At the divorce care class last night I was describing the way I'm a rollercoaster, some days I do ok and others I am really depressed. And my happy moments aren't truly happy. Like a dark cloud is permeating everything. Like even the things that give me joy, the joy isn't really joyful now. It's just not the same and hasn't been for a long while. Before I was in a relationship with my husband 7 years ago I was fine. In fact I had been single 16 years and hadn't really dated and did not see marriage in my future, and when people would say when I meet the right one I will change my mind I thouht they were being ridiculous.
Things that brought me joy really brought me joy back then. Then when my husband appeared it was like a miracle.
Now I don't know when I will get that joy back. One of the other ladies in the DivorceCare group agreed and said it was like having a wet blanket on you all the time. Also for me having someone next to me skin to skin, toes on toes at times, the intimacy we shared and all the things I shared in a way I hadn't with anyone else before, and gave myself completely to him. I'm not talking about just sex. In the hospitals they have preemie babies held skin to skin because it helps them. I think the relationship you have with your spouse is the only other way to get this. God isn't going to do this, your dogs aren't going to do it, nothing, absolutely nothing, replaces that special relationship with a spouse. And then to have it shattered. It's hard to go backwards.

I have been divorced since 2005 from the 2nd husband... I finished raising my children before I decided to start dating again. I am now dating a man for almost 1.5 years... Praying GOD will give me that companionship because I've never truly known what that should be like. Never had a good marriage. I agree, it is really hard to rebuild or start over...

It is hard to rebuild, but it is possible. Have you thought about counseling?

I saw a hypnotherapist last week and have been going to DivorceCare weekly. I plan to see the therapist again.
