Princess, The only way to get rid of the pain is to go through it - feel it, process it, and let it go. If you stuff it, it'll stay in your body and eat you up.
You don't have much of a choice with this pain - it's been dumped on you. You can stuff it or you can let it go.
Stop avoiding your pain. Face it. Accept it. Embrace it. Really. You can do it. Its the best and fastest way by far to get rid of it.
What you're doing now is, in fact, setting yourself up to crash and burn. If you feel your pain, you'll feel energized as you let it go.
You might find IC is a big help in processing the pain.
