Tomorrow is the first anniversary in 39 years that I haven't been married. 39 years ago tonight I was full of love and hopes and dreams. Tonight I spent several hours deleting pictures - all those memories of places we went, trips we took, things we did. All the pictures of our last anniversary trip to the mountains. It was a romantic weekend, but I look sad. Two days afterward he was in a another hotel room with someone else; d-day wouldn't be for another 10 days. So many experiences, so many memories that I had treasured. Most of my life. Erased. Literally in the trash. :(

Can't help asking myself again tonight where we derailed. I STILL can hardly believe this happened

Its little comfort now but YOU were present in that marriage. You experienced love, teamwork, commitment and empathy. Nothing he did or does can ever change that.

I felt like I wasted/lost 10 years of my life. In many ways I did. There is not a single thing from that time that isn't tainted for me now. Not one.

I was recounting my birth stories recently - both amazing and fantastic. I actually cringed in the middle of the story because I saw him there in my minds eye, like a shadowy menacing figure tarnishing my memory. I had to push the vision away.

That made me sad. Two beautiful milestone moments tainted.

I will reclaim those memories in my mind. It just hasn't happened yet.

I have no photos of us together. There only ever existed a single photo of the 4 of us together - taken when my youngest was a few days old. S was when she was 18m old. There were no happy moments to capture and for that I am sad.

Be gentle with yourself today friend. I've been through that exercise myself and it was 'only' 9.5 years. Harrowing. Painful. Necessary. Another step on this path to healing.

TC. Im so sorry hun for the pain you are going through.

I too deleted, well everything, because all the time I spent with him was a lie.

Like SBB says though YOU were living an honest life, YOU were present in your marriage. Its not a lie for you. All you are doing now is removing the lies that HE planted one image at a time. Its both healing and painful.

(((such big hugs for you))))

I'm sorry TC; you're not alone. I was with the X for almost 40 years, M almost 33. Our last anniversary trip he couldn't wait to get home; he was so antsy and mean. We were also on a trip to the mountains; we only stayed one night. I was so confused...

I know it's devastating and you don't want to hear this, but even after than long a time together, it does get better. You should plan to do something fun on your former anniversaries; I went to Las Vegas with SI friends on my first one post D. Now after 2+ years, it's just a blip on my radar screen.

Take care of yourself (((((trebleclef)))))


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Thank you so much SI friends. You are a comfort. I do have something to do today that will occupy my mind.

Last year I sent him a brief email saying "38 years ago today you promised to live and cherish me and keep yourself only for me. You lied"
He wrote back to tell me how excited he was to marry me and that he meant those vows.

Yeah. That's apparent.

This year- he gets crickets.

Lots of hugs to you. It's difficult purging those memories. I can't imagine having to go through 38 years of them. It's only upwards from here, right?

In 4 months I will be experiencing the same thing except it would only have been our 16th year wedded. I cringe already thinking about that....so I can't imagine what it must be like for you having been M two and a half times longer. I'm sorry. I hope you have something to do or friends/family you can surround yourself with to keep occupied so you don't dwell on it. I wish you the best tc.
