Hi Tinks72

All you can do is take a day at a time.  Baby steps in coming to terms with things.  Be kind to you.

Have you been in touch with your friends and family?

Hi Tinks72 welcome along to One Space Smile

Sorry to hear that your relationship has ended, it sure can be a real difficult time.  I hope that you are able to call on your family or friends for support!

sparklings suggestion of taking it a day at a time is a good one, you can also take a look at some of these articles others have found them helpful.

How are your children taking the break up?

Hi Tinks72, I hope you could sleep a bit. You gave up a lot to be with him, your family and friends...do you think you can move back and maybe even be with your parents or a friend for a while, until you recover a bit and you feel stronger again ? How mamny children do you have ? It is so hard to take care of others when you feel so low, but on this website you will find a lot of support

Hi all Thankyou so much for replying & caring..all my family are miles away I do speak to them on the phone but I can't afford to keep travelling down to them & they work so can't visit me very often at all

Even speaking on the phone can help so much though...

Hi Tinks72 and welcome from me too, when we split from our partner is can't be such a desperate and despairing time.

sparklinglime is right, you have to take baby steps and take each day at a time. Look after yourself. Do nice things for you, favourite food, TV show, treat yourself to a new duvet cover.

Have you seen your ex since he left?
