Damn 20yrs, TT is a bitch isn't it? I'm glad I wasn't around long enough to experience much of that. Most of my truths have been discovered through sleuthing after I left.
Does this TT give you any closure at least? Is this something you suspected, but your H would never confirm? Or is this brand new info? Was it a restaurant you have been to with your H since the A? I can only imagine all of the things you want to smash over the top of his head right now!
CallingSpades, well, I was not successful. I had an absolutely miserable day going cold turkey, kept trying to nap to try and sleep it off. Posted on a few different topics on SI trying to keep my mind off of it.
I took the excedrin and it didn't do it. So I gave in and went to the convenience store down the street and stocked up. I figured better to buy it now then to have to make multiple trips. I made the cashier scan the items without touching them, brought my own bag, and waited until other people were out of line before going up to pay. Social distancing is hard when other people don't give a shit about it! I figured I will ration myself and slowly wean myself off of it.
Meanwhile a few neighbors on nextdoor are shaming people for going out without masks and gloves, and asking why people are even going to wait in line at stores for essentials? I clapped back, hard. I mean, sorry "Karen" that I didn't buy boxes and boxes of masks and gloves a month ago, and now they're completely sold out in stores and online! And sorry I didn't go hoarding toilet paper, and now I'm down to 3 rolls and need to go get some soon!
Oh, and people are now saying that their doctors recommended to shower and wash your clothes every single time you come in from outside. 1 load of laundry in our building costs $4. Soooo, I guess I'm just gonna be a hermit for a while.
This all reminds me of the time my XH came home from a business trip with pink eye. He insisted that wasn't what it was, and I stupidly believed him and had sex with him. Got it in one of my eyes, and it was so bad I even popped a blood vessel in my eye! As soon as I noticed something wrong I became hyper vigilant about hand washing, used Q-tips any time I had an itch anywhere on my face that needed scratching and threw them away immediately, and even kept my pillow in my closet, so that he wouldn't accidentally take it and use it. Only slept on the one side so that I wouldn't get anything on the pillow case. Wiped down all of the communal surfaces multiples times a day - door knobs, counters, fridge etc. Well, XH was a complete moron and kept wiping his eyes and touching everything, ended up spreading it to his other eye too. Meanwhile I managed to not get it in my other eye, AND neither of the girls got it because of all of my cleaning. So I like to think I'm pretty good at preventing stuff like this from spreading. Crossing my fingers that remains true.
I'm concerned for DD18 as well, who still lives with her dad. His motto is "Resist much, obey little," so my gut tells me he won't be taking isolation, social distancing, or any type of cleaning measures seriously. I mean this is the man who cleaned his fish tank with his bare hands, then was shocked when I asked him to wash them before he came and tried to have sex with me. My confidence in his ability to thwart infection is in the negative. Not to mention the mistress lives with them, and she's a few crayons short of a full box too. I reached out to DD and told her I'm here for her if she needs anything, but XH has her so scared, she still won't talk to me. My MIL says she has spoken with her and she's fine. I just hope it stays that way.
How is everyone holding up?? I feel like I've taken over the thread lately haha.
