I know exactly what you're going through. Which makes no difference whatsoever really.

I'm thinking I may never touch my computer again...because that means I'll have to change the wallpaper, and delete the conversations I saved and the 140 or so pictures that I took while on vacation.
I don't think anyone deserves to keep you from your computer. Computers are among the most sacred of objects. Coupled with them are puppies, penguins, and 10 hours of sleep.

I'll have to tell my mom. And most likely my brother. And my grandma. The first two have seen me walking back and forth between two rooms in various stages of tears...bawling so that I can hardly breathe, and being ridiculously calm with just tears rolling down.
Telling your family is the worst. *hugs*

We were also forced to eat Alea's minstrals. That was cause for more rejoicing.

Alea,

I usually try to stay far removed from e-drama, but because it's you, I wanted to say that I really hope you won't leave Pweb or stop chatting. Be strong.

Oh, Alea, I'm so sorry. That is a really, really awful thing to have to go through.

Feel much, much better. *hugs*

Keep posting and talking to people, because sometimes dealing with it on your own, in your own head just makes it worse. You have people here for you.

Kelly edited her posts in the last thread. :(

I was going to use her words -she's always better than I am- but I suppose mine will have to do.

I don't want to quit talking to people or posting here because then I'll have to start dealing with this on my own, in my head and I don't want to. Not that I don't want to feel better, I just want to skip right to that. I want to avoid all the pain that I know must come first.

So, sorry for constantly posting and editing.

you should use your own words, anyway. they are yours, they belong to you. they have power. trust that.

*hug*
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

Let it out, Alea. It's a lot better than keeping it in.

(I hope Kelly ends up feeling comfortable enough to post in this thread, too.)

I found a website today about a woman who made a list of 100 things she wanted/needed to do before she was ready to fall in love again. It made me smile, and it sort of represented what I feel like the truly redeeming aspect of a breakup is. Just thought someone else might enjoy it as much as I did.

Alanis saved me. I literally SCREAMED the lyrics. I'd drive for hours just singing as loud as I could. And I HATE driving.

Simple Together was the song I played OVER and OVER.

And You Oughta Know when he told me he was cheating on me (turned out to be a lie), when he fooled around with some random girl, and when he told me about the new girlfriend..

I think I played You Oughta Know at least a hundred times (ENDLESS REPEAT) when I found out that my ex had cheated on me.

Bastard.

Alanis is terrific. My best friend and I spent awhile singing songs from Jagged Little Pill by flashlight during the blackout a few years ago...

Edit: I think "Mary Jane" is probably my favorite of anything of hers, though. With "Perfect" a close second.

I don't have a lot to add to this thread except silent support, but I did want to empathize with you, Alea.
I hate people seeing me weak, sad, afraid, needy. It's so freakin' hard. Even the people closest to me who see it all the time. I want to hide. But that makes it worse, yaknow? I'm having to learn that I have to be who I am and in a lot of ways, that means being weak.

I got some rather angry, hurtful messages today.
I'm trying so hard to take it in stride. I keep telling him he doesn't mean it. I wish I believed he truly didn't..
They stung, but I won't ever let on that they did. I want my fake smiles to become real ones. I want to have a conversation that doesn't lead to my ex. I want to just be normal, be happy.

This song Simple Together by Alanis is the most fitting I've ever heard.

You’ve been my golden best friend
Now with post-demise at hand
Can’t go to you for consolation
Cause we’re off limits during this transition

This grief overwhelms me
It burns in my stomach
And I can’t stop bumping into things

I thought we’d be simple together
I thought we’d be happy together
Thought we’d be limitless together
I thought we’d be precious together
But I was sadly mistaken

You’ve been my soulmate and mentor
I remembered you the moment I met you
With you I knew god’s face was handsome
With you I suffered an expansion

This loss is numbing me
It pierces my chest
And I can’t stop dropping everything

I thought we’d be sexy together
Thought we’d be evolving together
I thought we’d have children together
I thought we’d be family together
But I was sadly mistaken

If I had a bill for all the philosophies I shared
If I had a penny for all the possibilities I presented
If I had a dime for every hand thrown up in the air
My wealth would render this no less severe

I thought we’d be genius together
I thought we’d be healing together
I thought we’d be growing together
Thought we’d be adventurous together
But I was sadly mistaken

Thought we’d be exploring together
Thought we’d be inspired together
I thought we’d be flying together
Thought we’d be on fire together
But I was sadly mistaken

Roadtrips are brilliant. I went on one this weekend. I love getting lost in music, just driving. The open road and myself. Tears and screaming lyrics and just driving.
It was the longest drive I've ever accomplished.
Easily the most therapeutic, as well.
