Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri May 20, 2011, 12:10 AM

I don't think this group will last, but it was a blessing to me when I needed it most.

Here's hoping it will remain so that it can help someone else deal with grief.

1. I hope it lasts also

I never shared anything crazy b/c ex knows about DU and reads occasionally, but I did PM with some wonderful people here and I would hope I could help others deal with going through this awful experience. When you are going through it you honestly think you are the only one and when it first happened, even just reading through the posts helped. I hope it stays!!

6. This is my first visit also.

It made me sad to see your post. Keep your chin up, and write more when you are able.

today things do not seem as bad as when I first posted...So much has been happening to me and my family, but we will make it. But this place is needed, without a doubt...just a few words of encouragement is somtimes all that is needed. Sorry I didn't get back sooner but will check in more often...

5. agree and in memory of blondatlast I think we should try to make it last

I know for me, I really don't want to talk about all the details but would be a nice place to be able to vent, hash stuff out, etc.

8. agree, not that folks are going to post in it all the time but just knowing it's here

if they need it will be a comfort to DU'ers...like the Cancer Support forum and others.

I just saw this thread, and I almost had a heart attack when I saw who started it.
I didn't know she had posted over here earlier this year.
Took my breath away, like a kick to the gut.

I want to say that divorce can be rough. But, there's always hope.
In my situation I thought there was a chance of reconciliation.
Or at least, an explanation.
Or maybe even a chance of getting back together.
But, as time passed on, I realized I had to go on, to move on with my life.
It's not easy at first, but it does get easier.

Yet, seeing blondeatlast's name here came as something of a surprise.
I didn't know that she had been divorced, but she sure was a kick in the pants when she posted at the DU forum.
She had a lot of good things to say at the DU and she was almost always cheerful and full of hope, so it is sort of nice to see her name here.

11. I didn't know she'd made it to DU3 either.

I teared up a little.

We didn't know one another but I was often brightened when I saw her posts. I'm glad she made it here, makes it feel even more like "home".

13. I wish I knew about this group over the summer...

separated now. Putting the house up for sale, and then filing.

30 years of marriage and he throws it all away for a 45 year old skank (17 yrs younger than him) who has two grown kids and never been married.

I had a rough summer. But am much much better now.

Hugs to everyone who is going thru this crap.

17. It sounds like he hit midlife crisis.

My spouse and I just seperated a week ago for that reason. I have been reading a lot about that and it has been helpful. Let me know if yoy would like some resources.

16. Same here

I actually never posted here but have kept this forum on my radar in-case I decided to post something. I have thought about it before but backed away from it, basically an inability to cope (when I'm certain I'm over it, I get a strong reminder that shows me that I never was). I became isolated & serious. Even when I know others are joking, I answer the questions at face value.

Anyways, agree hoping it will remain.
