This is a continuation of my "totally heartbroken" thread.


I'm really having to read over your wonderful posts in that thread to try and make it through.


The thing is, is he is online like all the time.

My personal advice from experience? Block or remove him from your list, not just so that he can't see you, but so that you don't see him. Also delete his email from your address book, block his phone number, etc. The more temptation there is around you to miss him and wallow in misery, the harder this will be.

I agree with Erin. I have been in your shoes before and like you, I blocked him but I could still see that he was online... It KILLED me!!! I finally got to the point where I just couldn't take it anymore. If the temptation is there it just makes it that much harder. Delete him from your contact list, from your phone (block if you can), I would delete him from you myspace and facebook (if your on there)... It will be hard to do, but

ditto Erin (a second time). Been there and it's torture. Another thing I did (after deleting him from every place I could possibly contact him quickly/easily was every time I had the urge to contact him (whether it be to YELL at him and fuss him out or if it was just an urge to tell him something that had just happened) was I would send an email... to myself. I'd put my email address in the "to" line before I did anything else and then I would type everything I wanted to say and then I would send it. He never got any of it but it got it off my chest and eventually I felt better. Hang in there and do what you have to do to take care of you. I know it's hard but you'll feel better quicker the more rid of him you are and before you know it those crazy, torturing thoughts won't be there anymore.
