I had low expectations, but not THAT low. My H promised he would call or text last night and swore up & down he wouldn He't disappoint. Of course he didn't! When he realized that (which was at that point technically this morning) he sent this text:

Great! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I mucked it up! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Is he serious? I just replied with "Well, I'm glad you're so smiley about it". His response was about how much money he made and how great that was. I just said something like, "I'm glad that makes YOU feel better". He said it takes time. I said no, calls/texts are not something that you learn to do since he already knows how and uses it with plenty of other women, I expected him to follow through with his promise at least on this. So I called him (BIG MISTAKE) - he told me he was in the middle of typing a love letter text to send to me and he would send it in about 5 minutes. Then proceeded to inform me that he deserves better than I'm offering! I couldn't believe it! (MISTAKE #2) I should have - he's become mean and verbally abusive when drunk these days.

I just told him that I feel like he should want to talk to me without being asked or cajoled. I told him that I shouldn't always be told that I'm not good enough. He sent a text saying he was going to bed, instead of my love letter. I asked if that was the love letter, and he said "could've been". I told him that saying something kind to your wife isn't a pawn used in a game - it is serious and I am very hurt that he couldn't say one nice thing to me after not following through on his promise to me.

I was up crying from 3:30-5 this morning. I am so fed up - I don't deserve this. I am heartbroken ... there is nothing more I can do.
