Surviving a divorce can require fortitude, resilience, and substantial energy. But what happens if you’re struggling with a serious illness during the process? What if your medical condition limits your ability to think, hampers your concentration, hinders your earning power, or prevents you from forging and managing relationships to handle the diverse problems in your life?
Here’s a small exercise to help you see the scope of what you need to handle.
If you’re feeling well enough, get out a notepad or a whiteboard, and begin to list all the problems on your mind that pertain to the divorce and your medical condition. Include issues that are only distantly related, such as your personal finances and your long-term goals. Once you’ve listed out all these issues, and you can’t think of anymore, you should feel some relief, because you will finally be able to see a complete catalogue of your commitments.
Then next part of the exercise involves organizing and processing that list, so that you can take action on it, delegate projects, and review the list as needed to retain your sense of control.
