Anyone else having reoccurring nightmares? My husband passed away from a battle with colon cancer, but lately I am having these horrible nightmares. I get all anxious and can't fall asleep or it…Continue
"It's almost the 3rd anniversary for me (it will be at the end of January). I have my up and down days but I do know that I am trying. My hardest thing is trying to get out and be social again...I moved away from where Derek and I lived. I fall…"
"Terry, I think I got used to being able to go and see Derek in the hospital or hospice. When I couldn't go see him or care for him anymore it was a huge part of me gone. I would just wander around not knowing what to do. Around the time that I…"
"I completely agree with all of you. I work full time and come home to dogs, but I agree with you, widow85, it's hard to come home. I find I am more stressed and tense when I am home and I have moved since Derek has passed. It's so hard to…"
"Lonely...exactly how I feel. So many people around, I can work to be a member in the crowd most of the time but when I am uncomfortable I go into a shell. I spend more time with the people that I consider "safe"...really good friends and…"
"Hi. I am new to this group. I lost my husband of almost 7 years to colon cancer. He fought for 5.5 years of that. It's so difficult being in our position. All my friends are having children...a dream taken away. They get to come home to their…"
"Hi everyone. I lost my husband to a 5.5 year fight with colon cancer. Right now, I am fighting PTSD. I have been having these dreams/nightmares that are spawning from fear (at least that's what you psychologist thinks). It has been very…"
"I am right there tonight. I miss my husband. The TV is on, but it's in the background. I wish I could cry to get these. Emotions out but I can't right now....this sucks. All I truly want is to hug him, smell him and have him kiss…"
"I'm honestly not sure. I have them, then I don't. I know I get over worked about things....my brain just amplifies them for some reason. One of them might be that someone took my fish tank and did something to it...or the roof leaked..or…"
"I used to bake and decorate cakes. I was pretty good. When Derek got sick, it all stopped for the most part. Now that he is gone I have no desire to do it. It pains me that I don't have my "taste tester" around. Hopefully I can break…"
"Are you certain it is not from your meds? Some do have that side effect. My husband had PTSD for as long as I knew him. He would have nightmares and wake up with the bed soaking wet. You have my empathy. I was on a med years back for my FMS and had…"
"I most of the time speak of my husband in the present tense except if someone gets confused. Then I change it. But you are right, it feels so weird saying it. It's like I have "given up hope" or something...in some weird way, if I…"
"Yeah, I have heard that too. I am seeing a therapist and counselor and I am on anti-anxiety and anti-depressants as well. I just don't understand why they are of me driving off a mountain road. It makes me shutter. I literally claw in my bed…"
