Ok so the past few weeks for me have been the worst of my whole life, my partner of 5 years has split up from me and I didn't know how to coup with it all.
I've lost alot of weight the past couple of weeks and I haven't cried so much in years!!!
He was my first in so many ways first boyfriend,first love and this has hit my so hard.
I won't go in to detail but if at all possible you have to end it in a good way, make sure you speak and talk to each other, that was the hardest bit for me as he just shut down and was just acting as if nothing had happen.
We have had a good talk and cry last night, I might be losing him in a way but I will not lose my best friend!
We should have a PS.com breakup support group.
I know what you mean about the whole acting as if it's not happened bit. It's really hard to see someone going from being affectionate and loving to putting up walls of defence and almost being cold.
When my GF left me, it was such a shock. I mean literally a shock, I went into all the classic symptoms and then she left. It was literally and hour between finding out and being in an empty house. I think I find the lack of intimacy difficult as well. After living with someone for years, not being able to hug them when you want to, or being able to curl up next to them when you go to bed. It's simple things like this that make life really hard.
It's funny how in times of emotional turmoil, some people comfort eat and some people stop eating all together. I'm like you and stop eating. I've lost 10lbs since this happened a few weeks ago, but have finally started eating almost normally again.
If you fancy talking to someone who's in the same boat, feel free to PM me
