When we first seperated I found my Turbo button. Sleep was the worst part and I often ended up on the sofa. Then slowly I crawled back to the education system, work and church. Suddenly things were placed in my path which meant those big gaps, weren’t really big gaps at all and it didn’t hurt so much.
It’s not easy – and after 3 years I don’t find it any easier – harder if anything! I try to keep busy (an ongoing house renovation helps a little!) and getting out of the house helps too, as then I’m not seeing my boy’s toys and stuff everywhere as a reminder he’s not there.
Hope you can find something to help you fill the hours and keep your mind busy.
Thanks Enoughisenough89. This morning was a real low point for me. I’m off work with depression from all this so I dusted myself off, went for a jog and spent about two hours ironing to distract me. I’m picking him up from school today so we spend a few hours together before I lose him until Friday. Keeping busy helped a good deal 🙂
Well done for getting out for a jog! That’s a really good start – getting yourself out the house when you’ve got depression is a toughie, I know it well! Try and make some weekend plans – even if it’s cooking lunches for the week or getting out for a walk with a pal, if you can. I definitely find having a schedule of stuff to do keeps me from going nuts!
