I don't know how to do this...

I got divorced 2 years ago and it tore me apart. Now, I've been in a relationship for a year and I really loved this man. It just hasn't worked and he is leaving me. I have to live with him for 3 more weeks and I don't know how to deal with the pain. It's just too much. How do you deal with the pain of a breakup? I have no friends here to help get my mind off it... I want to be strong for my DD, but I can't even manage to focus on work right now... Somebody please advise!

  • oh mamma i'm sorry. I would just concentrate on my child and keep my self busy until the 3 weeks is up. I'm guessing the 3 weeks are a housing situation? Maybe you can go and stay with a relative?

  • Please go seek out counseling. There are many great counselors out there that would be able to help you get through this and have you be stronger in the long run. Your daughter will benefit from you being a stronger mommy. Good luck, I wish you the best.

  • I'd tell my work that it's an emergency and I have to go. I wouldn't stay there.

  • Yeah i would leave and not try to tuff that one out. The longer you stay the worst its gonna be. Leave and go be with ppl that care for you. It will get better. Just take this as a lesson learn.
