Are you divorced yet?

YES IT WAS THE ONLY TIME IN MY ENTIRE 30 YEAR RELATIONSHIP THAT I BROKE MY VOWS, WHEN I FILED FOR DIVORCE. IT WAS THE SINGLE MOST PAINFUL DECISION I MADE IN MY ENTIRE ADULT LIFE. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN DIVORCE, AND SUGGEST PEOPLE AVOID IT ALL COSTS, HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOMETIMES MITIGATING CIRCUMSTANCES WHEN IT IS A NECESSARY TO EMANCIPATE ONESELF. I LEARNED ALOT AND I AM HAPPY TO SHARE!

If you are divorced how many years or months since it was final

ON APRIL 23, 2009 ON THE EXACT DATE OUR MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE WAS OFFICIALLY FILED IN 1980 I FINALIZED MY DIVORCE, WHICH I STARTED IN NOVEMBER 2008. QUICK, PAINFUL, OUT OF COURT AND MAY I REPEAT PAINFUL!

If you are not officially divorced what stage are you in the process - A) Separated B) Just Filed C) In the Courts Hands

No answer yet

What are you most looking to get out of the group?

TO START REACH OUT TO ME AND ENSURE I AM PARTICIPATING! LOL.

If you have been divorced for a while are you willing to help out at support meetings and share your story

YES THE IMPETUS BEHIND MY CREATING GARDEN STATE GODDESS WAS TO HELP OTHERS WHO ARE GRIEVING. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ASSIST YOU AND VICE VERSA. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE RESOURCES TO BEGIN A NEW..AND I THOUGHT OF THEM AS I WAS GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS. WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE SOMEONE TO ENSURE THEY FIND AN ATTORNEY, HAVE THEIR PAPERWORK IN ORDER, HAVE SOMEONE TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE BATHED, FED, DRESSED? DON'T HAVE THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO ACCOMPLISH SAME? DIVORCE IS ONE OF THE MOST DEVASTING STRESSORS & THE GRIEF IS WORSE THAN A DEATH. PLAIN AND SIMPLE IT IS HORRIFIC!

Introduction

My alter ego [masked] is a culmination of a life time of experiences that have manifested into the emancipated empowered happy earnest extroverted gleefully flitting & frolicking self-employed gal about town you see today:)
