I GOT A NEW JOB!!!! So happy as I really hated my old one and needed a change haha
I’m so sorry to hear this. If it’s not too personal to ask: did your partner leave or pass away?
Have you had any counselling at all? Both heartbreak and grief from death can sometimes seem impossible to get through alone.
When I lost a friend of mine who passed away suddenly I didn’t get help at the time and it definitely took me longer to heal. I wish I could go back and get help.

Deffo worth switching off your phone or putting it on airplane mode for an hour or so a day.
I do that and watch a programme I really want to watch without being disturbed!
I don’t specifically have PTSD but I do suffer from severe anxiety attacks.
What helps me is some grounding techniques –
Look: what different things can you see all around you?
Smell: what can you smell?
Hear: What sounds can you hear around you?
Touch: what would you be able to touch, different textures.
Maybe this could help when you’re having a flashback maybe?
Omg, same thing happened to me with my current boyfriend – I think my mates were just being protective after my ex but it really hurt my feelings.
Have you tried talking to them about it but keep it casual? Maybe ask them why they don’t like him? Or most importantly why they’re lying to you about him and then saying this behind the scenes?
I’d rather someone told me they were a virgin than say they’d slept with a million people!!
I guess it depends on the girl and how well conversation flows – if you find yourself having big convos early on then maybe you could bring it up then. But it wouldn’t put me off personally so I wouldn’t make it a huge deal.
This is such a cute idea!
I bought myself a new coat today for the new season – I’ve been looking at it for ages and I LOVE it! ☺️
Have you got any friends or family you could talk to instead of a counsellor maybe?
For me what helped was just talking over and over and over about it until I couldn’t talk anymore. Friends will listen to the same thing a million times and not mind.
The firsts are always hard too – first Christmas, first birthday etc.
You are strong enough to get through though.

What an awful story – I’m so sorry you had to go through that 🙁
It’s horrible isn’t it.
Have you read the article on here on how to get through the two weeks of heartbreak as it’s pretty new for you – it might help. I thought it was a really practical article.
I didn’t shower for three days when I found out!!!

Hey Amelia. I followed your story and your blog posts helped me so much.
I’ve told him a little about my ex but not the full extent of it. I’m worried if I do then he might think I’m broken or a freak.

Thanks Elsey. You’re right I know he wasn’t the one for me and he obviously has his own issues it’s just so hard sometimes remebering that all men aren’t the same – especially when you hear so many horror stories!!!!!
