On Tuesday, October 26, at approximately 10:15 am, I discovered that my lover/boyfriend/best friend had been having a sexual relationship with another woman for eighteen months. The shock was extreme: I could have more easily accepted a diganosis of a terminal disease, because although I know that I will eventually die, I never doubted his devotion or love, through the long journey we had been through together, spanning many years, and his consistent message of undying love, commitment, passion and devotion demonstrated to me on a daily basis.
This Tuesday morning discovery has been the single most devastating event of my life, and I am writing about this in an attempt to heal, and in honor of every other person on the planet who has ever experienced this type of betrayal.
I am so grateful for the outpouring of love and support from my family and friends who have not left my side since Tuesday morning.
Blessings to you all.
