I'm so sorry. Yes, it's really painful and I have learned in less than 2 months that some days are ok, then turn for the worse, then back and forth. It's a wide range of emotions that affect you mentally and physically. I still try to find ways to get through the each day. Yesterday, I was ok for the most part, then right before I went to sleep, I broke down into a very deep sorrowful cry. 

I have began communicating with others which helps. I talk mostly to strangers but it helps. 

Have a blessed day and take care of yourself.
