Wow, your QUESTION actually really moved me. I think you are already on the road to recover hun. Because that is really the KEY, loving yourself. I know with me, I had to do a lot of soul searching and rediscovering ME. And I learned a LOT. You leaving the bad marriage took a lot of strength, that I am sure. And you are so much stronger than you know you are. Sorry, I don't have books to recommend. But I've been in your shoes so I can tell you that things do get better with time and you are going the right direction. Hang in there.
