I have been completely separated from my wife and two young children from Jan 2013 and then divorce on July 2015. I have grieved a massive amount the first year of the separation and more after the divorce was finalized. My self esteem has taken a major hit and my PTSD symptoms has kept me from pulling out of the grief. I have had short stints of time without grief but it does not last. I am doing my best to be positive and hopeful for the future but the grief makes it incredibly difficult. I realize it will take more time to heal but I really want to start living and all this time I have been just surviving. It is very similar to my growing up years where my PTSD originated. Does anyone have any tricks or suggestions to get through these difficult times?
