Exclamation I need help? - July 2nd 2010, 09:17 PM

Hey everyone
My name's Shelly and I'm brand new to these forums!
I mainly joined to vent about my 'problems' and ask you guys for your opinion on whether I should seek professional help or not
I'll start from the beginning:

My ex-boyfriend and I were together for quite a long time, we were best friends before becoming an official couple and were extremely happy together. Or so I thought. One night, right before I was getting into bed, he texted me and told me that we needed to talk..five minutes later, he sent a text that said "I think we're better off as friends." I was devastated and depressed, and still possibly could be. My grandmother, who I was very close with, passed away a week later. He knew about her death and didn't say anything to me. Nothing at all. This was all the way back in December and I am honestly still broken from this. Recently, he's tried to apologize to me for everything that he had did and he gets so upset that I can't forgive him right off the bat. He doesn't understand that I need time.

His reasoning for breaking up with me? His ex girlfriend had texted him, the same day he broke up with me, telling him that she was still 'in love' with him. I just recently found this out. He believed her over me. And it hurts so bad to know that everything he ever said to me was a lie. Needless to say, I was in love with him, he was my first love, my everything. And now I have no idea what to do. This was almost 7 months ago and I still have no idea what to do with myself. Do you think I need help? Clearly, something is wrong with me, I just don't know what. I just want to be happy again.

You don't have to have a mental illness to benefit from seeing a therapist.. therapists can help you work through a specific issue like the one you're experiencing. Since the break-up seems to be really affecting your life (for a pretty significant amount of time) I think you'd benefit from talking to someone about it.

Also, I'm really sorry this happened to you. I know breakups are hard.. they really suck when you're the one being broken up with. I know this probably doesn't sound helpful but time will help to heal and it will get better. Good luck:]
