It was hard to concentrate or even function.
It was hard to fall asleep at night, hard to pay attention at work, and no matter what I did to try and distract myself, the sheer panic and chaos followed me around all the time.
Oh my god. I have no idea what do to. Will I ever get through this?
I have no idea where I’m going to be in a month, much less a year. How the hell can I plan for anything?
Everything is crumbling around me and I’m terrified.
Divorce is one of the most stressful life events that a person experiences. One of the main reasons it’s such a nightmare is because it somehow manages to hold us hostage with stress and fear. It makes us unable to move, to think, to function. You don’t know what’s going to happen to us, our kids, and our way of life, and you think you’ll never make it through or be happy again.
