Informative piece, Bonnie. Especially where I am today. I’ve never heard it called looping but I’m well acquainted with the emotions. They chase me down all fall and eventually catch up the week of Thanksgiving. The destruction they leave in their wake is something I have yet to get a handle on.

I’ve never been divorced but I’ve heard people compare it to death. I suspect a lot of the emotions are the same they just manifest differently because the one you loved is still alive. When I turn that over in my mind I can’t help but think it’s got to be every bit as difficult to handle.

Treat yourself gently. I’m trying to do the same.
