Sorry, C. I had composed a brilliant answer to this one, when "|pling !" the electricity went out, switched off by the City Council for the second time in a week, for the frivolous reason that they were cutting trees somewhere in the neighbourhood,and they were in too much of a hurry to warn us.
SO now I can't remember what the previous brilliant answer was.
Finding out about the other relationship and the other kids must have been very painful for you. What may have happened since then may be that, in a sense, your emergency response, adopted to limit the emotional pain then, rather got stuck, and may have prevented you both from feeling some positive emotions fully, and may also have prevented you from feeling so me of the sadness that might have been apt and useful. Its useful to be able to avoid being devastated by mean people and bad news ; but not useful to be too numb to such things, as it impairs your ability to cope best with them. Counselling would be useful, if you can find an affordable counsellor near you.
