I just needed to vent a little about shared custody...

My ex and I have 50/50 custody of Emilie and I HATE it! It's so hard not seeing her everyday...we've been divorced for a while now but it just doesn't feel like it's become any easier!

We originally thought it best to share custody because it wasn't fair to deny Emilie either of her parents; but now I'm wondering if I made the right choice.

Everyone keeps telling me, "things get better with time..." Right now I think it's BS (LOL) but I hope what they say is true...

I can't imagine how frustrating your situation is for you. 

i know it's frustrating for me, to know that my sons father has no sense of responsibility and half the time doesn't even see his son. MEN!...

you vent mama! :)

She cries when I drop her off with her dad, but never cries for her dad when he drops her off with me. I don't know, I think overall she's okay; it's just me who's not!

Jun. 6, 2008 at 4:23 PM I have custody of my daughter and her father get to visit from friday to sunday on the first and third weekends of the month.   This alone upsets me. i completley see how upsetting it can be.  When my daughter is gone i cant sleep i dont want to eat and i worry all the time.  It has been this way for about a year and it hasnt got better for me yet. Sorry but thats just how it is for me.
