I wonder, is there really a life after divorce.... at the moment I just feel so empty, like what IS the point... Dont worry, I'm not suicidal or anything. Just emotionally and physically wrecked.

Why does my man, the love of my life, want me to divorce him. Because I wont send my daughter to live elsewhere and I have been given a choice her or me.... why would someone do that! Oh god, my first day on here and I am rambling. I am so unhappy and having rouble holding it together at work and for my kids.

Someone PLEASE PLEASE tell me it gets easier

Oh my I have seen some stories on here and have been through my own story and came out the other side. Yes it does get better you just cannot see it at the start. However fella or child no real decision there in my book how any one could ask a mother to make that choice is beyond me. Tell him to sling his hook you will find someone who will love you and your daughter there should be no conditions in love. Andy

Hi

It will get easier i'm sure , there are going to be some up's and some down's.You are at the start of the journey and that right now is a tough place to be , and more so for being made to choose :angry:can't believe someone could do that.There's always people here if you need a chat or alittle bit of support you are not alone.

Bridget,
Coming up to halfway house myself, 1 year on. Yes, it does get better, little by little.

There is a big emotional rollercoaster that throws you up and down and all around, but as Angel says - come to wikivorce and let it all out - there is always someone here to lend a sympathetic ear or shoulder to cry on.

Be strong - your daughter needs you.

Take care

Mike

Thanks everybody - you seem like a friendly bunch and it is nice to know i am not alone. Just reading other posts has helped and I can see you do get stronger as time goes on.

I write a journal (hence the user name) and think i may transfer it on here as a blog - more for my therapy I suppose.

I look forward to getting to know you all, I guess a few lonely hours will be spent on here over the next few months.
