MrsHamilton, I hope you had a better day today.
Becca (((((hugs))))) holding you in thoughts and prayers.
Hello everyone I havent been on much, been trying to do this new routine as a single mom. On the 20th I will be coming up on my 4th month. For the first time last night I slept with all the lights off. Since my husband's passing, I havent been able to sleep in total darkness. I have been keeping on the hallway or closet light. It really felt strange but I made it through. Next step, move my son back into his room. Blessings to all! :-)
Hugs back to you, Joyce..I do remember now being a month apart...
Terri: I remembered you also share the 11th as a milestone and that we were a month apart. There were several of us on Sunday trying to comfort each other all on the 11th. Hugs to you.
Heather: I passed the 5 month mark on Sunday, so I know how you feel, the milestone can be devastating. Hugs!
Hi Becca: Hugs to you. I'm glad to hear that you smile more, gives me some hope that maybe this journey will get a little better some day. It was also just my husband and I and I agree the house seems very, very quiet.
Although I am not as far along as you Becca, I am sure I will feel the same way when I reach the one year mark - just not sure what to expect. I am hoping when I reach that point, I will feel more happiness than sadness and when I think of him I will smile instead of crying all the time! Best wishes to you on your journey!
Oh Valerie and Kittymom, my heart goes out to both of you...I just passed the 6th month on Sunday..it was NOT a pretty weekend, but I made it..take it slow, one tiny day at a time...why oh why does those monthly milestones affect us so much??
My heart is with you today Valerie and I hope today is a better day for you! The same thing happened to me last night. I was also doing well the last couple of weeks with staying focused on what I needed to do. However, whenever I sit down long enough, thoughts of his death also come back as if it was yesterday! My 5 months will be on the 20th. We will get through this but I expect many more tears will fall until we have adjusted to our "after (insert name here) died" life.
