Oh how so sad, and yes it is new and raw, and you are probably still in shock, especially with a new baby.
If you read in the different Groups and Blogs postings, you will read see that each of us are in different parts
of the journey, and everyone here will "get it". If you go to the "introduce yourself please" you can read many stories..
go to the last page which is the most recent. There are usually people in the chat room in the evenings if you want to go there. Please know this is a place where people will truly understand what you are going through, and you will know that all of your feelings are OK. Hugs to you

I cry in my vehicle and after I put the kids to bed. The lonely seems debilitating.
It has been sometime since I last posted on this board. I lost my wife in December of 2005, and I still miss her to this day.
However, I just lost my brother that I loved dearly. We were very close, and I feel sad that we cannot converse or visit ever again.
Of course you are overwhelmed by sadness. I am so very sorry for the loss of your partner. How to cope with the feelings? Feel them. But if you are not functioning at a basic level (REALLY basic at this point, as in getting out of bed, feeding yourself, feeding the baby), are panicking, or are reliving upsetting scenarios over and over again, get a therapist. How exhausting it is to care for a little one with an intact family! Do you have help for baby care and around the house?
