Devastated due to husband leaving me

Community Member
My husband left me with no warning just over a week ago. I am an empty shell struggling every minute of the day. I have a disabled adult daughter and I’m am trying to keep it together in front of her but it’s exceedingly difficult. I have zero support. I just need someone to talk to

My husband did the exact same late last year and I know how you feel.
I have 2 teenage boys.
It has been so hard and some days are good and some days are shit! No other way to describe it.
Every one is here to offer support and a place we can listen to you.
Can you seek some help from a counsellor. I find this helps me
