When our closest and dearest ones betray us, it can feel almost physically painful. Our story today is about a woman who knows this pain all too well, having been repeatedly subjected to her husband’s deceitful behavior. She wrote us a heartfelt letter, sharing her emotional journey and expressing her deep regret for forgiving him and offering support during his darkest times. Let’s delve into her story.

Donna wrote us a deeply emotional letter.

Donna, 35, found herself in a complicated life situation that deeply affected her emotional well-being. Seeking advice from our readers, she shared her story in a heartfelt letter, each word a genuine cry for help. Donna began her letter by saying, “Hi, Now I’ve Seen Everything! I had been living a very happy life and couldn’t even imagine, until recently, that I would face such a trashy and hurtful situation in my marriage. My story may sound unbelievable, and to some point I also refused to believe that my husband, the man whom I believed I knew completely and whom I trusted so much, would turn into an embodiment of evil to me.”

Donna shared, “My husband Derek and I have been happily married for over 10 years now. We have 2 kids, a big and comfortable house and a good family income. We had been enjoying our happy life together, until one day, that showed Derek’s true face to me and left me in such a big shock.”

The woman continued, “Everything began with an ordinary business trip. Derek works a lot, and he travels a lot for work, it’s normal in our family that he’s absent most of the time. This time it was no different, he left on a work trip, and I helped him pack his things, drove him to the airport and kissed him goodbye, as usual. He asked me to call him as often as I can and said that he would miss me badly.”

During a routine business trip, something went terribly wrong.

The woman continues her story by stating, “After he left, I called him multiple times. It has been a normal thing in our family that I called him not once, but around 3–5 times a day, just to find out if he was okay and ask him what he was up to. This time, I decided to do this, too, but, to my shock, he didn’t answer to my multiple calls.”

Donna became concerned for her husband. She revealed, “Immediately, my brain pictured the worst-case scenario and I started freaking out. I tried to message him many times, and I saw that he read my messages, but he didn’t reply to them. I saw that he was online, and this both made me mad and calmed me down a little, because I still had hope that he was fine. Imagine my shock, when a few days later I received a call from the police, who informed me that my husband had been in a car accident and was being airlifted to a hospital.”

Donna made a disturbing discovery when she hurried to the hospital to check on her husband.

Donna shared, “So I rushed to the hospital and Derek went into surgery. He had broken so many bones in his body. He then came out of surgery but didn’t wake up, and the doctors discovered that he had many strokes and an extremely traumatic brain injury.” Doctors told Donna they were uncertain if her husband would ever wake up and couldn’t guarantee a full recovery even if he did.

The woman wrote, “I was totally overwhelmed by guilt, I was worried that Derek may have been texting me when he got into an accident, and I just didn’t see his messages, because I was offended by his silence. So, I decided to check his phone to find out. Immediately, a conversation popped up between my husband and another woman on some social network account, where he went under a different name. He did travel a lot for work, so there were all these women all over his phone.”

Donna continued, “Additionally, Derek had been using many dating apps under this false name. I was so conflicted, because the kids still needed their dad, and he was in this position. Moreover, you can’t just fall out of love with someone immediately. That’s why I decided to stay by his side despite everything.”

Another disappointment soon followed.

Donna revealed, “Derek woke up after 40 days in a coma. Shortly after, I confronted him about his infidelity in the hospital. I showed him a picture of one of the women and asked, ’Who is this?’ Derek was still very disoriented and didn’t give me the right answer. As time went on, he finally confessed to cheating on me. He apologized and swore he would never do it again. Given our difficult situation, I decided to stay by his side while he recovered. I helped him learn to eat, walk, and use his phone again, only for him to start talking to other women once more.”

The woman wrote, “Derek had to attend a rehabilitation center every day to help him in his recovery. Since it was out of state, I could only visit him on the weekends. One day, while I was visiting him, I went through his phone, again, because I was clearly unable to trust him so quickly again. And I discovered that he was still in communication with all these women.”

Donna explained, “My husband doesn’t even try to hide it anymore. I don’t know if it’s due to his severe brain injury, which makes him unaware, or if he simply believes he doesn’t need to hide it. I’m at a loss for what to do now. His judgment is clearly impaired by his condition, and that might be influencing his actions. But I feel deeply hurt and can’t stop thinking about divorce. What should I do?”

And here’s yet another dramatic story of a woman who overheard a secret conversation between her husband and his female coworker.

Go on with the divorce.. He cheated before and he will not change. Also it´s good for your kids to see how you help him it would also be good if they see that nobody has to live this way. You´re a mom. You should show your kids that it´s important to take care of yourself/themselfes and that love and trust should be the right way. Also it´s not good for your menatl health if you stay with him. He don´t respect you
