    In an hour, Matt and I are seeing a relationship counsellor at his begging and pleading. The counsellor will tell him the same thing I have told him endlessly (that it's over) and I will have to watch his heart break for the umpteenth time.

    Denial is making this really, really rough.

    That sounds awful. I'm so sorry you and Matt are going through this (not meant as a couple, but both independently).

    Maybe the relationship counselor will be able to get it through to him, as well as help you guys both just... move on and start healing.

    Thanks everyone. I knew the process would be long and tough, it's not easy when you're in the deepest depths of it.

    This too shall pass. I am a rock in a river.

    Can you just break contact from him? Its really the only way for the person not over it to get over it.

    Friends with exs doesn't work for all. It just can't. at least not after a long long break.

    Sorry your having to go through this.

    We live together. My pets and my work are here (not to mention I'm the homeowner) and he has nowhere to go. His parents are nuts and his friends are all living with parents.

    We're going to figure something out so that he doesn't have to be here, but it's not an easy matter.

    So, after dealing with the moving people today (one of which was a MAJOR A HOLE. As in, calling us names behind our backs and making everything difficult A HOLE)......on top of dealing with a freaked out Zander and moving, and organizing, and cleaning, and running this way and running that way, and NO SLEEP WHAT SO EVER.

    I dropped Jin off at the gym and decided I was going to CVS for more cold medicine. 30 seconds after getting off base, I realize I don't have my purse with me. No ID, no licence, no NOTHING. So I drive back and go to the visitors center for a pass. Security Forces (military police) lived up to their a-hole reputation and laughed in my face and told me to start walking.

    It's THIRTY ****ING DEGREES. I have a headcold and sinus infection from hell, I've been on my feet the last WEEK cleaning and moving and organizing. A 30 minute walk to the house DOES NOT SOUND FUN.

    So I call Jin, stupidly thinking he would surely stop his workout with his workout chick, and answer his friggin phone. Nope. Texted. Nothing. NOTHING. (It's been nearly an hour now, and still NOTHING.)

    My pass expired within an hour (it is supposed to be free-use for 24 hours. More of SF laughing in my face), so I ended up walking.

    So I'm now sitting in the house fuming after a walk home.

    I'm so sorry Allie. A relationship ending is always heartbreaking, but even more so when you're not in the same "place", so to speak. (((hugs)))

    I'm at the stage of the flu where I am feeling better, starving after not eating since yesterday, but too scared to eat because we don't have anything "pukable" in the apartment. So instead I will go to sleep...again.

    It is my on call weekend. Thus far, no calls. This isn't unusual for a Friday (a lot of people will just wait to come in tomorrow, since we're open half day, if it isn't a life threatening emergency) but I do hope I get at least a few over the weekend. If I'm giving up a weekend to carry a phone around/not be able to leave town/have alcoholic beverages/limit my activities I at least want to make some cash.

    The vet I'm on call with had a c-section a month ago and is limited to lifting 10 lbs so I also hope I don't have any Mastiff emergencies
