Divorce is not easy to go through for many people.
Your life has come apart at the seams and the flood of emotions are very difficult for you to deal with. There are many ways of dealing with divorce and the depression that comes along with it. One thing that is very important in these trying times is a good support network. I hid my depression for years and yet I sat at home crying. The tears of a clown, that was me.
One thing that is very important in dealing with the depression brought on by divorce is do not be afraid to talk as your feelings do need to come out..
One thing that you may have to realize is the fact that the healing process is a time consuming process. It is natural to feel conflicting emotions at this time after all you were in love at one time with your ex spouse and so it is natural to feel abandonment, hate, love all at the same time. One very important item here and it is the most important item to realize is simply this. You will not get over all of these feelings over night, it will take time as getting divorced is like a death in the family, as such there is a grieving process that you will go through..
May I suggest you make an appointment with your PCP and tell him/her how you are feeling. Consider going to counseling as it is something just for you and you may find great comfort in a one to one situation. Be your own best advocate.
Each person moves through the loss of a marriage in their own way and in their own time frame. Keep in mind that divorce depression is temporary, and that eventually, you will heal.
Laugh often, Dream big, Reach for the stars! You are going to be OK.
