What did you do to help the pain and try to get over it?

Recommended Posts

I am reading all these posts by people saying will this ever end, what can I do?


I'm 15 months into it and this is what I did:


I layed in bed paralyzed in disbelief.

I talked all my friends's ears off about it. Probably drove them all mad.

I cried and cried and cried and cried........

I screamed into my pillow, and when i was driving down the road.

I cried some more.....

I gave away all my possessions and sold my house and moved away, to go live with my friends, so i wouldn't be alone.

I still cried......

I moved to a friendly, crazy little town in Montana, where everyone is friendly and your friend.

I went to the bar there alot, and drank ice water, and talked to everyone.

I got massages, reiki treatments, acupuncture, light therapy treatments,for a broken heart.

I had counseling all winter.

I read Eat,Love, Pray.

I took vitmin E.

I prayed constanty.

I said tons of affirmations.

I cried some more, missed him terribly, longed for him.

I wrote a few emails and letters. Broke down once and made him a hat and sent it to him. No responses.

I went on little dates, that just made me sadder.

I cried some more.

I returned to the town I ran away from 2 months ago. That was a hard drive back. I cried the whole day and a half.

I spent a day reading about healing your broken heart on the internet and learned alot.

I ate alot of chocolate and ice cream.

I had a crazy one night stand one time only, and we made believe we just got married. i said crazy.

I released him to his highest good, and said i was free now, the whole day and a half drive back to Oregon.

I walked the length of the street we loved to hang out on, and released him to his highest good. I did that in our favorite resturant too.

I finally saw him when he came to see me, with the woman he dumped me for.

I relasped bad and cried some more.

It hurt like hell to see him, but it is helping me to be in the present finally.

I am still really lonely, and really want someone, But I think I am getting better all the time. I am not obsessing about him all the time, or crying all the time.

I am trying to meet guys online. It is hard, but I think it might be gaining momentum I hope.

Today, i dyed my hair dark brown with a purple sheen. That helped.

And you know in 15 minutes I might be crying again. And I still don't know why I had to go through all this.


The main lesson I have learned is: I don't let people walk all over me anymore. I take red flag warning signs very seriously. Not only with men, but with friends too, woman and men. There are plenty of people out there who will treat you good.
