Wrong way around for depression in our house, oddly. She drinks, I destroy ice cream by the container.

A friend told me that in order to get over someone, you need to get under someone else.

No clue if it works. Worth an experiment.

How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

This reminds me of the joke about the secret to a long marriage. The husband responds with the usual blather about honesty and friendship while the wife simultaneously answers "Bathroom fans."
 
2018-02-05 10:35:48 PM  
Time, sure.  I also put a lot more focus on myself and the things I knew that made me happy, but then, I was leaving a marriage to a depressive who was not very good for me.  I was isolated from friends, devoid of hobbies and free time.

By the time a little more than a year had passed, I had reconnected with people, made a new friend or two, lost some weight, and was ready to truly move on with someone else.

Anything before that would've been purely sexual.

/not that there's anything wrong with that.  Its fun.  But it doesn't help.
 
2018-02-05 10:37:58 PM  
It's natural to feel devastated but even through the hurt, you have to try to live for yourself and do things.  Throw yourself into a hobby, read, walk around town, just force yourself to DO STUFF and grow.   Distract yourself here and there and each time you come back to it, you might find it hurts a bit less. Grieve for however long is necessary but it's important to get your ass back out there!

Some kind of peace of mind

Do people really want to eat ice cream when they're sad or is that just a mythical cure created by Ben & Jerry's to sell more pints?

See, mine took some Daycron, a mechanical heart valve, and a whole lot of sutures and blood products poured in while the fixed it.

I got rooked, I think, if booze would have done the trick...

Prison and drug addiction -- and HE left YOU? Why didn't you get the fact that he was a loser and leave him?  I'd rather be without a man in my life than ever be with such a loser.

Oddly enough if someone is still broken hearted after ten years, I need more information. If the loved-one has passed away, I feel that is sad but at the same time somehow appropriate and romantic. If the heartbreak was the result of a break-up, and the loved-one is now happily living with someone else, I can't help but feel that it's well past the time to move on. I'm not entirely sure if that is a fair reaction, but it's the reaction I have.

The phrase that gets used around here when some dude who looks like he has nothing going for him at all,  yet still manages to get some woman's attention, is: "he must be one charming motherf***er".

Five years ago tomorrow for me. And I never expect to recover losing my soulmate in such a terrible way. At least I have the third anniversary this Friday of losing my dad to help me forget.

Ever think maybe there are reasons a person can't just "move on"?  When you have committed to a course of things like careers, mortgages, and children, and someone you were counting on bails on that course, you can't just "move on".  The bills still need to be paid, but now there are more of them, possibly for decades.  The kids continue to grow, and every moment, every milestone in their life is now tainted by the knowledge of what could have been.  How do you let go of that?
 
2018-02-06 02:03:07 PM  
I don't have anything particularly constructive to add here. Ive my own demons to fight (mostly losing, but hey, for whatever reason, still gotta fight).  The hard part is when you turn to the things you once enjoyed and loved, but they too only bring despair...

Live the life of a clown with a painted on smile.

Its difficult, to say the least. Best of luck to all who go through it and hope to see ya on the other side!
