    You aren't alone, but you could use some support here. I completely agree with you, if you feel that way you can't just 'get over it!' Distractions will help you get through some of the feelings though. Music, a hobby, exercise, things like that. If you found a way to get a good massage that might help you very much.

    Breathe deeply. Where there is breath, there is hope. You are not alone. If you have no one to talk to, try a free crisis line- they are not just for people who are suicidal, sometimes people just call them when they are going through a hard time and need to talk. Also, we are always here.
