Many things happen in the wake of a divorce.  Most of us are still suffering the heartbreak, frustration and anger associated with a break-up while we deal with the legal aspects that leave us with half or less of everything (including time with our kids).  We no sooner get through one situation and another challenging one occurs. 

There are many ways my family and I offset the frequency of these situations and their duration.  I put together a list of common problems and solutions that may also help you.

I was in my early 40's when I divorced.  I had 3 children, ages 12, 14 and 16 along with a home mortgaged 90% of it's value.  I worked the entire time I was married except for 6 weeks maternity leave for each child. 

A mental breakdown is an immediate health crisis that starts with a sudden onset of severe depression and anxiety.  It is characterized by symptoms of a limited psychiatric disorder that occurs in a formerly functional individual. 

Is your life a hot mess?  Life challenges come in all different shapes and sizes.  What can literally break you one day, may barely affect your life the next.  Much has to do with the amount of anxiety, stress and additional problems you currently face.
