I am sorry you are going through this, and know how you feel being in the midst of it myself. Lon's advice is an excellent starting point. Also, to avoid getting overwhelmed, think of just putting one foot in front of the other, and doing the next right thing a day at a time. Take it in managebale chunks (i.e. today I will buy storage boxes, today I will go through this or that closet, etc). I love hiking, so it helps me to think of how I reached the top of a mountain that seemed impossible looking at the summit from down below -- one step at a time, taking breaks along the way as needed and feeling fantastic once I reached to top. Above all be very good to yourself and very gentle with yourself, and know that you are not alone!
