Nothing is working to feel better.
Welcome to Beyond Blue and well done for reaching out.
I am so sorry for what you have been through with the separation from your wife, and the fact that she moved onto someone else so quickly. I too would not be able to take someone back in that situation because it would feel like betrayal.
When my husband and I separated, after 12 years of marriage, it took him just six weeks before he found a new partner, and she moved in quite quickly. Into the home that he and I had shared and created all our memories in ..... into the bed we shared and into his life as though I had never even been there.
It's great that you are going to the gym, and still spending time with your children. Those things are so important. May I also suggest though that you perhaps consider talking to a counselor and/or your doctor about what has happened, and maybe getting yourself some additional help and support while you navigate your way to a life that you hadn't planned for.
Anyway, I do hope that you start to feel better soon. And feel free to keep posting here. We are here for you. Take care. xo
I'm really sorry for what you are going through. I hear you about the wait time for a counselor. If you have the means/funds, do you think you could look at online counselling? I could not wait 12 weeks for an appointment so I engaged with a counselor online and I feel that it is helping me through my darkest times. Good luck and big hugs
