Hi Ashley,
Here are some links to some threads/sites/pages regarding jealousy, in case that might help.

Brené Brown: the Power of Vulnerability

It actually sounds like you tried poly before, but just had problems with jealousy. Part of the problem is that your ex and the other woman went behind your back, they should have come to you to let you know they were thinking of hooking up and wondered if that would be okay. Sometimes your trust can be damaged more by not being told than by anything else.

Anyway, take your time and read lots of stuff here on the forum. You'll soon find the answers that you need.
