“When I seriously decided to separate from Fiona, I had no clue where to start, so I started off by making a list of all the things I was worried about. That turned out to be a bad idea because it was a very long list, and it was all problems and no answers. I decided to speak to a few close friends who had been through it. That turned out to be a bad idea too, because they all told me some of the same things, but a lot different things too.
The picture that comes to mind when I think about that time is me being in a jungle. I was totally confused, and I was in pretty bad shape too; the thing that started to make a difference was when I decided to get professional advice. I guess I had put that off because of cost, but I was scared about what I would be told too. The reality was so much better than what my nightmares had me believing, even though there were very difficult aspects to it all”.
