    Thank you for years ur help. Due to my mental health issues my wife left me after 13 yes together
    I miss her dearly and understand she couldn't cope with my mood swings.
    I pray she is happy even though I'm am slowly being torn apart by my own personal torture
    I have key workers who help me through weekly sessions but that doesnt take away the anguish

    Hi @Ronrich_1
    I'm so sorry to hear about your experience. Are you in contact with her at all? Also, it's great that you are getting some help (the key workers) and I hope they will end up helping you.
