Two sides of the same coin

Thank you, Kristin. I went through this about 6 months ago when my marriage ended. Sleep was elusive, my thoughts were running 24/7, heavy heart, heightened anxiety at 3 p.m. everyday (not sure why). I took flight at every opportunity, anything to escape my reality. I also started listening to music to help me sleep — I still do today. It’s not as bad anymore. I’m feeling better and have come to terms with the break-up. I miss the idea of being with someone, and knowing that there is someone, but now realize that I was truly sad and lonely when we were together. By no means were we living in wedded bliss. It’s tough but we are tougher. It does and did get better.
