You are a good person and a good son. Enjoy your Mom, stay calm and take a deep breath. We all know that each day is a gift....enjoy those gifts, enjoy the differences of Chris and Mike. You will never ever forget the love of your life. I too wish someone would tell me to sit down and relax a bit and let that someone do for me. Not sure that is ever going to happen. I have a lot of support but honestly after 5 yrs, I'm almost embarrassed to say that I still need a little pat on the back or a big hug. Things have changed, I do not like it at all but there is no turning back to the way it was. I am hopeful that maybe some day (maybe even into my 80's) things will be good for me. See, I'm still hoping and wishing for all those fun things to happen again...love and companionship.
Juls, it will be 6 years for me on 4/30. I have been on antidepressents since before Mike died, and afterwards, they changed them to other ones over and over again. This resulted in huge weight gain for me, altho inactivity has contributed to that also. I am still on them, probably always will be. It is still hard for me in many ways since Mike died. It has been very hard for me.
Hi Everyone.. I was anitdepressents since 2009 and got off of them in August of 2014. I have felt they were not helping. I was still having flash backs of him that night when he passed. He did pass suddenly in front of me. I would hear songs and think back to all the memories we shared. Doctor wanted to up my pills but I thought I have to get off of these someday. I think back to my Mon who also lost her husband at 54 and she didn't go on any thing and she survived. Although I really don't know what she was feeling back then. Well, my son just moved out and all of that is still coming through my mind. He is also getting married in July of this year. I am still having a very hard time and I don't understand because it will be 6 years this May. When I think back of those 6 years I don't know where that time went or how I survived them. It dosent feel like 6 six years at all. Anyway, just wondering if anybody else is still feeling the hurt or is it because I went off the anitdepressents? Thanks everyone. Julie
