A blog reader referred me to the mail below on Linda Ikeji's blog with a simple question ; how do you recover from a broken heart? She said she is in similar shoes, that is exactly how she feels and she has started taking heavy doses of sleeping medicine and/codeine to dull the pain;
Thelma this mail is as if am the one that wrote it. It has gotten to the point where am wishing I will just die in my sleep. Please will I ever be ok again? How does someone survive after heart break?
After 3 and a half years with my boyfriend, he broke things off on September 30th. He said he was no longer happy and wanted to be single again. I've been begging him for the past two months for another chance but he's adamant. Now, I've been having these suicidal thoughts. Sometimes when I'm sleeping, my heart just stops and I literally can't breath for close to 5 seconds. I don't function normally anymore. My friends keep telling me I will heal with time but the way I'm feeling, I feel like I will one day just drop dead. I have headache 24/7 just from thinking about him. I've tried, I've even gone to church, I can't stop hurting or stop thinking about him. Just this weekend I thought dying would be the best way out but I don't want to die but how do I stop my heart from hurting so much. The headaches has turned my eyes to bloodshot red. I can't live. Help me!
Coping techniques anyone?
