My name is Melissa. I live in Maryland, Upper Marlboro. I am currently separated from my husband by protection order. It's only been a month and I am feeling sad and down all the time. I know what I did was for the best for my me and my boys but I find myself feeling guilty. I joined Cafe Mom because I am hoping to connect with some moms who can relate and hopefully build some friendships here. One of my husbands controlling ways was to remove all my friends. I have a small support group of family and friends right now.
