So we've been separated for several years and both moved on and shit but I need to just vent for two seconds to anyone who will listen and maybe not bitch at me about pronouns or trans rights. This is a 3 year outburst in the making please be kind
My ex wife is now a man. She was always trans, but she had pretty severe mental health issues and the doctors said that hormone therapy would only make it worse. 15 years and one baby later.... I decide to try to support her decision to hormonally transition... We were divorced less than a year later. Was it the only reason? Hell no. Was there blame on my side, hell yes. But the whole time my marriage was falling apart and I was losing my best friend I was ALSO watching my best friend turn into a stranger. This... Man... Took my wife's body and mind and everything and it's just gone.
We aren't in contact, he bailed on our kid... It ended badly.... But I looked at some pictures of him tonight and its like a fucking golem made of the clay of my dead wife. I hope he's happy but I feel like he murdered her. I carry her name on me still in tattoo. I always will. Cause the person I fought with and fucked with and lived with and made a baby with is dead and he's happier for it.
I'm melodramatic and sobbing right now for old hurts. I'm honestly in a better relationship now and healthier. My ex wife and I were both damaged children who couldn't learn to help ourselves. Now I'm a partner and a mother and overall happier. I just need to vent.
