Ive been practicing detachment.
Its hasnt been easy.
He had a meeting today with the army.
He texted me after it saying that he was denied due to carpal tunnel surgeries he had on both of his hands.
(mind you, I told him NOT to have the surgeries done, as it didnt seem like he was at the point where surgery was necessary. After the surgeries, he was out of work for some time, on pain meds, which lead to yet another relapse) But anyway, thanks to the surgeries, they said no. (So he says - cant even be sure he actually went)
I sent a text in return saying I was sorry to here that and that I hope it does not discourage him from doing something to make his life better.
He responded back with - F you and F my mom! Im going on a blind date this weekend that my sisters have been trying to get me to go on for a long time now. Go to hell and stay out of my life.
My immediate reaction was to react and respond. But I understand that reacting is one of the things that co-dependents do too much. So I did nothing.
Im sad at the thought of him going out with someone else, but I know there is nothing I can do about it EXCEPT let him come home which is what he wants me to say out of fear of him moving on. However, thats not something I willing to do and certainly not for those reasons.
Oh well, time to read again
When will this get easier??????
