    Pax, I would bring you guys the warmest most comforting casserole dinner if only I could. I am really sorry. You will get through to the other side of this.

    Dear mother,

    Yes, I know my knee hurts. I do have some idea what caused it, and it should be relatively easily rectified. (By a new bike--seriously, this is the cost-effective solution. Full 105 would cost me around $1300. New drivetrain and shifters would constitute a significant fraction of that. Owing to where I work, I can get a very significant discount on a full-carbon frame with Ultegra for around $1500.)

    Telling me to just stop riding is not helpful. I'll just stick with new pedals and shoes right now, as the fitter suggested.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Owlie, ignore your mother. We can be annoying.
    Seriously, I can't count how many medical professionals have told me this in the past 12 years, even ones who are cyclists. People can't see beyond their own solutions.

    Dear Husband,

    You really want to throw away our 9 year relationship (on our anniversary/my birthday!) and you don't even have a reason why? You couldn't even wait until my son whom you raised finished his senior year of High School? I gave you the best years of my life, and now I am middle aged and you are still a young man who can start over and have a new family. This is so painful and I have no one to lean on here and you know it. My heart is breaking.

    SO sorry, Scrappy. I can't believe anyone would do something so cruel to someone they supposedly love(d), on such a day in particular! Wish I were there to be a friend to you -- I could use one right now myself!

    Virtual hugs to you...

    (((Scrappy))). That's just awful. I'm truly sorry. Please know that your TE sisters are here for you.

    What the--who does that?! That's terrible!

    (((Scrappy))) again, because I can't think of anything else to say that doesn't contain interesting language.

    this is probably the wrong thing to say, but, I hope you move on to anger soon, because just being mad at the jerk, and not sad, is what he deserves.

    Thank You So MUCH ladies of TE. I am so sad right now. I can feel your collective hugs and I am just very grateful. My family is 1/2 a country away in WA state and all I want to do is hug someone and cry.. {sob}

    That's probably the reason. His biological clock may have just gone off - and he now wants biologically related offspring. I've heard multiple such stories passed along in my circle of friends. There are guys who've been happy as a clam in child free long term relationships - who suddenly broke it off, and six months later are married and the new wife is already expecting.
