I know it is kind of odd to do this, but this community is very much a part of my family, and as such, I feel that some of you would want to know this. As some of you may remember, my wife of 8 years and companion of 12 years and I have been seperated since the end of November, about 4 months now. I have tried to do my best to work things out, but as of this morning, well...it is officially "over". We are not divorced yet, but it is now a foregone conclusion that we will not reconcile. She just does not want to work things out, and it has taken her these 4 months to get herself in the emotional frame of mind to do this. Sorry to spill my grief here, but y'all are "family"...thanks for all the support that has already been shown, and thanks in advance for that which will be shown. Please don't be offended if I do not reply to posts or PMs for a bit, as I am trying to learn to breathe again, and still trying to do all the other stuff in life, like work. I hurt so much I no longer feel pain.
