Although I was the instigator of the breakup - I fell out of love and I had an affair which was discovered - I have still been shocked by how difficult divorce is. I scored 520. The effects have been constant anxiety, not understanding all the financial aspects of splitting assets and changing houses, hair loss and skin changes. In addition to divorce and moving house this past 18 months has included huge issues with my teenage sons ( they are very judgemental), supporting my 2 young sons and their confusion about why mummy and daddy don't like each other anymore, menopause,caring fro my 95 year old mother, working full time and finishing my Masters degree!! You feel dislocated from life and desperately want someone to come and rescue you and make everything better. Anyway, somehow I am getting through this and I move to my new house tomorrow, and my new life begins.
