i sometimes take it off coz it annoys me, when hands wet etc. but usually put it back on again. basically i feel my hands arent dressed without my rings.
so last week, before the crap hit the fan, i had taken them off. then i didnt put them back on, as a consious decision. but, my hands feel empty now. and i want to put them back on. just sort of hands feel empty without them.
is this weird.

If you want to wear it, wear it.

I haven't worn my rings since before I had ds - my fingers swelled up so they wouldn't fit.
Now I just have fat fingers and need to lose weight for them to fit again! Also keep getting bad eczema on the backs of my hands and fingers.

Hmm clearly i need to know more about the crap hitting the fan, before i can make up my mind (and i am clearly very nosy grin)

but nab, it feels hypocritical nto wear it...
or am i just reading too much into it. and should realise it is just a habit and doesnt actually signify anything.

If your dh is/was a twat, why do yuo want to wear a symbol of your union?

separeted from dh on christmas day, with complete and full intentions of getting the divorce through asap.

moony, i dont. that is why i am not weraing it. but, its a habit, and my hands feel weird without them. does that make sense?

Can you maybe sell your rings and get a new ring for you to wear on that hand?

Oh dear. sad
Know it hasn't been good for a while.
Sorry to hear this.
Hope 2009 is a better one for you, Stitch.

Treat yourself to a lovely 'here's to the future' ring and the put the wedding one away would be my advice smile

<<BT kicks herself hard>>

Sorry Stitch, I just realised that I've been rather dense.
YA still NBU... You are absolutely doing the right thing but it'll still take some adjustments on you part. After all, I bet this time last year you never would have imagined you would be where you are now sad
Be kind to yourself, of course things will be strange and confusing at the moment.

Okay, I realise now what you meant. blush sad I think you should buy yourself a ring to wear and put the wedding one away somewhere safe until you decide what to do with it. If you sell it and buy a new ring it will still be connected to your wedding and that doesn't seem what you want right now. Sorry for your separation.

If you have dc you could save your rings for them, by dad had to have his wedding ring cut off before his op and was going to throw it away shock so dd1 too it for her treasure box.
Buy a lovely ring that will symbolise a new future and better times ahead!
