I just couldn't imagine it, if you know what that feels like? Anyways, last night I went over to his apartment and I cried and begged for him to take me back and he comforted me, just kind of held me wrapped up in the sofa blankets while I carried on and then he told me that he'd, "give it another shot, however useless it may be, if you will keep sober." Do you think there is any chance of repairing our marriage or was he just feeling bad for me?

A pile of blankets sobbing is not in the least attractive. You are the type of woman a man wants to run far away from. The best thing you can do for your self esteem is to tell him sorry, you realized after last night that you are not the woman you want to be when you are with him and tell him you need to cut things off with him. Then to whatever extent your drinking is problematic, find whatever way is going to work for you to fix it. Not for him but for you, because I don't think you want to be that woman wrapped in blankets begging for the attentions of someone who is treating you as some kind of prison he'll try to deal with.

Officers said Pickering told them that he then shot her. She said “Oh, God,” after the first shot, dropping down, according to the complaint. Then he shot her again. “He said that he was very upset with the girl coming to his house,” the charges say, “and that he had a lot of thoughts racing through his mind as he was walking towards his home.” [ Reply | More ]
