There are so many educated, compassionate and kind people on this forum. I am very thankful. Do not let divorce be an excuse to allow your health to fall apart.
I've come to believe that the grief/sorrow, remorse and guilt that come along with divorce are REAL physical ailments. I've felt very guilty about how my marriage turned out. We did not have infidelity/abuse, just the following: my ADHD symptoms STBXH couldn't accept, parent-child dynamic, and anger-defense dynamic. Did I willingly hurt him? NO, never would. SO, why do I feel so guilty, like I did something wrong? B/c it is the guilt and pain of losing a spouse.
This is not an excuse to let myself fall apart. Here is my divorce Rx, please add to the list, I'll try anything to feel better(except anything illegal), and I want all of you too feel better too!!
What tips/foods help you feel better? My list is below:
-Exercise: 1 Hour a day at minimum (very key...usually go to gym at nite, then come home and read divorce recovery book)
-Super Foods (blueberries, spinach, tofu, yogurt)
-Lots of water
-Melatonin to sleep (natural and non-addictive)
-Pedicure/Facial (massage has been shown to lower stress)
- Dye hair with henna (minimum chemical exposure) to cover up grey roots popping in from stress
...please add to the list!
sad but healthy,
