I'm in my mid-forties and divorced with no children. I adored my husband, trusted him completely, thought he was my best friend. But he was hiding a terrible secret, which when revealed destroyed my life and everything for which I had worked so hard. The event, although not my fault, affected me deeply. I was embarrassed and withdrew from life, lost my career, my friends and am now isolated and insecure. I don't know if I will ever be able to find the hope and confidence to re-enter and trust the world again. They say the pain of a loss it gets easier with time, but at my age, time is only making me feel worse and more hopeless with each passing day.
