I met and fell in love with my ex almost 10 years ago. He transferred to another state around the 3 year mark, and we stayed together long distance. He transferred again to Tennessee 3 years ago. I gave up my life and moved the 600 miles to be with him 2 1/2 years ago. I got a new (much lower paying) job. He got sent on a special project out of state 6 months ago, and then dumped me 2 months ago. He says 75% of our relationship is great, but we are lacking the 25% based on intimacy. The only friend that I am out to in my neighborhood is moving at the end of the month. I think my ex is seeing someone, and may have wanted to be with him while we were still together. Over Valentines weekend, he went to Mardi Gras with this guy, who by the way is married with kids. I can't sleep at night because I dream of them together. I can barely function during the day because everything reminds me of him, and what I've lost. I want to end it, but I'm a coward. I use my dogs as an excuse to keep going. I don't know what to do. I called the suicide hotline and got put on hold (not a joke). If I can find a home for my babies that will love them as much as I do, I can get up the courage to do what I need to do.
