      Recently went to court for my divorce on grounds of unreasonable behaviour. Granted without any problem or changes for my children. Friends say I should be celebrating but from the moment I read through my statement with the barrister, I feel numb.
      I’m going through the motions at work and home. But I don’t feel like doing anything, connecting with anyone. I just feel blank.
      Has anyone else felt like this?

      Hey Hun

      I think at each stage of when we move on people expect us to be happy and over moon, but we r grieving for what they did to us, take each day slowly,if u need to cry, cry , cry for what he did and cry out of happiness that u managed to get away from him, stay strong it will get better in time

      My family court hearings were traumatic and abusive. They were nightmares. They were pure institutionalised abuse. I tried to remain strong. Inside I was dead for a long time already.

      Ugh, yeah, dealing with the legal side is horrid. I’m learning to expect pretty much any emotion when I’m moving it along. I’m just about to file my divorce – so far I’ve had anger (was shaking with it), uncontrollable crying, a weird set of physical sensations, elation and a very strange feeling that I’m not in my body. Can’t wait for it to be done with.
