wow, i am trying to go back to work today with my 17 year old son but I had a bad moment inside a Dunkin Donuts, i saw a small 2 year old with her grandma. Boy it just hit me when Alex (My 19yr old) died 11-26-11 i will never be able to share in his children, and now only 2-1-12 the loss of my wife of 21 years and now she will never see grandchildren. I am trtying to hold it together for Dillon but this pain is so deep and uncontrollable I HATE IT!

Arthur, I totally understand.  My husband died on February 4th this year.  I'm feeling the sadness and loss in all the cells of my body.  It is so painful. I hope we cam help eachother online.

I managed to sleep until 5:15 AM ...that was an improvement.  I have things to do outside of home each day and other responsibilities.  I am doing what I need to do although the list of important tasks is growing.  That deep ache of sadness doesn't go away.  Its like slogging through a dense swamp to get things done. Yesterday I had an episode of intense range directed at Gary for leaving me alone to cope...I screamed at was scary..know its "normal" but still felt awful.

The early morning and beginnng the day is the hardest time.  I like the nights...can just read, watch tv and go to sleep.  Its hard to start the day...but I have a dog that waits for her walk.  That forces me to get up.

So sorry you all had to this board.  How are the nights for you?  How are you spending your time?  

WendyJ- how are you doing today?

Comment by Wendy J on February 13, 2012 at 1:10am

I think today will be tougher than yesterday, the funeral.  Surrounded by family and friends, the loneliness lifted..hoped Gary was hearing all the kind words said about him.

Wendy, which I could send more than virtual hugs to you. Yes, it will be a tough day and don't be afraid to lean on family and friends in this darkest of hours.
