    I am not technically but last summer after celebrating 10 years together, my boyfriend ended the relationship. We’ve been best friends for literally half of lives and he was my first love. We’ve been through a lot together. Things have been ‘complicated’ to say the least over the last several months but after feeling like I was doing good for a while, recently finding out he was ‘dating’ a coworker he’s had for years has really hurt me and sent me over the edge (especially how we were still hooking up just a few weeks ago). Anyway. It’s been hard. Laura, I’m so grateful to have found your writing because it really has helped me find my strength and keep going. A relationship of 10 years is extremely hard to let go of, but you’ve said some really powerful things that are helping. Thank you for sharing. ❤️

      Emily, I am so very sorry for all you are going through but glad I can be of some help. Please don’t hook up or go back to him. He sounds like a jerk– that’s not cool at all. HUGS

        Thank you ❤️❤️ It’s really hard to ‘let him go’ right now but I know it’s what I have to do. I’m trying to be strong and honestly using some of your writing and other inspirational writing/pieces are helping me. Thank you again.

        ps – in my original post i meant to say I’m not technically ‘divorced’ but because it’s been so long in many ways it felt like a ‘marriage’ and it’s been hard to find myself again without being constantly reminded of my ex, so much of me feels like part of him after all these years.

    Thank you for writing this. I am suffering terribly with hyperemesis and thinking we may well only have one child. Reading this scares me less as to what our future may look like. Thank you.

      I am sorry to hear you are going through this. I did have HG again and it did not work out for me. HG tends to repeat– I am sorry to share that…but if you get help ahead of time, perhaps you can make it easier the 2nd time around. Helpher.org is a great place to get info
