Dis-ease and illness get our bodies off balance, and that impacts on our mental and emotional health.
My wife left me a while ago for someone else and our divorce will be finalized soon. I believed I had moved on, and have since met a lovely lady with whom I was very happy.
I have recently had hip surgery which temporarily put an end to my very active sports while I was on crutches.
After the surgery I broke up with my girlfriend for no reason, and tried to get my wife back (even though I knew she was already involved with another man).
Needless to say, I have since come to my senses and have my lovely girlfriend back with me. Of course the divorce is going through, so that my wife and I can both move on. I am also fully mobile again.
I am trying to understand why I caused such upheaval in my life with my actions. Did the surgery cause some state of depression that made me lose my judgment?
I want to leave my marriage and my children for the sake of my own sanity.
I have never been maternal, and I feel that if I stay in a marriage that is smothering me with obligations and expectations, I will go mad.
I have thought about this for a long time and done much soul-searching, and this is the right decision for me and them.
How do I get my husband to allow me access to the children when I leave him?
