      Today has been (detail removed by Moderator) since I left him. I’m unemployed, disabled and homeless and I feel so b****y lonely. I’ve reached out to a few old friends over the past few weeks but I feel like I can’t really pop back into their lives and unload all my drama on to them. I’m desperate for someone to talk to about everything that has and is currently going on, but it’s a lot and I don’t want to feel like a burden. It still hasn’t really hit me yet that my relationship is over, but I’m slowly starting to process everything (including coming to terms with the fact that the relationship was abusive) and my brain just will not shut off. Does it get better?

      Hi foolishartist666,

      Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing with us how you feel.

      I’m sorry that you’re feeling so low and lonely. It was really strong of you to reach out to some of your old friends, that’s not an easy thing to do. Domestic abuse can be so isolating and if they can understand what you’ve been going through, it will make sense to them why you were absent for a while. I hope you find the forum to be a place where you can share support with others who understand and that that helps you feel less alone with it all.

      Take care and keep posting,
      Lisa
