Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help.
I am so sorry that you were thrown over by this man. You are experiencing grief, as if someone had died. This has been a big loss for you and you have temporarily lost your equilibrium, as anyone else suffering grief.
You now know what type of man he really is. He has no empathy or feeling and used you one last time before dumping you.
If you think about how he really is, you may come to the conclusion that you are fortunate to have learned what he is really like before you got even deeper into this relationship.
Continue talking to your friends, distracting yourself, and doing positive things for yourself. Every day you will feel less and less pain from this loss and soon you will find that he is in the past.
Let me recommend a wonderful book for you that will make this easier to handle:
I know that it seems as if the pain will ever go away, but it will and you will survive and thrive.
Get the book. It will help you a great deal.
I shall keep you in my prayers for healing and comfort.
