My oh and I split very recently but are still living together until he moves to his new place in 7 weeks!! I'm suffering depression and stress (under care of gp for this). Oh is being very supportive and caring. We are splitting as its just not working. I told him I still love him tho and said I, want to try again but he doesnt.
I can't bear to see him everyday knowing he doesnt want to get back together. It's going to kill me seeing him every week, week after week for contact with our child (18month old). I can't cope with this. I know I will have to as our child needs both patents but its going to be agonising for me seeing him all the time. What can I do? I'm distraught
I agree, the more that you see your ex the more that you are reminded of your strong feelings for him, the more difficult you could get over him. These 7 weeks will prove to be really agonizing for you, especially of you have been trying to get over this guy. Someone has to move out soon.. if this is your place then you should ask him to leave sooner. It's the only way to get started in a new life without him.
I'm in a similar situation and initially we said we would try until Christmas to stay in same house. I couldn't. was getting too bitter and just wanted him gone. so oh found a house sooner and went on Friday. I agree with other posts he needs to go sleep on someone else's sofa. it is hard but think of the positives too. they will come I'm sure in time.
