Oh C' Gal,
I am so sorry for the pain you are feeling. My heart aches for you.
From my experience....separation, divorce and the resulting pain it causes our children, is very difficult to deal with. I learned the hard way that "ignoring it" and the "stiff upper lip" approach is not the way to go. My case differs in that my ex-husband was abusive; however, the feeings of guilt and failure are the same. I moved to a new city to give my son a fresh start. He is doing much better since we are away from the constant abusive behavior which continued after the divorce. He still suffers occasionally from anxiety (my son is 10).
If I could redo my situation, I would begin therapy immediately.......for my son and me. I am about
to start a support class for divorcees. This particular class is hosted by one of the larger Churches in my community and is
open to anyone in need. They also have classes for children.
I hope this helps a little. Oh .......I am taking wellbutrin and trazedone. This combination is helping me but It is my experience that you have to try several before finding the right mix.
Please let me know if I can help......
God, Please Grant Me,
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The Courage to change the things that I can,
and The Wisdom to know the difference……….Just for Today
