The waiting and fear of the unknown has been so hard. I feel like a prisoner marking the days off each night before I go to sleep. I am not sure how much longer I can keep sane during this process of navigating divorce. I feel like a shadow floating through life right now. I get up, go to work, go home, make dinner, take care of my kids and go to bed. It’s sad and lonely. I just filed and am waiting for the process to fully get under way, and it just seems that life is moving in slow motion. Life is like a dream right now.

I know everyone says that you have to take care of yourself during this process. But I am struggling with it all. I know I am doing the right thing, I just wish it could move faster.  Also, I am still living with my husband. And just the sight of him makes me ill - his fake concern for my wellbeing.If he was that concerned, why is he willing to put us through a custody battle? Feels like I’m fading away some days. How do you all cope?
