    Default So we finally broke up...

    My partner and I finally broke up tonight. She doesn't feel the same towards me any more. It's been a long time coming but it still hurts an awful lot. I have no idea what I'm going to do, I'm in NZ...so far from my home in the UK. I can't cope on my own even though I only work part time. I can't afford to live and pay medical bills alone. I don't know what to do. She's offered just to move in to the spare room and still help me out with cooking, shopping etc...but I don't know if I could handle that - I still love her.
    I was already at rock bottom when this happened, struggling a lot with depression. Feeling beyond low now. I want to curl up in a ball and pretend it isn't happening but I can't.

    Hugs. I know break ups are hard. I used to be married, and my husband and I had a lovely little house, and... I had to move out and live in a sketchy one-room studio. So emotional and practical troubles just piling up.

    If you're able to find some sort of free/low cost counseling for this time, I'd advise it. I saw a counselor after my divorce, and I see one now to deal with chronic illness. It just sort of helps to have someone help me process the low points.

    I wish I could say something to make it better, but I know there is nothing I can say. Only time heals. But hugs from afar, Shine.

    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    Oh I am so very sorry! My heart hurts for you. There are many here that have been through what you are going through and they will most likely have better advice but I can tell you about the money part. It looks hopeless now. I know. I have been there. My daughter and I lived on $300 a month for almost 9 months after I lost my job. I knew we wouldn't make it. We did. You will also but the emotional and mental stress is hard and I am not taking that away from you.

    please know we are here for you as you go through this. We are family

    Sorry that you're going through this. Break-ups are difficult, whether you were the one who initiated it, or not.

    I hope things get worked out for you soon.
