    Grumpy It sounds cliche, but I never thought I'd end up in this sub-forum...

    And yet, here I am.

    I have to preface this with please, please if you have me on FB dont breathe a word of this there. There is one last person, my BFF since middle school, who I'll be telling of all this come next week when I visit CA on my own. Everyone else pretty much knows.

    To simplify it; I'm getting divorced.

    I've been with my still legal husband since 2005, and married since 2008. We have two littles, but they are little enough that I'm relatively confident that they will be more than okay. As much as I firmly believe in marriage being until death, neither of us can fix the damage thats been done. Its as amicable as can be, and we do our best not to fight at all, and if we do, its when the kids are NOT present.

    My mind and body aren't taking it well, though. I have PTSD, and one of my biggest triggers is younger military men who are expressionless or angry. Im still in recovery from my mental break in 2012 when i discovered the names for what I've had my whole life- PTSD and severe anxiety. So on top of divorce being stressful, theres that too. I hate to come back to this site in this manner, but I knew some of yall have been through this. So I came back hoping to be more active in this community, and gain perspective and hopefully friends. Thanks for listening to my ramblings :p

    I am so sorry you're going through this. I recently ended a relationship also. I wasn't married and have no kids so it probably isn't the same thing but if you ever want to vent about life after love I'm more than willing to listen.

    I have PTSD from childhood abuse, major depression and anxiety. It affects me in many ways - some obvious and big, some itty-bitty that I only realize after the fact. I know how difficult it can be.

    Please feel free to PM me if I can help in any way.

    Cliches are often cliches for a reason - nobody goes into a relationship thinking "gee, this will only last a year, and then we'll havve a miserable break up" or whatever. You're not being cliche, it's your life. In any case, I am glad you are doing what is best for you, but I am sorry you are hurting and it sucks right now.
