"So very tired emotionally this week. I went back to work full time to occupy my mind and have been kept busy as I run my own company. I am soooo tired of people telling me “ you’re so strong”... I am angry I have to be so strong…"
I’m feeling a lot better, my anxiety gets worse at night. I spoke to my doctor and he thinks it’s psychosomatic, as Mark passed at night. I think it’s a generalized feeling of always being alone even when surrounded by…"
"Has anyone else experienced anxiety attacks recently? I had one tonight for the first time in a very long time and it’s probably the holidays and all the emotions that go with it but wow, totally out of nowhere! This is a terrible feeling and…"
"Tlang 5 sending g you a huge hug! Roxanna sending you a huge hug too! We will all get through today with tears and at some point I’m sure some smiles when we think of our loved ones!
Mark used to wake up super early when the kids were…"
"The hardest part is the loneliness, I miss just holding hands, laying in bed, being comforted, and no one can do that. It’s a horrible place to be and normally I’m so positive but tonight I’m so. I got wishing I had someone to just…"
"DeeDee, I'm brand new here, and just by chance clicked on your photo. My husband of 40 years also died on November 23. I'm in the same crazy state you are, trying my hardest to cope, but having days where I can't stop crying.…"
I’ve posted before but felt the need to write this down, and not on social media like Facebook or Twitter. My husband passed 3 weeks ago today. His Christmas gift came in the mail two days ago, I bought him a canvas print of the star…"
"I’ve been invited to a wedding as well, my “w” card is still too raw and fresh, 3 weeks today. People mean well but don’t quite understand that events such as these makes it harder. I politely said “ thank you so much…"
I know exactly how you feel. We did not choose this and I’m sure our loved ones did not choose this for us. Someone said to me yesterday that grief is like carrying around a glass ball, you cradle it so fragile at first, you hold it…"
"Some days I just want to stay in bed and cry all day but I know my late would kick my behind and say keep going gorgeous and be nice to people... how do you keep breathing? How do you wrap your head around a spouse not being here with you? I lost my…"
"Today I slept all day. I lost my love on Nov 23rd and some days I can’t breathe. People who text and call don’t always understand why I don’t feel like talking or why I don’t want to do anything. I was blessed by him and I…"
DeeDee, I'm brand new here, and just by chance clicked on your photo. My husband of 40 years also died on November 23. I'm in the same crazy state you are, trying my hardest to cope, but having days where I can't stop crying. It's been horrible. Fortunately, I have friends who contact me daily, where other ones wait for me to contact them. Strange how people react to death. Anyway, I just wanted to reach out to you considering we both lost our soul mates on the same day. Sending hugs to you and everything good.
