It takes time, boring but true. About a month for the really vile stuff to feck off, and a full 6 months as a rule for all pain to vanish (I've done this 3 times, same every time sad)

Create a new life for yourself, it's very diverting. My life is completely loopy now, and I love it, it's like my consolation prize for having been so fecking sad.

I don't think a month is that long to start feeling better?
And when I say 6 months, I mean, when you think about it, there's no pain at all, not even when you really think about it.
How long did you think it would take? Not a loaded question, just curious.

Everyone's different btw, maybe I'm just slow ;)

god, I wouldn't say you're slow, picmaestress, it took me a year to get to that point (but that was after 11y with the sod in qu - does longevity of relationship make a difference to recovery time? Or am I just a feeble weeble?)

SolidGhoulBrass Tue 06-Oct-09 00:57:00

I have heard a theory that recovery takes a month for every year of the relationship. Personally I think this is bullshit, sometimes the end of a relationship is a cause for relief and joy. But no matter how much it hurts now, it will get better.
He's obviously a knob who didn't deserve you KM <proffers virtual gin and cake>.

Oh KM sad so sorry to hear this. You don't know me, but I was hugging myself when I 'heard' you'd met someone smile

But maybe we'll see a bit more of you back on here now? wink
