Hello I'm not sure where else to turn. I'll try to keep it short. Me and my gf of 4 Years split. It's been an up and down battle for the last month but just last week she confirmed there is no chance anymore. I'm really having a hard time dealing with anxiety in my chest and the sadness. My mind is constantly racing with thoughts and unanswered questions. Trying to see a counselor near me is about a month wait and I can't wait that long.

Yes the racing thoughts are the hardest. I take something for anxiety that helps my PTSD and my anxiety. And I also distract my mind and dive into my routine each day to keep my mind busy.

What's up Kyle? I haven't been in a relationship in a long time. The last one was a bad ending, and actually a rough middle. There was a baby involved, which turned out not to be mine. Also there were lies and manipulation. The whole thing sucked, and even worse after.

Anyway the first thing that comes to mind is to talk about and get involved with things you like. So find some people with similar interests and start talking. For me movies that really click and are a good distraction help. But other things that are more involved could be better. For the racing thoughts, try doing exercise in the morning. It gets your endorphins going and makes me feel better. My mood for the rest of the day seems more balanced when I do.

What are some of your interests and hobbies? What music, movies, and tv shows are you into? What are things you would like to do but haven't yet? Also what possible dreams would you enjoy pursuing?

Hi cosmic, thank you for sharing part of your story and im sorry for what you had gone through. You see my biggest road block right now is my job. I am a truck driver so for 11 hours a day all I do is think and think and think. Response to your question, I can't seem to keep plans with anyone and I don't know why. I get hyped about going out then when the time comes I bail. Never been like that since this all started.

I Need to find some sort of a hobby because I feel like this hole just keeps getting deeper. Again thank you
