving very unexpectedly and the other stresses of that. I was having awful back pain with my pregnancy, and DH was dealing with MAJOR depression, sending ME into depression, and it was just an AWFUL time for us. We've made it through (still working on it, because he still hasn't found a new job), and we have an amazing kid now.

  • All the same year. My mother in law died in March. My grandmother in law died in May. My mother died in June. My uncle, who was more like a father to me, died in August of '09. So yes I know where you are coming from.

  • Yeah I am just recovering from some some myself

    My highschool sweetheart whom I married divorced me after I miscarried my twins a year and a half ago.
    I then got married a few months after the divorce to another man, and got pregnant again.
    And he was in a very serious car accident and went into a coma... He died a couple days later.
    But on the bright side I have a very healthy happy little baby girl who is about 5 months old now.
    I am not dating again for awhile though, because I need time for my heart to settle down again.

  • OMG, I so sorry to hear of all of your experiences. I just feel that i have move forward and leave the past behind. I need to focus on my kids and helping my mother. At this point my ex and i cant even talk to each other because of his betrayal we just text each other. But cant try to make someone work on a relationship that has already moved on with someone else. I wish him the best, but i cant bring myself to speak to him face to face. We have a daughter together and we are going to have to learn to deal with each other.
