not chronic depression that requires medicine, but the after shock of something that affected you so deeply it caused you to feel depressed. do you sleep? eat? clean? run or walk? stuff it under the rug? a combination of it all? i am dealing with my husband's decision to be separated from me and the kids. it's only been two days but it's getting harder each day. despite all the harsh words we said and him not acting serious about changing himself, i actually miss him. i've been crying at the drop of a hat (im crying as i type this lol) and even in front of my kids. i can't control my emotions right now. then i start to feel like i should clean something but it's like i forgot my usual routine. i don't know where to start. it seems like a much bigger job than it used to be, like i can't handle it myself anymore. ive gone to the pool and park with my kids and that only temporarily stifles the emotions. it hits me like a mack truck when we get back to the house and his car isn't in the garage. i try to sleep it away but i can't sleep either. my friends are busy with work and live more than 30 minutes away, i can't afford the gas to go see them. my parents work during the day. i dont know how to handle this emotional rollercoaster, atleast for my kids' sakes.

It's just been two days, hardly enough time for it to even sink in. It's okay if all you can do is cry you are in shock and its completely understandable. Force yourself to get up each day and take care of your kids. Eventually you will be able to stop crying so easily and start planning and preparing for the future. I'm sorry you are having to deal with this..there really are no words right now that will help.
