Divorce Recovery and Feeling Like You Are Crazy
Key Points
  • You are not crazy. Read that again. No, you are not crazy. Divorce recovery is a process and as stressful as it comes. The emotional turmoil you will endure going through a divorce feels like you are losing your mind; but you are not.
  • Think about a funny way to tell your divorce story. Write it down. Try to find the humor in brushing your teeth with hemorrhoid cream rather than grabbing your toothpaste.


This section contains frequent splashes of humor. We know humor can feel foreign and even awkward in these turbulent times, but it’s a great healing agent, and we encourage you to join in the healthy act of laughing as often and heartily as possible. It will help you keep your perspective through the chaos.

We hope that you, the visitor, will benefit from those who have traveled this path before you. One of the most beneficial exercises you can do while enduring an emotional trauma is to journal your thoughts and feelings. Therefore, we have left space on each page of this section for you to type or write entries. It’s our belief that you can never express yourself too much.

Words to Heal By ... an interactive divorce recovery experience!

Word to Heal By ... Crazy

One, two, three, Buckle my shoe ~~ Robert Benchley

Other people don’t warn you about how crazy-making extreme stress can be. Be forewarned! The emotional heave of divorce will leave you feeling brain dead more often than not, and that can be scary. It helps to remember that what you’re experience-ing is a "normal" part of the process, and you aren’t losing your mind - at least not permanently.

If I were swapping "losing my mind" stories with other divorced people, which stories would I include?
