  14. Dear Heather,
    I am struggling with getting over my ex at the moment,
    He broke our engagement while I was recovering from Cancer, and a nervous breakdown.

    I’m not sure how I’m going to cope with the first anniversary of our e-party, or the Non-wedding day as you say.

    The pain is terrible and the visions are worse.
    Does this get better?

    Thanks,
    Celina
