    You’re so right. When the absolute unimaginable happens, and it’s in what we thought to be “our world” that we knew, for however many years, it knocks us off the globes axis is how I felt.
    When your own family and friends can’t relate at all, and you’re feeling the overwhelming emotions all at once and everything is spinning farther out of control, the ONE thing that so many of us share is the “Me Too”, that saves us some of the thoughts of “why me”, or why is it “just me”. It’s not. We know that. With each utterly horrifying story of another’s pain and anguish we do find that it’s not only us, as mortifying as its been for so many of us, I’m grateful for these brave men and women for sharing their stories. If not for them, it would be much harder to tell my own, and I’m ever so grateful for learning the truths behind my own story and can empathize with each and every person and story I read. We all can help if by just saying, “Me Too”. I know reading those two tiny words together have helped me be stronger for myself and others.
    Thank you, Lisa, for always being here.

    My dry cleaner recognized by the look on my face that my life had just fallen apart. He said: “My wife left a note on the kitchen table saying she was done after twenty-five years.” It was so amazing to have someone recognize and understand the pain I was going through. I called him my Dry Cleaning Therapist.

    It is only through talking that we come to find out we are not alone. I think the internet has helped that alot. I know for me, reading other blogs is what started me feeling like I wasn’t so alone…but for a long time I wasn’t really talking about my feelings. When I did…there were connections I was able to make that I never would have otherwise.
    We are not alone.
    Not in our pain.
    Not in our heartbreak.
    Not in our joy.
    All we have to do is have a little courage to open up.

    I never expected to be in the me too club of family law. How trust given to a spouse can be broken in a vindictive way is still difficult to comprehend. Will I ever be able to trust again is the unanswered question. Unfortunately the pain from the Court of Family Law runs deep with a strong desire to avoid at all costs.
