    Heart ripped out

    I had been going with my girlfriend for 4 years almost to the day. She came over, like she would normally for a visit. But at the door she was crying her eyes out, embracing me almost as hard as she could. I thought her dad died. She came in sobbing and sat down and said "I don't know how it happened" but I met someone else. She kept saying "it just happened"(right). Well it totally blind sided me, so I started crying. She was only there to tell me this because I had told her if she even thought of going out with another person that she should tell me....well she did. That was about 3 weeks ago. I'm at a stage where I'm consumed by it the breakup. Everything reminds me of what we use to do ( I did get rid of all the things that reminded me of her). But on TV when I saw love making scenes I will automatically think of her being with him....and that I think is the worst part of all this because (sexual) intimacy is the most important thing for me. I'm a retired paper mill worker but I'm also a photographer. So i try to to do positive things but I'm so clinically depressed I can hardly do anything. That's about where I'm at now.

    Thank You
