Awful horrible week. I just need to complain.

This past week I went to see my family. They all live about 20 hours away so I don't see them much. While I was there I broke the news that I was planning on filing for divorce from my husband due to multiple affairs. Instead of getting the support I expected I was told by everyone that I am being stupid and that I don't care about what's best for my son because I don't want to try harder to work it out.

To top it off both DS and I caught a cold while we were up there and he's been a snotty mess and now I have tonsillitis. Earlier today he wouldn't nap no matter what I did and I lost my patience and yelled at him. He fell asleep crying in my arms. I feel like a worthless piece of shit right now.

I am sorry. Don't beat yourself up. We all have bad mommy moments. Hugs and feel better!

 I don't think you're a worthless piece of shit.  I'm sorry your family isn't supportive.  That's pretty crappy of them.  Do what's right for you.  Some people can work through an affair, but some cannot and the sooner that's realized then the sooner you can move on and heal.

Since they're so far away, don't worry about their opinions. You deserve someone who wants only you.

Good luck and get better soon.

I'm sorry they weren't supportive like they should have been. Get well. Also remember that you're both sick and going through a hard time give yourself a break.

One affair is one thing but several is too much for anyone to try and work through. Sorry you guys are sick and your support system is flawed.

Oh I agree, but I've seen people attempt to salvage a marriage after several.  Didn't work but she wanted to say that she at least tried.  I know I wouldn't even be able to bounce back from one.
