The Blasphemy BoxThe Blasphemy Box

“You know that nightmare you’ve always had? The one where you wake up one day to find yourself fat, frumpy, fifty and alone? I’m living it.” Maddy Nelson has an idyllic existence: a handsome husband, great kids, a comfortable, affluent lifestyle.

One morning soon after she turns fifty, however, she wakes up in her San Francisco home to find her husband Steven announcing that he’s leaving her for a woman half her age. And a third of her size. Ouch! Feeling totally unmoored and grieving for her married life and husband, Maddy finds herself thrust into an unfamiliar and uncomfortable world of middle-aged singledom.

There, she must come to terms with her situation and embark on her new life: divorce proceedings, single parenting, internet dating, and trying to earn a living. It’s enough to drive her over the brink. To help her cope, she shares her struggles in a smart, wry blog named The Blasphemy Box, after her ex-husband’s obnoxious habit of having her drop a quarter into a wooden box every time she said something off color.

Her madcap middle-aged adventures find her devoted readers who identify with her challenges. In time, Maddy recreates herself and finds happiness in the arms of a good man, and a fulfilling new career as a novelist.

  4. I keep busy and ignore them.

  5. I've learned through therapy that some emotions can strike when you least expect them and it's easy to allow yourself to succumb to that emotion, i.e. sadness, anger, resentment, but if you focus on the fact that it's just an emotion that's passing through your mind at that particular time, you can consciously wait it out and soon feel better. Of course this is easier said than done, but it something that I've used to cope and does work to alleviate pain and any other repercussions that might come along with that emotion.
