Mine seems to be more helpful.  He checks in a bit more and seems a bit more like his old self.  We will see if that lasts.  He’s still on the negative side on everything he says about anything.

Married 19 years
Husband is 42
I am 39

BD1-April 2018-Unrecognized by me until way later, he is unhappy, wants counseling.
BD2-October 2018-ILYBNIL, wants a divorce, this after I found out about OW 1(EA), OW2(PA) no longer together.  I believe he is single. 
April 2019 He got an apartment and moved out.
Oct 2019-Apologized for a years worth of monster behavior.  Still wants to start divorce this Spring, is distant, but friendly.  Tries more with kids, but mostly just helps haul them around(superficial).

4 kids 5-15 years

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

My H is fluctuating....

He is in high risk but says he has to work. As self employed, most of that is actually isolatory in that he designs in his own studio rather than builds. And so far, his contact with other people in the business chain, so to speak, is minimal.

He is conscious of the need for caution but said yesterday that he would still go to meetings and if he got it, then so be it.  I remarked that it was ok for him to be ill but it was not ok for him to "knowingly" infect others  if he suspected he was ill.  It would be an irresponsible decision.  He paused, nodded and said " Hmm ok"

Hmmm ok! ::) ::) ::) ::)

How MLCers react to Coronavirus.....?
#13: March 19, 2020, 03:14:43 PM
Mine is freaking out, he had a heart attack 1.5 years ago (at 48!) the boys and I have it and are in quarantine. We were together at a doctors appointment for S15 a week ago Monday so MLCer is freaking out - he spent two days trying to sort the timeline, testing, doctors appointments - not to help us, but because he was so upset he could get it. He has checked in a bunch with the boys and even offered to drop supplies on our doorstep - when I said it%u2019s nice he is checking in to the boys, the both looked at me and said, mom, because it%u2019s all about him. We%u2019re sick and he%u2019s worried about himself. Jaw dropping insight from the boys%u2019 mouths.

US. Seattle. Ground zero. About 15 miles from the first case in the US, and about 12 miles from the nursing home where more than 20 people have died.

My oldest son and his fiancé are in quarantine downtown but have no symptoms. S15 had a couple days where he was coughing, mild sore throat but that’s it, S14 is on day three of fevers, and about day five of sore throat, coughing, body aches, headaches, I am on day 9, the headaches are horrific, coughing, body aches, fever, sore throat - so far none of us in respiratory distress. We’ll ride it out. Thanks for asking ❤️

3boys - also wishing your family quick and complete recovery.

As far as thread -I have no idea.
(x)H has not reached out at all.
S18 and I had to cancel our trip for spring break to Iceland 2 days before departure.
I spent over 35 hours on hold...

I imagine (x)H is bonding with GF as I heard a rumor that she was a suspect for covid.
Both being healthcare workers, not good...

I would love to hear from him, would love a little compassion towards me and S18.
I've been thinking about him a lot lately, but this pandemic probably won't bring him toward me at the current time.
Sadly...
