Dead on! That is exactly how I feel.

I have been seeing a therapist since the divorce and now with all this drama as well. She recommended a few books. They have shed light on my fears/anxieties from an intellectual point of view, but have failed to address the spiritual/emotional part. I will give it a try and hope it works for me. Thanks!
