Since many of you already know, due to days of soul-searching and internal debate, but--
Dave and I are back together.
Yeah. Some of ya didn't see THAT coming, huh?
Let's just say that a phone call to get the rest of my stuff turned into a reconciliation.
He's a big butt sometimes, but hey --so am I. ;) And I love him, very much. And we've both changed a lot in the last few months. He's been reading up on BP (a plus by itself) and vows to stand by me, good AND bad. He'll be there during the "episodes" and more importantly, he wants to be actively involved to prevent us from getting to that stage, as much as possible. Did he handle this whole thing perfectly? Hell no. But this is a big deal and if he needed a couple months to adjust to the news, so be it. Furthermore, he said he wanted to make sure I was getting help for ME, and not for him--and I believe him (because I know myself). I was hesitant at first, and more than a little sad to give up my yummy Former Marine (who was quite understanding)--but I do believe that we're coming back together stronger than ever before.
And if I'm wrong? Well, you can bet that I'm keeping FM on speed dial. ;)
And a special shout-out to the Girl Tribunal. ;)
