I can't accept the loss.
I feel for you during this time. My husband has recently walked out on my boys and I. Completely blindsided.
could your wife be suffering from depression? I believe my husband is suffering and it is breaking our family.
Can you suggest to your wife that you seek counselling together or separately to try and see if you can communicate together.
I can feel the hurt in your post and I totally understand how you are feeling. We are all shattered and we are hoping each day my husband seeks help and eventually comes home but he has left for 2 weeks then decided to rent a house for 12 months! He has been very irrational with his actions and I am heartbroken.
Can you confide in any of your friends? Otherwise speak to a gp and get some help with counselling
Here if you need to talk. This forum has been a life saver for me
Hi Mr k
In feb this year my wife left. Whilst it’s been a pretty rough time since due to a custody battle the shock of separation has lifted and life is ok and getting better daily. Hopefully you will not go down this path but if you do it will hit hard but can get better!
if u do not have family or friends in oz reach out to who u can. A gp, councillor etc. someone u can vent to. Or on this forum.
stay strong for your girls. if u do seperate stay busy but take time to grieve, exercise and focus on rebuilding and bettering yourself are all things I have done that helped. That and talking it through and just being the best dad You can be.
It’s actually brought me closer to my kid. All the best
Yes the pain and toll I expected for my children was by far the worst part of it for me.
In reality thankfully they have been ok and from what I hear most cope well if the parents work with their interests at heart.
As for resilience for me it’s unlikely more than you, I’m just a little further along the process. I still have some bad days, but hopefully they will be even less when all the formal stuff is to the side. Being a single dad has its challenges but has it’s own set of rewards. I think if anything the bond between my children and I is even stronger, even if I don’t have as much time with them as in the past.
It’s good you have sort some profession help. I think that was a good move. Certainly helped me in those rougher first months. All the best keep in touch
