Darling is still actively grieving his relationship with Chatty. He has started seeing a therapist, thank goodness. He still has terrible bouts of guilt, which sends him to hibernate in bed. He tells me he needs me to "just be here" for him.
I have been in the middle of a custody battle for the last eight months and this week I was given sole custody of my children. This was a big deal to me. I was so happy and wanted to share it with him but he was too depressed. He just couldn't be there in the moment for me.
I know there is no time limit for grieving. I am trying to be very supportive but I am starting to get sad too. It's like I've lost him. I miss him.
