I can barely make it through work without crying.
It's gonna be tough... Real tough. Take it one day at a time, then one week at a time and after a few months you will start feeling better. We sat down together with our kids and explained to them what was happening. They were 11 and 8 at the time. It didn't work out for us as far as staying together but, we do get along better now than ever. I do consider her a close friend and someone I can talk to about anything. Most important though is we still work together raising our boys. Our sons both know that they can't get away with anything because their mom and dad are in constant communication about them.
Hang in there man. One way or another, things WILL get better.
