    I last posted in Nov 2019, in the traumatic days surrounding leaving my soon to be ex husband (stbx). Just a brief update-
    Hardest bit was telling my adult daughters by letter. They were rocked to the core – but are supportive & recovering their equilibrium.

    Any contact with lawyers triggers my trauma. But has to be lived with. I want the divorce.

    No contact is wonderfully freeing.

    Walking daily is healing.

    I have a long way to go in recovery. Trauma lurks but I am not at all drawn to stbx – the Trauma Bond is broken & for that alone I am grateful. Good luck on your journeys. May we all find peace.

    So good to hear this. I took a step back from the divorce because the trauma was too much. Even seeing his name on paper was a trigger so pace yourself x

    Thanks you so much for posting this. I am very down today and your post is a reminder that I can get to the top of this mountain of woe and come out the other side to a bright happy place. Well done, you strong woman, and thanks you for telling us about your victory.
