After reading some posts recommending some self help books I decided to go for 2.
The first one I picked seemed quite popular among this community, it''s called Runaway Husbands by Vikki Stark. After reading the first chapter I though OMG that''s me! I can''t wait to read more.
The second one is called Getting Past Your Breakup by Susan J. Elliott, I hope it''s just as good.
I got them from Amazon at £21.33 for the 2 including shipping.

Runaway Husbands is amazing. I''m reading it as well and it really does make you realise that you''re not going mad and that so many other women go through the same experience. I''m also reading ''Rebuilding when your relationship ends'' which is also really helpful.
Happy reading and good luck!

That said its made me feel human and normal for the first time in a very long while and can see how pointless and futile my efforts have been my stbx left our marriage a long time ago. But i feel stronger now and ready for our finance meeting... bring it on ;)

I''m now half way through Runaway Husbands & chapter 3 has left the greatest impression on me so far. I just couldn''t get my head around how everything happened so fast but now I realise it was only me that felt like that.
Understanding that has answered the "why" question for me :)

I & totally agree with your comment about it making me feeling stronger.

I agree with your comment as well & will check out your recommended book.
