      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

I am sorry you are going through this. I would advise you to seek some professional counseling to deal with this or at the very least consider going to self help meetings to deal with your emotional issues or your drinking. AA is a wonderful way to gain support. 

You are not pathetic; you are heartbroken and suffering. Other people have similar experiences and deal with it in the same way. You just have to find a positive way to move forward, and the best way to do that is to seek help. Talk to people. 

We will be here with you.

I can understand what you must be going as my brother too faced a similar problem. He was a habitual drinker and got arrested a couple of times, due to which his wife left him with the kids. He was completely broken and is trying to put his life together once again. I would suggest that you seek some counseling and even though its none of my business to say but I would suggest that unless you have found something to keep you stable, don't let go off the entire savings and house. Try to divide it, so that you will have something to relay upon in future. There various useful resources who will guide you perfectly on how to handle your divorce, so seek their help and suggestions.
