Loneliness

I am so desperately lonely I feel like it's kill me or I wish it would just kill me. I am going through a divorce which is very hostile. My husband has spread terrible lies about me. He accused me of physically assaulting him after our youngest went away to school. Complete fabrications. I've explained to my children that these are lies. They say they believe me, I hope they do. I never hit my children and I am not a violent person. But my extended family does not live close. I have job that I hate. I work 6 days a week for 10-11 hours a day. A long commute. I come home from work, have a frozen dinner, go to sleep and start over again. I see my son Ryan once every week or two. My friends are not much for going out. I feel very alone. I would go on a dating website but the medication I am on for depression has made me gain 35 pounds in the last few months. Does anyone have advice for me?

My advice is to take a breath. I think that being overwhelmed is like a snowball, growing and growing. Regret, guilt, and other anxiety builders are best handled by doing only what you can do. Eating an elephant is what I see it as. I know I have to take one bite at a time. Friends are good, a new relationship can wait. A little extra weight is fine, as long as you are taking care of yourself.

I am so sorry for what you are going through, dear girl. You sound like you might be a victim of narcissistic abuse by the sounds of what your husband is doing. Why is it that you can only see your son once every week or 2?
