Sorry you are here. I am about 3 months out so I’ve been on the rollercoaster for a little longer than you. It does get easier as time goes by. I promise.
This is a traumatic experience for you so give yourself permission to feel whatever emotions that come to you. Don’t give them too much weight. Just let them come and go. They will slowly dissipate and settle down. Practice self care. It’s so important. Sleep, eat, drink, meditate, walk, talk to a friend, etc. Again, give yourself permission to do whatever you need to do to survive. It’s ok to not clean the house, do the laundry, etc. It’s ok to order out for every meal, you get my point. Designate one or two trustworthy friends and rely on them heavily. If you come from a place of faith, lean into that too.
As for counseling, the counselor will lead so you don’t have to prepare any questions.
SI is a great place for support and resources. Come back often and rely on the wonderful folk here to help you.
