Know exactly how you feel Jenny and MrsD, half the time I wake in the middle of the night feeling as though I'm trapped in a black hole that I can't escape from (and it's really frightening), the other half of the time I just want to run away and find a black hole to bury myself in, so I don't have to do this any more. It's 10 months for me on Friday and really 10 is worse than 9, just like 9 was worse than 8. At this stage the passing of time still just means that I'm that much closer to being with my Love again, can't see when this rotten life is ever going to get better.
Hugs to you all, hope your day is peaceful.
Karla Dornacher's Caring Thought for today.
"Life's daily difficulties can pile up until it's hard to breathe under their weight.
Take a minute today to reflect on life's daily blessings and rejoice in all that we are given!"
I know we have all lost so much, but if I focus on everyone I still have, I am able to find some comfort...
Love and hugs to all!
Pretty bad when you only have a high school education, but you understand the monitors on tv in a hospital room. Tears
The sunshine today has really helped.
To add to my earlier post. I have the feeling I described, but then I realize of course that there's nowhere I can go, no journey, no matter the length or difficulty that could get me to where he is and then I just feel overwhelming sadness.
Sometimes I have this strong feeling of wanting to find him. It makes me want to pack up my backpack, strap on my hiking boots and head out. I would gladly undertake the toughest of journeys to see him again, as a matter of fact I feel like I want to, like I crave the physical challenge of such a journey. Like if only I could endure enough hardship I would somehow be able to reach him. I guess maybe my body wants to manifest the way I'm feeling internally.
I so hope that my love is here to help me,,,I need it so desperately
Jocelyn, When I was in my med center group, I remember looking at the leader and thinking that I could run it better. Then I thought I was just being arrogant. I am a child therapist and I do think I could do better than she did. She was so "trite."
Karen, I am really glad you ddi it your way. That is the best we can do.
MFarm, I am headed back to Minnesota tomorrow (in Arizona visiting in-laws). I am so sorry you fell! It is such a horrible jarring sensation and a little odd that you hurt our ring finger. Hope that decision works out. Mine is still on (I would have to get it cut off...lol) but it feels right there. I just got a note from a friend who fell on the ice. There is something doubly dismal about the weather this time of year. It is like Spring, Hope, will never happen.
Love to you all!
