I know that this isn't the primary use of this forum, or even this site for that matter. But I don't really know where to go. If anybody has experienced this, please tell me how you overcame it. If you didn't overcome it, what have you done to cope. I have no idea what to do. I feel like I am drowning, and unless I do something, I am going to lose myself completely. (I know that was weird, sorry, but I figured I should preface this thread with how I feel emotionally) My best friend, of nearly two years, is leaving for a job she got in Texas. And while I am happy that she has a secure future, I am losing someone who has been more than integral to the formation of who I am today. And it is an indescribable improvement. She has been my anchor. And now that she is leaving, I have no one. I have friends to talk to, but none of them can offer me the support, guidance, and love that she could. I know it is hard to decribe feelings at all, let alone in words. But does anybody else feel this? Has anybody lost (not throught death) somone that they loved with every single fiber of their being? Please let me know. I feel very alone, and it would be nice to talk to someone that understands.
