I never in a million years expected to end up being a single dad.
But somehow, I’ve managed to end up here. And you know what? It’s actually pretty exciting!
I spent a lot of time scratching my head trying to figure out what went wrong…what I may have done to my ex to make her leave. Eventually, after much soul-searching, reading, and researching I figured it out.
I did nothing. Turns out she was just a narcissistic child who didn’t like being a wife and a mom. Oh well.
Her loss, really.
But now the main battle is over, and it’s time to move forward. And yes…I was able to end up with primary custody (and Texas is a very mom-centered state, so you can do the math on that). I’ve got a huge mess to clean up financially, and there are plenty of pieces to pick up.
To everyone who donated to help with legal fees…THANK YOU!
The fundraiser is still open if you would like to help us with legal fees and getting back on a more stable footing. We still have a balance with the attorney (and more possible pending legal issues coming up soon), but for the most part we’re just trying to stabilize.
I am excited to say that I have started finding my way back into hobbies that I had previously lost interest in…like this site. I used to love working on it, but I fell away from most things that I enjoyed (that can happen when you’re dealing with narcissistic abuse). But slowly those passions are coming back.
We’ve got a long way to go, and I’ve got blog posts to write!
