I can relate to so many things in this article, such as thinking that I was losing my memory, the isolation, losing my friends, letting go of myself, not knowing myself anymore, the loneliness, how he would say that he couldn’t sleep or work because he couldn’t stop thinking about me and that would make me feel guilty, and more. Three different stories from three different survivors and I can see myself in all three stories to a more or lesser degree. We all seem to share similar experiences. If you doubt it, please, read. You are not going crazy and you’re not alone.

Sometimes, I can’t help but find myself asking the same question over and over again, “How did I get here?” It is a dangerous thing to do, if I am not in a certain emotional state.

Today was a very hard day for me. I could not shake the image of my daughter crying out of my mind no matter what I would try. The small sense of victory from yesterday was squashed by her departure this morning.
I found an article that reflects exactly how I’m feeling these days. I am copying some points that express how I have been feeling all along my divorce case.

I wanted to write last week. But I could not find the energy. It proved to be a very difficult week to me.
