It's been a while.

It's been a really tough year.
My "best friend" stopped speaking to me in November after I told her about some really personal and heartbreaking experiences I had been through. Some friend.
In January I told my husband I wanted a divorce.
By Mid-March I was in my own place.
By June I had started seeing a man I saw real potential with. We have the same values, similar interests and could talk for hours without getting bored of one another. In July an anonymous person started sending him emails containing vague but scandalous comments about me. We tried to make it work but it broke his trust in me. The emails are still happening even though he broke up with me on Labor Day. It's been an exhausting and emotional summer: I went from being truly happy for the first time in years to sinking back into a mire of depression, but I'm finding that I have the most incredibly supportive friends that have my back.
Through this incredibly stressful period I've still managed to keep off at least 100 lbs. Today I sit at 173.
I'm tired, and my heart hurts. But I've kept healthy.
