I just wanted to send a hug and some support.  One day at at time.  You just have to get through today. And you're doing it. Do you have good friends/family nearby?
Hugs.

I just wanted to send you a hug-- this is so hard.  My ex was living with his gf (now wife) for months before he told me.  My son was an infant so I never had to talk to him about it and by the time...

Agreed on the Hylands and yes, I think they are at Walmart. And the nice thing is, you can try them or try tylenol and if one doesn't work, it is safe to give the other. There is no danger in...
