Welcome in, I’m so glad you found us.
When my mother passed, one of my friends was going through a divorce, and quite frankly, the grief was the same, the loss was almost identical. In some ways, their loss was worse because their ex still existed and was around still. It’s a hard position to be in, and my heart aches for you in this time.
Grief is a sneaky bastard. I’d say this is one of those times when you have to reach out to your support system and let them know how you’re truly feeling, and how your struggling. Get professional help too to help you go through this grief and loss. You aren’t being dramatic at all, this is very much a painful time for you.

This is indeed the kind of thing that can break someone, I’m so glad you recognize this too. If you need the extra support, please do reach out. Don’t isolate yourself, don’t try to go through this alone! We’re here for you. Please take care of yourself, friend. Looking forward to hearing from you soon, let us know how things are progressing.
