I can totally relate to wha tyou're going through EG. I'm so sorry you feel so bad. I know how it feels. I wish there were some way for us all to be there more than just words on a computer screen, but until something more real comes along, close your eyes, hear our voices, and imagine all of us with our arms around you...

((((((((EG)))))))) :angel:

It's been said since time eternal, and I guess it still holds true, men are just better at separating sex and love than women are. Friends with benefits is a situation that almost always finds the woman at the short end of the stick. But PLEASE don't beat yourself up over going back to him and getting burned. It's hard. I've been thinking seriously about calling my FWB and seeing what might happen. My heart is so sore and I'm so frustrated I can't even sit still. It's not so easy to just be cut off from love and sex and comfort and companionship. Please don't beat yourself up for being human and for needing and wanting that. It's only natural. Perhaps you just need to concentrate on baby steps. You've got all this stuff hitting you in the face, being suddenly single, changing jobs, moving, hiring movers, renting a truck, packing up all your stuff, sending out resumes, going on interviews...that's a lot to deal with. maybe if you break it up in your mind, break it down day by day, instead of looking at it all in one big chunk. Today, you're going to send 5 resumes out, pack up books, just books, then call a friend and treat yourself to a movie or some other type of pampering tonight. Then tomorrow will be another day to tackle another little piece of the big chunk. Then perhaps it won't seem so daunting.

In the meantime, I think it's ok to miss your ex. It's ok to be hurt by what your FWB told you. You're human. Give yourself permission to be stung a little. Feel it, embrace the fact that it's normal, then set to the task of tackling today's little chunk.

I hope you'll be feeling better soon. Vent again if you need to.
