I've noticed that life does become easier when NC becomes easier with situations like power outages, summer vacations when you know that the other person is away...so I need to capitalize on these feelings and know that NC is doable, right?

How long has NC been going on??? I went away this weekend and had NC , it was nice not to cry for 3 days. But of course when I got back all the pain returned.Do you think the answer is to Keep busy?? But I am alone alot and it can be very hard. How are you doing it??

Keeping busy IS a major factor in getting over it. Try getting involved with some volunteer organization. Start exercising or walking the dog. Don't have a dog? Walk the neighbor's!! Find a p/t job. Pick up a hobby. Read more. Do crosswords or try crosstitch. Find something to keep your mind busy if not your body. Concentrate on other aspects of your life.

Yes, keeping busy, especially the mind...works for me...then there is no time to dwell on this crap...if you need to vent, vent here, with people who relate...I think it helps....NC for me is just starting again....
