I was married for 40 years and my husband just up and left me out of the blue. Not only was this a kick in the face, but he did it ON OUR ANNIVERSARY! I’ve never been alone in my life and now I have to deal with the pain of his actions and paying all the bills alone, all while not letting my children see the true pain. I don’t have the finances to see a counselor (or insurance) and I don’t want people at my church to know my deep dark secrets. This is the only place I feel I can talk about this because no one knows me, so there will be no judgement. I feel so alone and just don’t know what to do. Lonely and afraid.
