Don, I feel so much relief knowing  that you took our suggestions to heart and are seeking counseling and meeting with a grief counselor.  It will be such help for you and hopefully lift your spirits and that cloud overhead.  Be kind to yourself and am sending hugs and blessings your way.

Don..I am so glad you have found the support you need.....and we could all be here to help you find a direction that would help you...I hope the grief group is good for you...I don't know how I would have survived without it...I was maybe 3-4 years alone when I found this my grief group was it for the first year...Good luck..may God bring you peace...

Don, I'm so sorry your going trough this loss, it's brutal.  Everyone here understands your pain, I just want you to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  Keep going forward with counseling and finding people who will listen to you talk about your loss.  The good memories will someday give you comfort.

Thanks Don for the update. I’ve been thinking about you and wondering how you are - as I’m sure the community has.  One day at a time is the only way to move forward but it is not easy traveling this rocky road none of us ever wanted to be on.  

Baby steps.  Be good to yourself - eat good food, sleep as well as possible, go for a walk each day - fresh air is really important even if only for half an hour or so.  Please trust you will feel different/better after getting outside. I don’t know the medical reason but there is one. It changes your mental outlook for the better. It works.  

Please keep in touch when you can.  We care.

Tess...I so agree about a pet being helpful. My little dog gave me such comfort when I was all alone...everyone had gone home. they can be quite a comfort and she is still helping 5 years later.

Don...I know that helpless feeling all too well. 4 months after my husband of 43 years died, my second oldest son was in a horrific motorcycle crash that led to the amputation of a leg and a broken back. Many months in the hospital and I was left to deal with it all alone.there were days when I felt like giving up and joining my husband, but my faith, and love of my family and not wishing to leave them with THAT legacy..kept me going. The sun will shine again...though never as bright as it used to. Best wishes.
