Divorce today

Today's the day. I feel a little nervous, a little sad, and a little sick to my stomach. Can't believe it's almost over--all the good along with all the bad...and I'm hours away from officially starting a new chapter of my life. Don't know what else to write...I'll be going by myself, with no local support (other than my attorney) and feel kinda alone....prayers appreciated....thanks.

Yes, threewishes, you are not alone today - you have your HP and all of us in spirit. Stay strong. I'm sorry for your losses. I feel them too and it just sucks.

New chapter is good - guess that's what many of us are trying to begin here, as well. I am going to use those words from now on...they sound so positive!

Divorce is hard no matter what the cause. The best advice I got when I went through my divorce three years ago was to take life day by day. I swear sometimes I ended up taking it hour by hour, but eventually I got through the pain.

Well, it's done. Took all of 15 minutes and I am a single woman now. I'm not sure how I feel....a bit sad, relieved, resigned, angry, scared, with little flashes of excitement here and there...all rolled into one big ball of confusion. I know the hurt will subside with time, and the peace and calm will come. One step at a time. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers

Oh! This was funny - after I programmed the address for the courthouse into my garmin and hit "go" - the first thing it said to me was "proceed to Freedom Drive". If that's not a sign, I don't know what is .

Love it!!

I predict you are gonna be just FINE. Don't be shocked if a wave of sadness still hits you once in awhile--those will come further apart and won't last as long.

Hugs, glad you have that behind you.

That's AWESOME about the "freedom drive" direction...Direct line to HP if you ask me.

Congratulations on this important step in your journey.

I think we have to use the 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' theory here.
Its always gonna be tough no matter what the circumstances are (im dreading mine - ugh!) but you have been brave and courageous in taking hold of your life and taking it back!! And that is something to be celebrated!!!
((((hugs))))
