January 2018, accepted an internship at STC Biologics in Newton MA....yeah that is a loooooong commute but the money was decent.
June 2018, became a full-time employee at STC. Most days the work is very interesting and engrossing, but it can be VERY stressful at times, especially when deadlines are coming up and cells aren't coorperating.
December 2018, got started on my Bastet arm tattoo.
January 2019 - life goes to hell in a hand-basket. Husband tells me that he is moving out, we have been married 17 years. Said that there isn't anyone else, but that he wasn't the same person that he was when we met 20 years ago and that he didn't know who he was anymore and needed to find out.
We had still been talking and, I thought, had some very nice conversations, as friends, I made sure to not talk about "us" at all since he said that he needed time. Here I was thinking that maybe he would need 6 months to a year and then maybe we could see if we could start over...yeah....that didn't happen.
Yesterday (March 13) I get a text from him basically saying that he wants out. He is supposed to come by to talk on Saturday, but it looks like he is shopping for divorce lawyers. While at the moment I can afford all my bills, there is no way that I can afford a lawyer, and my car needs 13k in repairs to keep it running....so....yeah. I will be trying to get a GoFundMe up and running to see if maybe family and the few friends that I have left can help me out a bit.....I really hate asking for help.....but I can't see any way out of this without help....
Sorry for my rant......hopefully things will get better.....will take me a long time to heal.
